New Designer Interviews!

As you may have noticed already, it has been a busy week here at Knit Picks! Not only have we added lots of new yarny goodness, but there are also many new kits as well! And if you are like me and love to hear about the inspiration behind a design or simply how an idea transformed into a finished project, these designer interviews with Kerin are a real treat!

And to pass along the inside scoop on these amazing new kits, Kerin and I worked together to bring you another round of designer interviews! You can now see videos for the Shift Totes, the Dimensions Wrap, the Tiddlywinks Baby Set and the Fancy Feet kit simply by clicking on the “video” tab when viewing the kits. Besides finding out the spark of creativity for these patterns, Kerin also mentions specific construction design and techniques as well as tips and tricks. Another thing that I really like about these videos is how it adds yet another way to see the actual designs knit up, how large they are as well as how they move and drape.

Here is Kerin talking about the Shift Totes, a personal favorite of mine :)

I also think the Tiddlywinks Baby Set would make the most adorable gift – plus the name is just so fun to say! And coming from an Art History background, the Dimensions Wrap is a design that totally appeals to my artistic sensibilities. I love the clean, modern feel of the pattern – so simple, but it works beautifully together. Not to mention that the sample we have is a dream to wrap yourself up in, Aloft is so airy and lightweight that is seems almost magical. And last but not least is the Fancy Feet kit! I love the idea of shorter socks for the summer. And in the video, Kerin talks about a unique design detail that make these socks fit perfectly!

What are some of your favorite new kits?
