A Good Day for Yarn

Today I bought my first crochet magazines ever. That’s right, you read that correctly! My first crochet magazines EVER! I grabbed the only two crochet magazines on the newsagency shelf, stuffed down in a bottom corner below all the knitting, scrapbooking and patchwork offerings.

So what did I grab? Simply Crochet Hooked on Handmade issue #32 and Amigurumi Collection (a special collection of all things cute and amigurumi also by Simply Crochet). magsSimply Crochet website    Simply Crochet Facebook

Now, I’m not new to crochet toys. I have my own style and unique ideas but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate and admire the work of others. The cuteness in the Amigurumi Collection almost makes one go into meltdown! So…much…cuteness!! This book would be a great resource for a beginner. Not only does it have cute little projects but it includes crochet basics, stitches and conversions. It’s well laid out and has lovely colourful photos. It really is just a pleasure to stroll through.

My copy of Simply Crochet came with a free kit of yarn and stitch markers to make a special little bracelet. Again, plenty of interesting things to read, beautiful patterns with wonderful photos all laid out in a lovely magazine. I may be venturing out for the next issue…

Add to that my afternoon trip to my local op shop where I scored a couple of bags of yarnie goodness for a bargain price and it’s been an all round great day in my crochet, yarnie world!

It really is the simple things in life isn’t it!

      • It starts with one or two mags and then it snowballs into others because you see something on the cover you like or you love the free gift. Some are really cute and useful like the fox shaped needle gauge I picked up the other month. I guess my addiction is more advanced. I am in the process of archiving and indexing mine so I can find anything quickly and easily. I’m also scanning the patterns etc in them so that I have a thumbnail gallery on my laptop. Then I can cruise for inspiration and lay my hands straight on the magazine and pattern when inspiration hits. Maybe obsession is a better term for what I have rather than addiction ♡
