WWW: Knitwear model hits the big-time; charity knitter hits milestone.

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne started his career as a model; and not just any model… he was the featured model for Rowan Yarn’s Denim People booklet, published in 2004.

To celebrate his win, Rowan has made the Brooklyn sweater pattern available for free download.


Sibling’s Fair Isle dress. LOVE this.

I love this time of year in the fashion world… all the fashion shows for Fall and Winter provide some excitement and inspiration for cold-weather dressing, just as I’m starting to get tired of my own winter clothes.

UK designer Sibling showed some rather clever uses of Fair Isle knits. Full slideshow here.


A true labor of love.

Knitter Anna Taylor of Virginia is celebrating a rather wonderful milestone: in the past 9 years, she has knitted and donated 1000 children’s sweaters to a local charity.

    Hello – I love reading this blog and the knitty website! You have the best stories and information.

    The most recent page transformation of is nice, but the banner (which is really cool) is very large and doesn’t re-size. It takes up one third of the viewing page. With today’s articles I can’t view the entire photo of the sweater model because of the banner. I just thought you might like that feedback.

    Thank you for all of the work you do with Knitty! LOVE IT!
