Introducing #Crochet Magazine

If you look for crochet inspiration on the magazine stands right now, you’ll be spoilt for choice, there are some fabulous autumn issues on sale.

issue 1 coverThe latest “new kid on the block” is #Crochet, and I’m pleased to say it features two of my favourites designs  alongside a brand new collection I designed especially for this first issue.

Up first is this gorgeous stool cover, which I designed for the Dorling Kindersley Book “Crochet”. I have always loved the colour combination I chose for this project and I’ve used it several times since. Every time I see it pop up in print it makes me smile and cheers up a dull day!

I was also very chuffed indeed to see the New Lanark Wrist Warmers I originally designed for Love Crochet make an appearance, made in one of my favourite British wools, they are simple, quick and make ideal gifts.

Finally, the editors asked for a collection suitable as a desk set. Designed in rainbow brights, the tiny garland is just the right size to hang across a filing cabinet or computer screen. The pencil case and pot holder continue the rainbow theme and you’ll even spot an ipad cover and phone cosy – ideal as a beginner project.

I may be slightly older than the demographic this magazine is aimed at, but I have to admit I loved it.  There is a crochet collar by Emma Escott (pictured on the cover), which is beautifully styled and really shows off her design to best advantage. I also love Sarah London’s Turkish Delight blanket.

There is a great mix of projects and interviews in this first issue, so do look out for it. Priced at £7.99 it would be a great gift for someone who has recently taken up the hook, or even as a special treat for yourself.

The next issue should be on sale before Christmas and I’ve hooked up something rather pretty for that one –  no clues now – you’ll just have to wait and see!

  • First windfalls. We grew an apple tree from a pip when my daughter was just a tiny tot. It was one of the first things we planted when we moved into this house. A lot has happened in 20 years, this tree reminds me that gardening is about hope, optimism, unexpected gifts and finding beauty every day ... and patience - it was 15 years before this bore fruit!

Sometimes I'm in such a hurry to get my daily walk "out of the way" that I forget to just stop and look around me. Today I wandered down a different path and found a huge array of mushrooms, toadstools & fungi hiding in the leaf litter.
