Tomorrow Is a Very Big Day!Otterwise will be hosting a stop on the blog tour for Knitcircus Magazine, and Editor Jaala Spiro will be stopping by to chat about crafters and giving.
Long before I thought about submitting my Espalier Shawl pattern, Knitcircus has been one of my favorite magazines. They always have wonderful designs for knitting, but they also include lovely surprises like insightful reviews of books, yarn and helpful tools, recipes, sewing patterns, and great interviews with people like Ysolda Teague and, in the most recent issue Lily Chin (beginning on page 27).
To give you a glimpse into the high quality of the magazine, here are some of my favorite patterns/recipes from recent issues: (links are to the Ravelry pattern page, for more photos)
From Issue # 6, the Goth Gauntlets and the Black Bean Salad, both by Elizabeth Morrison.
From Issue # 7, the Crop Circle Shawl by Michelle Miller and the Indian Corn Scarf by Jeanette Cross.
