Yarn* Magazine #9

*an Australian knitting magazine at a reasonable price

I bought my copy at Borders today - this the first issue under the new ownership and I like it. Issue #9 is about silk - a fibre I've never knit with and possibly never will, but the articles are interesting.

I particularly enjoyed the article about buying yarn locally [silk, of course, isn't produced locally - the 'buy local' article was strategically placed before the articles about silk]. Did you know that it's possible to buy Australian wool from Canada which had first been processed in Italy!! Where's the logic in that?

I always read craft magazines from front to back [including all the advertising] so I haven't thumbed through the magazine to look for the patterns, I don't even know if there are any - just for you I'll take a sneak peak: yep, there they are - looking good, but I can't tell you what they are, you'll have to look for the magazine and decide for yourself! As for me, I buy for the articles not the patterns, and I'm finding it a top read!


  1. I think I'm getting this issue for Easter tomorrow! I hope so! It's nice to read local ads and so forth.

    Happy Easter!

  2. That looks like a great issue (and is that some of the recycled sari silk I see on the cover?)! I wonder if it ever shows up stateside?
