Are you a knitting magazine collector like me? I have so many mags on my iPad, I am pretty sure that they outnumber my books at this point. Well, I’m getting ready to add one more to my repository – the premiere edition of the new Noro Magazine! Sarah E. White at about.com gives her review of the new Fall 2012 debut issue after the jump.
Lots of knitters are in love with Noro, the colorful Japanese yarn that was eco-friendly before it was all the rage that makes yarn that feels handcrafted and really does carry the personal touch of the man behind the yarn brand, Eisaku Noro. There have been many books written about the yarn, and now the publishing company that brings us Vogue Knitting has launched a Noro magazine, whose first issue recently hit the stands.
The magazine is a riot of color, naturally, and has lots of inspiration for a pretty good value — 33 patterns and a couple of articles for $7.99 ($8.99 in Canada). There are hats, sweaters, tops, throws, projects for men (none for kids, though!), home accessories and felting projects.
