Exchanging Fire Stitch Markers Featured in Knitscene Accessories 2014!

I’m really excited because I have some super cool news to share with you – Exchanging Fire’s Red Riding Hood stitch markers were featured in this year’s special Knitscene Accessories 2014 magazine, which hits stands June 3!

The editors contacted me this winter about the Red Riding Hood stitch markers, which I love because they have a beautiful wolf’s head charm on them paired with reclaimed red jade beads. They invoke the dark and moody feeling that the original fairy tale conveyed. So I sent them in, and have been waiting and waiting to see when they might appear in print. And voila! Here is a sneak peek of the page they are featured on, right beside those awesome digital row counters I also have at Exchanging Fire:

The Knitscene Accessories issue only comes out once and year and is always jam-packed with the latest goodies and cutest easy-to-knit patterns. Some of the cowls and scarves this year are to-die-for elegant with a fabulous Art Nouveau style. The whole theme is Fairy Tales, so you should totally check it out.

Check me out in The Knitter!

I was stalking The Knitter, a UK knitting magazine, religiously this summer. The editor, Juliet Bernard, had asked if she could feature my pattern, the Mini Mania Scarf, in one of her stashbusting blog posts. I was thrilled, of course, and started watching like mad for it. Well wouldn’t you know it, right after I gave up the hunt she posted about my pattern! It was last month, but her stashbusting tips for all of the fabulous ways you can use up yarn are totally still relevant. Plus, hey look, there I am!

But there’s more! The Knitter (hard copy side) contacted me again because they are doing a larger spread about stashbusting in their next issue, and wanted to know if they could reprint my pattern photo there as well! I think that if the pattern is being featured (or, as the case may be, a teeny picture in the corner) it should be the most current issue, issue 36, which went on sale Sept. 5 in the UK. If any of my European readers have found it, I’d love to have a scan of the page or a copy of the magazine. Either way, keep your eyes peeled for me, please!

UPDATE: I wrote to one of the editors who initially contacted me to ask where my picture was featured, and she was so kind as to give me a digital copy of the page that my scarf was on. Yey! They had originally told me that the reason they were interested in featuring my scarf was because a reader wrote them a letter talking about it. So they actually wrote about my scarf in a response to the reader, whose letter they published in a section of the magazine called “In the Loop”. Very exciting!

In other news, I’ve joined Craftsy and I’m loving it – it’s a great complementary site to Ravelry because it offers me a chance to share my non-knitting related stuff (ok, that’s like, one sewing project, but still) and it offers great online classes and stuff like that. What fun!
