Yarn Forward

I'm so excited I don't know where to start. So I'll start with the most exciting news. The latest issue of Yarn Forward is about to hit the news stands. Ireceived my sub copy yesterday and it's another fab issue. And I've got a pattern in the new issue too. It's a lace shawl knitted in Merino Lace. It starts at the back of the neck with tiny flower buds and gradually grows outwards and downwards with hte flowers getting bigger and finishing off with a leaf lace border. It's easy to knit and takes one skein of Merino Lace. And I've done a special offer for Yarn Forward readers. Quote 'Yarn Forward' in the info to seller box and get 10% off.

I love the modelled pics in the magazine too. Here are a few pictures I took before I sent the shawl off modelled by Vanessa.

I've just listed some more Merino Lace in the shop so pop over and have a look. Remember, mention Yarn Forward and get 10% off. Talking about Yarn Forward, I'm working on a new design for them right now. Cast on last night and got another project I need to cast on over the weekend.

Here are some of the new Merino Lace yarns:
More yarns to come on Etsy over the weekend too including lots of Exotic Lace for the new Midnight Stole.

I got some more reading material yesterday. The latest Yarn Harlot book arrived together with Divas Don't Knit. I'm getting into knit lit. Have lent my Blossom Street books to a friend and she seems to like them too.
Also I thought the winter issue of Knitty was due out in January but it's out in December and I've got a pattern in there too. My first Knitty pattern. I'm so excited.

I love the pattern, but the overseas subscription for the magazine is too pricey for me. Any idea if this magazine is sold here in the States?

You thoroughly deserve your success.

Mmmm that midnightblue sure is pretty- the patterns is beautiful and only one skein? !!! great for all of us one skein buyers( just because I need a skein in just that color trauma when visiting yarn stores). Nothing more satisfying than to get that one skein used in a pretty shawl.
Happy reading and publishing:-))
