I am so proud to announce that an article about my new book, Crochet Saved My Life, was featured in the first issue of Knit Edge Magazine, which came out a week ago.
Knit Edge Magazine
Knit Edge Magazine is a brand new magazine in the needlearts scene. It is produced by Cooperative Press. The book launched in 2012 with a premiere “issue zero” at the summer TNNA show. This issue, released September 14, 2012, is the first full issue of the magazine. The issue includes:
- Both patterns and articles by Varian Brandon and Shannon Okey
- Knitting patterns by The Sexy Knitter, Kristen TenDyke, Jennifer Dassau, Liz Lovick, and Patricia Martin
- Articles by Anna Dalvi, Kate Atherley, MK Carroll, Gina Wilde, Miriam Felton and of course myself.
In my article I explain about my own personal history dealing with depression and how crochet helped me. I talk about how this led to my work in crochet blogging and eventually the writing of Crochet Saved My Life. I tell a bit about the book. I hope this article is something that a lot of the readers of this new magazine can relate to!
Knit Magazine Taking a Crochet Article
I am especially proud that the magazine featured my article since it’s a knitting-focused magazine and my article focuses on crochet. Of course, the benefits of crocheting that I talk about transcend just the craft of crochet. My book’s topic will appeal to knitters and other crafters of various kinds. Nevertheless, the title itself is related to crochet and it’s so great to see this title right on the front cover of this knitting magazine. I have seen other knitting magazines start to show more support of crochet as well. It’s so great to see! A post from Shannon says that there will continue to be crochet featured in future issues of the magazine.
