Three new magazines.

Knit Simple’s Holiday 2012 issue offers patterns for gift-knitting, grouped by their intended recipient, like so: “For Mom,” “For Dad,” “For the Coworker,” “For the Teacher,” etc.

Knitting Traditions is full of colorwork and lace, shawls, mittens, gloves, and stories that give historical context to knitting techniques and patterns.

Come by the shop to flip through these magazines, peruse our many knitting and crochet books, and plan your next project.

All of the fall knitting and crochet magazines are full of project ideas, cozy sweaters or shawls that you want to cast on for immediately. Not every magazine, though, is packed with great reading material. Knitting Traditions has that advantage over all the other knitting magazines. Pick it up if you’re interested in reading about the history of knitting, learning more about techniques from different eras and many parts of the world. The fall 2011 issue just arrived, and a stack of them has made a home on the teacart.
