On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan, my guests will be some of the gang from Team Ravelry. We're going to talk about some the things that they are working on, their philosophy on the fiber arts community, and their most recent milestone of getting to 3 million users on Ravelry.com. I'm not exactly sure who from this dynamic team will be joining us on the show, but I know it's going to be great. You'll want to tune in for this episode.

For our next show, my guest will be Rick Mondragon, editor of Knitter's Magazine. He'll be talking about K110, the Spring 2013 issue, in local yarn stores and on newsstands now, as well as teasing you with what you'll see in the upcoming Summer issue.
We invite you to listen as he takes you into the pages and between the lines of Knitter's Magazine. Gain insight on how it all comes together—stitch, color, and silhouette—along with logical approaches to what appears on the page and why. You'll want to have your hard copy or digital edition (on your iPad, or computer) of Knitter's 110 at hand for the full experience of Rick's visit with us. (Note: If you don't have a copy of K110, you can follow along with the projects on the K110 patterns pages on Ravelry.)
Besides being our editor, he is a creative designer with lots to share. And I know you'll love his insights as much as I do.
Laura lives in upstated New York where the sunny season is short and there is plenty of time to knit! Laura is currently enamored with lace, and incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this direction.
You can follow Laura (and her design exploits) on her blog,twitter, facebook, and in her Ravelry group.
