Knitting and Crochet Magazine Feature

Thank you Knitting and Crochet magazine for including Hand Knitted Things photo tutorial for the Picot Edge Cast Off this month ( Issue 51). You can see this tutorial in full by clicking here.

 I picked out a few features in this issue that caught my eye...

A sea side themed issue with instructions for this sweet little beach hut by Amanda Berry.

This featured picture from Nicki Trenches book 'Crochet Living' caught my eye. I love the pastel colours here.

'How I learned to knit'...features readers and designers stories about how, when and why they came to knitting. There are tips and advice for new knitters (and those not so new to the craft).

Last but not least this fish themed colour work cushion by Wendy Mould. There is a chart and full instructions included.

On the menu today...Mustard and Blueberry

Newly completed Fair Isle Fish using mustard and blueberry contrast colours. Three colours are used on the fair isle pattern repeat, rather than the traditional two. The extra thread is carried across the back in the usual way. On this piece there is no need to 'weave' the yarn as the threads are hidden away. The basic Fair Isle Fish pattern is available to purchase, click on the link below.
