Knitscene, Spring 2018

How is it time for spring issues already?  Eeep, January's just started and I feel like I'm behind already.

Knitscene always tries to be really fun, and I think that's what they're going for with their '90s throwback theme in this issue.  To me, the issue does succeed in being fun -- the styling is perfectly Clueless -- but not necessarily giving you a lot of must-knit pieces.  I was in elementary school and then high school during the '90s, and I cannot remember wearing so many crop tops.  Do you?  And if I wasn't wearing crop tops when I was 16, it doesn't really feel like I'm going to start now, when I'm two decades older.  There are a few really cute pieces, though:

The really exciting part of this issue is that it has designs from six designers who are publishing with Knitscene and/or Interweave for the first time, and three of them are Canadian!  This is so exciting; there are already a few designers putting Canada on the knitting map, but seeing Canadians featured in a major knitting magazine is still a thrill.
