Summer issue


We have had such a busy couple of weeks getting the summer issue of Yarn Forward magazine done and off to the printers.   Its funny how deadline week causes technology that would usually behave perfectly to malfunction, camera batteries refuse to charge, MACs won’t connect to the internet, phone signals disappear and other minor disasters such as parking tickets and traffic jams cause a lot of un-necessary tension. 

That is all behind us now, the magazine is safely with the printers where it belongs and the lovely Marianne stepped in at the last minute and saved us from front cover hell.  We think that Laura looks gorgeous on the cover, don’t you?  She is wearing a cardigan crocheted in Phildar yarn, designed by the oh so talented Julia Vaconsin.  The other 2 designs on the cover are a STUNNING wedding shawl designed by Liz Lovick and a cute child’s shrug designed by Katy Armstrong and modelled by my daughter, Trinity.   I can’t wait for you to see the other patterns that we have in this issue, I think we have a good range of patterns that will keep everyone knitting through the summer weeks.  (assuming we get any more summery weather in the UK that is!)

The magazine is due back with us in time for Woolfest at the end of June, subscribers will be able to collect their copies from the show if they wish and all remaining copies will be posted out the following week commencing Monday 30th June.  All the international copies will be sent to subscribers while we are at WoolFest and if you are a UK subscriber who is definitely not coming to the show then please email Dee (dee@yarnforwardmagazine.) and she will make sure your copy goes out just before Woolfest. 

The magazine is now available to pre order from the website here.  A preview page will be up in the next few days.  All pre orders of the magazine will be posted the week commencing Monday 30th June.

Look out for news of our summer knit-a-long that Sarah is arranging very soon!
