Back in the beginning of January I came across this zine on Laura's blog. It looked interesting, and my appetite was whetted further when I discovered that it was available only in Toronto. I had to find a way to get a copy down here in Boston!
Luckily, Jae heard my cry and agreed to expand distribution to include mail orders. For the low price of 6USD, she sent me my very own copy of Take Back the Knit. From what I see in this new publication, the Toronto area is bursting with creative knitters.
There are 13 designs intermixed with personal essays about knitting, recipes, and stories about yarn-shopping adventures. This is definitely a publication that needs a wider audience. If you're interested in receiving a copy of your own, contact Jae via her blog (it's linked in the paragraph above) or email her at knitwit[at]bust[dot]com.
Although I like the printed format of the zine, production costs must impose some limits on the print quality. If this zine takes off, I wonder if Jae would consider an on-line, e-mail subscription.
