Free Magazines

by Kelly

While looking for quick, small things to crochet, I stumbled across a free site called MagazineDown.Com. And look what I found there-

Ha-Na's small things of crochet
found here
Interweave Crochet Winter 2011
Interweave Crochet

These were completely free and there are many other magazines, newspapers and catalogs on crochet and other topics. Many of them are in other languages including what appears to be a French fashion magazine. Very interesting stuff.

Regretsy LOL

I wanted to do a little reading over the Christmas break and found a hilarious book at the library

Regretsy, by April Winchell will keep you in stitches! April runs a snarky blog called, that pulls items from Etsy that are well...interesting. It takes a special item to meet Rachel's criteria - a badly knit item won't do it. There needs to be that extra special something that takes an item to a new level of horror in order to make her list. The book is divided into various catergories (jewelry, home decor, pet humiliation) and then shows actual Etsy listings along with April's comments. I read the entire book in under an hour and laughed out loud through a number items. It's a don't miss on my 2012 list.

Crafty Resolutions

Happy New Year to all! It's that time of year again when we resolve to fix all those nagging things that we dislike about ourselves. It seems appropriate that we should include our favorite hobbies in that list as well. So for 2012, my crafty resolutions are:

1) Buy more yarn

2) Be a better finisher than a starter
3) Buy more yarn
4) Make more time for crocheting
5) Learn to knit
6) List more on Etsy
7) Buy a lot more yarn

How about you?
