Disclaimer; I haven't been paid to recommend this magazine I'm just sharing something I found interesting x
I hope you're staying warm in this cold snap we're having. Do you remember a recent post about a new partwork magazine I'd found called The Art of Quilting? Partworks are usually hobby or interest magazines exploring their chosen topic over a (sometimes though not always) specified number of issues or parts.
Well honeys, I spotted another one and since there is very little to do right now because of the bitter cold except snuggle on the sofa with our furbaby Jade and share a blanket I brought it home :)
It's called "Simple Stylish Knitting" and is actually not bad at all. Let's have a look shall we..
As with The Art Of Quilting the magazine is presented on the front of a large (A2) piece of cardboard..
Issue one is supplied with two (25gm) balls of yarn in fuscia pink & silver grey. It also has a pair of 4mm bamboo knitting needles and a yarn needle. Among the easy projects to start off with are a fox ipad cover (so cute!) and a pom pom scarf - which I may try knitting for our furbaby Jade because I know she'd look adorable in it :)
Issue two is again presented on a large cardboard backing...
You know I've always wanted to complete one of those large blankets made up of lots of little knitted squares, I've even started work on squares over the years but I've never stayed with it, maybe this time I might, especially if the bitter cold outside keeps me snuggled on the sofa with Jade :)
There are two sites set up to accompany this partwork honeys. The first one can be found here although this one only really shows the details of the first couple of issues. The other site dedicated to this magazine is however worth a look. You can find it at Simple Stylish Knitting.Com and it has articles, video tutorials and lots of other cool stuff. You can also leave your email for updates, crafts etc.
The first issue was only 99p and the second issue was £1.99 with each weekly issue afterwards at the regular price of £3.99. There is a total of ninety issues in the series.
Any thoughts honeys? Do you knit or crochet? Have you ever knitted a throw? Till next time dear ones, huggles always xxx
ps: If I manage to knit that scarf for Jade I'll share a photo of our wee angel wearing her scarf x
