IT’S HARD TO SAY where my life ends and

Fringe Supply Co. begins. I don’t just mean because, as a small-business owner, I pour so much time, energy and love into it. Or that I wear so many hats. I mean that it’s a direct reflection of my life as a knitter, and vice versa. When I find something I love and use, I buy it for Fringe so you can have it too. When I can’t find something I love enough, I design it and have it made — for me and for you. I’m a bag lady, so there are a lot of bags — but only the most useful ones. I keep tools (especially stitch markers and pins) close at hand in pretty little trays, so I’ve added the perfect ones to the shop. Essentially, I want my knitting life to be as beautiful and organized as possible, and I want the same for you! When it came to photographing this year’s lookbook, I wanted to tell that story. I flew to Seattle to shoot with my friend Kathy Cadigan again. We rented a house that’s not terribly unlike my own.* (In fact, that trunk on the opposite page came home with me!) We knitted, we went out to lunch, did a little shopping, and everywhere we went, we took our knitting with us. As we all do. Contrary to retail norms, I don’t change things up very much in the webshop — a byproduct of only selling goods I personally love, use and believe in. But I do have a few surprises for you this holiday season. The biggest one is pictured at left — my beloved Field Bag now in four canvas colors. In addition to the wildly popular natural bag, you’ll now find it in grey, black and army green. We’re trying them out for the holidays, so make sure to let me know what you think. Again and always, thank you so much for supporting small and artisanal businesses — mine and the others represented here. Here’s wishing you the happiest possible holiday season and a joyful new year— —Karen Templer, Proprietor
