Just got word via a press release that Eunny Jang is leaving Interweave Knits in March to “pursue other opportunities.” Lisa Shroyer, was has been the editor of Knitscene for the past five years, will take over as editor of Interweave Knits and Knit. Wear.
Jang has been editor of IK since 2007.
The press release says that Shroyer’s guidance has taken Knitscene from being an annual special edition magazine to a quarterly that this year is becoming a full subscription magazine (you used to have to buy it by the issue).
“Lisa has built a reputation as a creative editor with a great sense of style and deep knowledge of the knitting industry,” says Interweave yarn group editorial director Karin Storm.
The company is searching for a new editor for Knitscene. Wouldn’t that be an awesome job? I’m available…
