Here’s a quote from the latest Vogue Knitting email:
Introducing the VK360°
Vogue Knitting Holiday 2008 is now officially on sale…and on video!
This issue, we decided to put every project up on the big screen—due in large part to all of your positive feedback (thanks VK readers!).
It seems they have started posting videos of the projects in the magazine, showing each garment on a real live model, who turns around and so forth.
Wish they had done this last year.
But of course, it wouldn’t have worked last year.
Last year, they put out the Holiday issue with (what I have come to think of as) the infamous "Nutcracker" sweater — a loose-fitting smock that, as I learned to my sorrow, was shown with a whole lot of sweater bunched up behind the model’s back to make it look like a cute little cardigan.
You may have read some of my "positive feedback" on the subject here. I had a few things to say about it.
Yes indeed, I think I can take full credit for bringing the editors of VK to their senses (and their morals) and turning the whole thing around. No, no, no need to thank me. I did it for all of us.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go knit myself a knitting superhero cape.
