May we please introduce…craft.girl!
Kit Kinseth and I cooked up an idea last summer that actually became a thing, a real thing, a magazine thing. What started as a conversation at a cookout, as a “wouldn’t-it-be-cool-if?” kind of thing, has turned into a magazine we are so incredibly excited to share with you.
We noticed Interweave needed more beginner content in our magazine repertoire and wanted to create something new to help introduce people to the fantastic world of crafting. Our new magazine, craft.girl, is filled with a myriad of projects, from knitting and crocheting, to embroidery and cross-stitch, to jewelry and paper crafts, and more.
If you’re not sure what you like, this is the perfect place to start. All of the projects were designed as weekend undertakings, nothing takes too much time and nothing is too complex. You also don’t need to buy anything super expensive to get started, which is ideal if you aren’t sure whether you’ll like a thing or not!
This was a team effort from start to finish, and wouldn’t have happened without the help and encouragement of our awesome coworkers, families, and friends. I’m sorry you’ve all had to listen to us go on and on about this, but we thank you for all of your amazing contributions!
We have some fantastic kits that will be launching in September but you can buy the digital magazine today. The print version is also available for pre-order here. Please check back here on Knitting Daily and on the other Interweave community pages for closer looks at some of the projects in this issue. In the mean time, check out some of the projects below!
