Knitter's newsflash!

This is one of those spontaneous, must write posts for all you knitters out there! I have just discovered the online magazine Twist Collective. It was begun in 2008, so I feel very embarrassed to not have known about it before. This, however, is probably a good thing since I just perused the spring/summer issue and have added at least 10 patterns to my wish/to-do list!

What is not to love about this magazine?

- It's free!

- It is a showcase for independent designers.

- The photography is professional, the pictures and models are beautiful.

- There are short articles, tricks and tips.

- The patterns are for sale on the site.

- There is "click through" advertising to learn more and/or purchase yarns. No more fussing with post-its “so I can check back later.”

I don't know about you, but I love getting my patterns in PDF.  They are easier to organize, better for the environment and, for middle-aged people like, me the combination PDF + IPad has changed my life! I can make the pattern as big as I need!

So, if you would like to see some beautiful designs, head over to Twist Collective!


Coming later this week:

- Knit-a-squillion update

- Sharing my wish list - come see what my fingers are dieing to make!
