It seems to be a sign of the times, not the knitting times so much as the economy and post-pandemic shuffling of our world. Knitter’s Magazine was the first knitting publication I subscribed to, back in the 1990s when I learned to knit. I still have dozens of issues of the magazine and some of their books. To me, investing in a magazine like that is the same as investing in books, and the past issues are something to be treasured.
In the past two months, in addition to lots of other books I reviewed over on Mystery of a Shrinking Violet, I tried out a number of books about crochet, which is a craft I love, but it had been so long since I’ve crocheted that I felt I needed a refresher. I crocheted a lot when I was young, but had to give it up in my 30s due to tendinitis. I want to take crochet up again in a small way.
