Vogue(R) Knitting, Knit Simple(TM), and other knitting and crafts magazines are published by SoHo Publishing Co.'s book branch, Sixth&Spring Books. Sixth&Spring, based in New York City, releases 15 to 20 new knitting, crochet, sewing, crafts, and lifestyle titles each year, with a backlist of over 100 titles. Cascade Yarns was formed by Bob and Jean Dunbabin, who developed a line of 100% Peruvian highland merino wools, including Cascade 220 (a worsted weight), to provide knitters with both high quality and low cost. Cascade 220(R), which comes in hundreds of colors, is one of the most popular yarns on the market today. Tukwila, Washington is home to the Dunbabins.
