Amirisu is a fairly new online knitting magazine from Japan.  Just like Pom Pom Quarterly, I love that a new publication for knitting is out, doing well and has a modern take on an aged industry.  It clearly has its own personality and the editors clearly have a vision.

The editors at Amirisu had decided to make Brooklyn Tweed their Featured Brand in their latest issue, Spring 2014.  Inside, there's a wonderful interview with Jared, and two designs from Leila Raabe and me.  Leila designed, yet another, amazing hat - Preble.  It's lightly textured with a simple cable up one side.  And, I went with a Spring-friendly garment.

Tsubasa is a sweet lace-front dolman with short sleeves.  Tsubasa means "wings" in Japanese, and when I decided on the lace pattern, it reminded me of wings.  What I didn't anticipate was how the entire silhouette would have wings too!  A lovely coincidence.  

As the snow falls outside my window, it's hard to imagine the temperatures ever warm enough to wear this sweater.  But soon enough the days will be longer, the trees will start growing their leaves and I'll be so happy I have this sweater to pull on.
