I’ve got another exciting magazine feature to share with you all! Issue 35 of “Knit Now" magazine based in the UK comes with an exclusive special edition magazine called "Quick & Easy Crochet”! This bumper issue contains many free patterns and is a great 2 for 1 deal, particularly if you are both a knitter and crocheter :)
If you look at the cover of “Quick & Easy Crochet”, you’ll spot the amigurumi Pony that I designed and blogged about for Chinese New Year!
I am delighted and honoured to have such a beautiful spread in the magazine! They interviewed me and asked questions such as what it is I love about amigurumi specifically and the biggest lesson I’ve learned about crochet since getting back into it. This spread includes pictures of Dragon, Snuggles, the Knotted Headband, Sweetheart Bunny and Pony. Along the right hand side of the feature, you’ll see a little section called “How to perfect kawaii style" in which I give some tips about eyes and nose placement!
The following pages include my Pony Pattern! Hopefully some more people will be inspired to begin their amigurumi and crocheting journeys by seeing my pony pattern in this magazine :)
Thank you to Hugh for interviewing and featuring me in “Quick & Easy Crochet”! I am so thankful for each and every magazine feature that I get and I see each one as another opportunity to share my love of crochet and amigurumi with new people. You can purchase the digital copy of “Knit Now 35" HERE and you will also receive the digital copy of “Quick & Easy Crochet" (I’m told the supplement starts after the last page of the main magazine). You can also find the magazine at Barnes & Noble stores in the US. I think it’s wonderful how knitters are being introduced to the world of crochet through this supplement, and I’m so happy that I could be a part of it!
I’m so happy that I’ve been able to share other areas of my life on this blog besides crocheting, such as our travel adventures and my pregnancy and nursing style! To find out a little bit more about my style and life as a new mama, check out my feature as a “Style Mom" on Natalie Zee Drieu’s “Coquette Maman" HERE! Thanks for the lovely feature, Natalie :)
I have been loving my new crochet hook case that I picked up in Tokyo! It’s the perfect size with vibrant colours and a zipper that slides like a dream ;) I picked it up at Tokyu Hands in Shibuya, and it’s by a company called United Bees Japan.
I would also be delighted if you checked out this lovely interview and feature of me by Sunny of Oh So Sunny HERE. Her post made me smile from ear to ear and I felt so humbled and blessed to have such loyal and kind readers. Sunny hails from Valencia, Spain where she is part of a group called “Knit and Fun” that promotes crafty living. They organize free weekly gatherings in different cozy cafes in Valencia where crafty people can gather to chat and exchange knowledge while enjoying drinks and cupcakes! They also organize workshops with local artists to promote various crafts such as creative sewing, amigurumi, ceramics, and more.
I’ve always wanted to visit Spain, and Sunny graciously offered to give us an amazing tour of her city should we ever visit! What “Knit and Fun” is doing sounds absolutely wonderful, and I hope I can join them someday! Once again, please check out my feature HERE (there is also English translation for the non-Spanish speakers!). Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words and support, Sunny!
The UK’s Shopaholic recently featured me in their “Editor’s Pick: Unforgettable Blogs”! Check out my interview here to learn a little bit more about me (I’m #4). Thanks for the feature, Shopaholic, and thank you to everyone out there who has been supporting me on this crocheting and blogging journey!
