In Vogue

I'm in Vogue Knitting! I'm amazed and delighted to have made it into a magazine I've been reading since the 1980s. (Remember the "Out of Africa" spring/summer issue? The big shoulders? The even bigger hair? The articles by Elizabeth Zimmermann?) Lee Ann Dalton, who writes the "Made in Canada" column wrote to me a while back to ask if I'd do an interview, and the fruits of her labours are now on view in the Fall, 2013 issue, available for mobile devices now, but available at newsstands only the first week of September. I don't have a tablet (am I the only person without one?), but I do have an I-pod (mostly for listening to audiobooks), so I downloaded the magazine and had a look on my itty-bitty screen. This is the featured photo,


and it's accompanied by some very kind sentences about my approach to sweater design. To be described as a "fresh face" at the age of 56 is definitely smile-worthy. Thanks so much, Lee Ann.

  1. Congrats on making the "big time"! (And no, you're not the only one without a tablet.) I'll definitely be watching for that issue when it hits the newsstands.

  2. Pretty dang cool! And I've loved this vest ever since I saw it last year (when I "found" your blog). Pretty cool for your daughter to be the model in Vogue, too. Congratulations to you both! I'll be looking for that issue, too!

  3. Pretty cool, indeed, given that she's not wearing a scrap of makeup. I think she might have started off the afternoon with a swipe of lipgloss, but after a few slurps of coffee that was gone!

  7. Congratulations Elizabeth. I picked up my copy of Vogue this afternoon on a trip to TO at Romni Wools. Great to see the piece on you and your amazing work.
