I also spent a lot of time reading some back-copies of selvedge magazine I was given. It's a total revelation to find such an intelligent magazine that covers all textile art and crafts, its also beautifully produced, I'm a total convert.
Aren't the illustrations gorgeous?
It has the most interesting articles I've come across in a craft magazine, and the coolest layout and design.
Eagle-eyed readers will note the kniterly virtues of string noted on the right of this page.
And of course all the adverts appeal to me too...
I started a birthday present for mum, another haven (on request) in her chosen shade of cocoon: lavender ice.
And finally, isn't this a cool way to advertise christmas gifts? I like the high quota of knitted things.
You see the square beanie on the second to last row? Thought I would knit one for my sister, as she's very outdoorsy, what with being an activity instructor and new navy recruit. The question is, whether to add pom-poms?
