New magazines and books for crocheters.

It’s been a busy month or so for new publications here at the shop. In fact, some of our newest books and magazines come and go quickly after an Instagram introduction, not even lasting long enough on our shelves to warrant a blog post. For today, I’ll shine a light on the two latest crochet magazines, in case you’ve missed them in all the hubbub.

The Winter 2017 issue of Interweave Crochet features an article on practicing mindfulness with crochet, something many makers understand well. There’s also a tutorial on crochet chart-reading, a must for those looking to move into more complicated patterning.

This issue of Crochet Scene is packed full of patterns for garments, accessories, jewelry, and home goods, made in yarns ranging from lace weight to super bulky.

Courtney Kelley, of Kelbourne Woolens, has designed a cowl for this issue, made with Fibre Company Tundra.

Other recent acquisitions in the crochet department include Tamara Kelly’s Quick Crochet for the Home, Kate Bruning’s Let’s Go Camping: Crochet Your Own Adventure, and Modern Crochet Mandalas.

Come by the shop to see the latest crochet publications, and to plan your next project!

More new magazines.

Two more new magazines have landed here at the shop!


We were pleased to see a familiar yarn on the cover of the 2015 issue of Crochet Scene.


Soft, drapey Shibui Staccato is a perfect choice for a lightweight crochet garment like this one. Look to Crochet Scene for a variety of crocheted garments and accessories, from mitts and cowls to totes and crocheted jewelry.



The Fall 2015 issue of Interweave Knits is a good one, bursting with cozy sweaters that have us anxious for cool weather.



I spotted lots of friendly faces in this issue, like a pullover in Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, and another in Fibre Company’s newest yarn, yet to be released.


DSCN4799I was also pleased to see an article on Baa Ram Ewe and their revitalization of the Yorkshire textile industry. We were the first US stockist of their Titus yarn, and can hardly wait for the arrival of their new yarn later this season!


Come by the shop to pick up a few new magazines to feed your knit and crochet habit. See you there!
