Have you all seen the preview for Vogue Knitting Crochet? Its a special issue from Vogue Knitting all on fashion forward crochet. The last time they put out a special issue was 1994. It is still one of the ones I treasure in my library.
I am quite tickled about this issue. So much so, that I actually gushed to the editors about how excited I was for the issue at the last TNNA. To the point, that I know I sounded like a crazy person. But when a group wants to put out fashion forward crochet, and wants to take the time to really make it modern; I am so thrilled.

The article I wrote is all about reading crochet diagrams, no big surprise there. Naturally, I wanted to make sure that every pattern would have a diagram when needed; and volunteered my services to help in that effort. I could not be more thrilled at their excitement for including as many diagrams as possible. I have not seen the final print version; but I know that between print and online you will find all the diagrams you could ask for in a magazine.

I can not wait to get my copy and see it all put together. I am just so happy to be a part of the issue, and hope for a ton of success for them with the issue.
