Slave to the Needles #1

Slave to the Needles #1

by A J

Issue #1 of Aimee's adorable knit-love zine is a great place for new knitters to start. In standard format, this zine gives us more basic how-to's: how to knit, cast on, as well as patterns for knitting a thong, a birth control cozy, mittens and flared legwarmers to name a few. It is all illustrated with cute comics that are clear and easy to follow. What really fleshes out this zine and makes it unique is its various editorials on knitting culture: knitting and feminism, interviews with indie rock knitters, and a great reading list for children and adults. Aimee definitely has a passion for knitting and needlework, and her zine is a great way to get inspired!
