What happened to Making Monday, I hear you call! Well, Natalie the Yarn Yard is currently en vacance, so Making Monday is suspended until she returns, hopefully tanned and relaxed!
For this week’s Trading Tuesday post we have some very exciting special offers to celebrate the launch of a brand new knitting magazine titled “Knit Now”. This magazine, which retails at £4.99 from all good newsagents, features a massive 43 stylish patterns within its pages, and the magazine has made a conscious decision to focus only on smaller projects such as bags, accessories like scarves, gloves, socks, hats and the like, as well as some baby garments. No adult garments will be found though, as research led the magazine folks to believe that most knitters don’t have the time to knit and complete large adult garment projects. As a knitter of small items myself – exclusively so, so far – I can definitely attest to this. Whilst my project monogamy remains, I simply cannot commit to one project for the months that it would likely take me. So I much prefer smaller items, quicker gratification, and less frustration if you fall out of love with the project midway through. Packed with gorgeous designs, I would definitely recommend this magazine to anyone wanting fun, well designed, interesting smaller projects and ideas.
Issue 1 features Artesano and Manos del Uruguay yarns quite heavily so I am delighted to be able to offer the yarns featured in these patterns as Special Offers – with up to 30% discount from RRP!
