Laine Magazine, No. 15.

The newest issue of Laine Magazine is here with a fresh new look, and two covers to choose from!

Laine Magazine is a publication out of Finland, a knitting and lifestyle magazine with a love of natural fibers as its focus, and a reputation for beautiful designs and artful photography.

This autumn issue is packed with inspiring sweater designs and all kinds of techniques – brioche, colorwork, cables, bobbles, and lace.

Laine’s redesign brings three new columns – Jeanette Sloan Talks Fibre, Päivi Kankaro’s Five Ways, and Where I Knit, a regular piece that pictures people knitting in their favorite spot, and talking about crafting in their everyday lives.

Laine magazines are $30 each – come by the shop or order online for local pickup or shipping! We also have Laine No. 8, No. 10, No. 11, No. 12, and No. 13 in stock, along with some of Laine’s recent books. See you at the shop!
