Thin Men of Manhattan! And Mr. Boy!
June 2, 2009
It’s always exciting when a new issue of Twist Collective goes live, and I get to see what we wrote. In the brand-new Summer 2009 issue, there are additional delights:
Franklin, at the height of his powers in “13 Ways of Looking at a Knitter.” A wonderful piece of literate, laugh-out-loud whimsy, with drawings reminiscent of Picasso’s late work. (My Franklin crush is obviously out of control: hello, Picasso?)
Mr. Boy! A top-down, saddle-shoulder pullover, sized for little boys (and little girls) and big strapping men (and big strapping women). In this photo, Mr. Elio of Phila*Craft fame is modelling a prototype of his mother’s design. I have it on good authority that wearing this sweater turns an ordinary human boy into a cherub or a seraph.
(I’m knitting one for Joseph, in Rowan Denim, on that assumption.)
There are many other beautiful, knitterly designs, as always. Really proud of those Twist girls.
