One of the things I love best about working for Knitty is ‘meeting’ all the designers whose work I edit. Some of them have become friends, which has definitely been an unexpected perk of the job!

Lately, we’ve had some patterns from well-known designers whose work I’ve long admired, whose names I saw in the books and magazines I devoured when I learned to knit in 2000. I’ve had email in my inbox from people like Nicky Epstein, Mags Kandis, Nancy Marchant, and – gulp – Norah Gaughan.

I have fervently admired Norah Gaughan’s work since I bought my first knitting magazine (VK Fall 2000). Her work inspires and excites me more than almost any other designer’s. To be editing patterns from her now… it’s a bit intimidating.
