Time to feast your eyes on our glam-tastic winter edition - all inspired by the Art Deco and Art Nouveau stylings of iconic 1960s-70s British brand, Boba. We have ten modern knits designed through the lens of the Biba aesthetic, which in turn was inspired by even earlier periods. We shot part of this issue in a 1920s style cocktail bar in London and in the spirit of reviving vintage trends (as Biba itself did in the 1960s and 1970s) our winter recipes are new takes on classic cocktails, adding a little extra seasonal spice and sparkle.

Featuring designs by: BRISTOL IVY // OLGA BURAYA-KEFELIAN // CIRILIA ROSE // RACHEL COOPEY // COURTNEY SPAINHOWER // KIYOMI BURGIN // JEMIMA BICKNELL // SOPHIE SCOTT // AMU VAN DE LAAR // CLARE LAKEWOOD.

We are particularly smitten with Katie Green's Bowerbird comic, which beautifully illustrates the unending potential and dreams we have for newly acquired yarn. In addition to lovely illustrations, we have some excellent writing for you this issue, with articles on Activist Embroidery by Francesca Baldry, Lora Angelova's explorations as a Heritage Chemist, and Anna Maltz shares her ideas on beating the winter blues. So get a head start on beating those blues and join us in embracing the glamorous side of winter knitting with this line up of woolly lovelies.
