editor’s note

THE FALL SEASON is associated with endings and subsequent beginnings. The end of summer, the start of the new school year, and the crisp air bring the bittersweet feeling of nostalgia. The shifting weather calls knitters to cast on a multitude of projects after a break from the needles during the fiery summer. At knitscene, we’ve used 2019 as a time to explore the elements through the seasons. Pagan tradition links fall to the element water, which represents cleansing, rejuvenation, and the bodies of water on Earth and in ourselves. The flowing of water is like the passing of the fall season—it breaks down what was before and makes way for the new. Ideas such as these, along with universal visual representations of water, informed the projects that make up this issue.…

mollygirl yarn

I remember the first time I came across the wonderful colors of MollyGirl Yarn. I was wandering around a trade show when a wall of radiant rainbows appeared in front of me. This booth of brilliance was screaming my name! As a music lover, I was won over right then and there by yarn base names such as Harmony, Rock Star, Honky Tonk, and Bossa Nova, and color names such as Raspberry Beret, Wonderwall, Bitter Sweet Symphony, and Love Me Tender. When I met dyer Angela Cronin, it was a dyer/knitter match made in heaven. It was no surprise that the self-proclaimed “Crafty Mastermind” behind the yarn is just as wonderful as the things she makes. So, how did the stars align to bring MollyGirl Yarn into the hearts and onto…

sittin’ & knittin’ with judy greer

Actress, author, model, and director Judy Greer has been popping up on screens a lot these days. But when I had a chance to sit down with her at The Little Knittery in the Los Feliz Village area of Los Angeles, all we wanted to talk about was knitting! Her Instagram is peppered with posts and stories about what is on her needles. She’s modest and hilarious, and we dove deep into her darkest knitting confessions and how this hobby helps her live a healthier life. Judy started her knitting journey by reading various articles about how the craft can help people stop smoking. “I wanted to quit smoking cigarettes,” she recalls. “I would say that knitting caused me to cut back a lot, but I really just wanted something to…
