It’s March 1st and that means that new issues of some of my favorite free online fiber arts magazines have just come out, so I thought today would be a good day to give you a run down of some of the oldies but goodies and also the growing number of new zines on the scene.
MagKnits has their new March issue up and it’s packed with lots of new patterns. MagKnits has been around since February of 2004 and is now publishing monthly.
Spindilicity also has out a new issue, only their second, and their focus is on handspinning. They have lots of articles, projects and other info packed in the issue.
Spun Magazine notes on their site that a new issue is due out this month, but no sign of it yet. This is another relative newcomer to the scene and offers knitting patterns, articles and quite a few knitting book reviews.
Crochet Me is for all you crocheters out there! They released a 2006 mini issue with a valentines day theme which featured some nice patterns.
MenKnit Magazine is here to say that men are doing it too. Their second issue came out this winter and it has a great selection of patterns (and even a crossword puzzle!)
The AntiCraft is another newcomer and it’s for everyone who wants something completely different. There’s a sock pattern and a recipe, but that doesn’t come close to explaining it, you just have to go check it out!
Knitty is. . . well — you’ve already heard of Knitty, right?
