Have y’all seen the online magazine Knitcircus?
From their website:
Knitcircus is an independent online magazine; we publish quarterly and knit every day. Knitcircus features knitting and sewing patterns, interviews, articles, and reviews, with an eco- and socially-responsible bent. Check out the interviews, reviews, articles, recipes and pattern previews for free! If you like what you see, the pattern collection is available for purchase while that issue’s live.
I happen to mention it today because I have an article in the current issue, titled “Birth of a Sock” wherein I describe my design process and how a pattern ends up in a book.
The magazine itself is free, so you can read the articles and preview the patterns. As mentioned in the description above, you can then purchase the pattern collection for each issue online. (The pattern collection is very reasonable priced, by the way: 16 patterns for $7.50 — a great deal!)
Here are photos of some of the designs in the Summer 2010 Collection:
Want to win a pattern collection or a one-year subscription?
Jaala, the editor of Knitcircus, has very generously offered ten copies of the Summer 2010 Pattern Collection and two full one-year subscriptions for a giveaway here. So that’s 12 winners in all.
To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this blog post by noon on Monday, May 24, 2010. The great and mighty Random Number Generator will pick the winners and I’ll announce them in Monday’s blog post.
In my knitting news, I have to report that I spent more time killing zombies last night (curse you, Plants vs. Zombies!) than I did knitting, so my progress is woefully little.
Lucy is too busy tidying up to come to the blog.
