Ironic!

So now I'm reading the actual Knitty articles, when I come across an interesting quote in this one:

"When you do peruse knitting patterns, try to train yourself to look at the clothes, not the model or the setting. Knitting publications that have bigger production budgets spend more on photography, stylists, and models. This can add up to distracting accessories and unintentionally misleading poses."

I can't help but point out that the cover shot of the issue in question employed a professional model, photographer, and make-up artist. I'm not saying it's a bad thing... maybe I'm just saying it's distracting, something I expect to find in Vogue Knitting, or a bit out of Knitty character. Then again, I no longer understand the character of "Knitty."

However, I do not exclude that the designer of the pattern was responsible for orchestrating this "look," not Knitty itself. Anyone know?

God, even the articles suck this time around. Is it weird to anyone else that there are very few familiar names?

I would think that cover shot was the brainchild of the Knitty editors, but I could be wrong. I just can't imagine any normal person taking a picture like that!
