As always, when we were presented with the opportunity to work with Lisa Shroyer for the Fall 2010 issue of Knitscene, we jumped at the chance! The 5th anniversary issue is packed with a wide variety of projects covering a broad spectrum of techniques, styles and yarns.
One of the unique and interesting aspects of Knitscene is that each issue features a designer in a mini collection of original patterns. Past designers have recently included Connie Chang Chinchio, Melissa Wherle + Cathy Carron. This issue features a good friend of the Fibre Co and Kelbourne Woolens, Hannah Fettig! If you remember, our most recent interview was conducted with Hannah, and we are so excited to see her latest mini collection in Knitscene.

One of Hannah's sweaters is knit out of a gorgeous shade of Organik, Seawater, a deep rich navy blue. It begins with a yoke with ribbing that increases for the body and sleeves. The body is a longer with a lean cut. We believe it is a really beautiful example of Hannah's clean and wearable designs paired with the soft hand and gorgeous hue of the Organik.

But that's not all! We are delighted to each have a pattern in this issue -- Courtney designed an incredibly wearable cardigan for the "Geek for Ribbing" story, and Kate designed a lace shawl for the "Fundamental Yarnover" story. Stay tuned for photographs and details on these two projects.
