Featured In SIMPLY CROCHET MAGAZINE

Back in October I was approached by journalist Judy Darley who had seen my Halloween Webs and would like to do a feature article on my crochet for the new SIMPLY CROCHET MAGAZINE due to be released this January.

I was first and foremost excited about the interview and also delighted to hear that another crochet magazine was to hit the shelves. Crochet is sometimes treated like the poor cousin of knitting by the print media although I have to say that is very much changing, particularly now that the models on the catwalks are draped in creative crochet around the globe – the awareness of crochet is definitely heightened.

Anyway, I live out in the sticks of Ireland and had a hard time laying hands on a copy of the first issue of the SIMPLY CROCHET MAGAZINE and only found it when I was passing through London visiting my sister. The first issue was bright and cheerful with what I saw as an emphasis on targeting the beginner crochet market. There was nice photography in it and fun projects. I liked the feel of the magazine, the light-hearted approach to crochet and having a background in printing I really appreciate the quality of the paper the magazine is actually printed on. Lovely detail! And the hook gauge in the second issue; what a hoot…

I was to be featured in the second issue and I only laid hands on it during this week just gone by and I’m chuffed with the result. Judy has done a great job on making sense of my unstructured meandering answers.

It is always nice to be recognized by ones peers and I hope you enjoy the article and the magazine, I know I do!

Crochet world domination, I’m telling you! 😉
