The new issue, Spring 2015, of amirisu, may be my most favorite issue among seven.  Yes, seven! I can’t believe we’ve published 7 issues already. It has been a great journey for both of us.

The hand knitting / yarn / pattern industry is now at a turning point. The game is changing, and soon, we will see a whole new landscape. I don’t know what that is yet, but I want to be there as amirisu, witness and experience the changes together with Tokuko. I am doing my best to keep the magazine current and relevant… learning, searching, connecting everyday incessantly.

Hope to see you at Eight.


On a personal note, I’ve been to Tim Burton exhibition last weekend, and truly enjoyed the show. He is so talented and full of creepy ideas. I want to be like that.
