No more Stitches? I was shocked to see this bit of news today, relating to the knitting world at large. It seems to be a sign of the times. 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. To me, investing in a magazine like that is the same as investing in books, and they are to be treasured. The magazine stopped publication a number of years ago now, but they were still publishing books, and they continued the Stitches conventions. Until now.

8 favorite crochet books
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.
