Crochet Uncut Published!

After a few months of hard work, the first issue of Crochet Uncut was published on the 1st. There were a few problems, mostly with formatting, but they've all been fixed. I was also able to put up a PDF version of the magazine so it could be downloaded but you'll always find the online version on the site.

The next issue is due out on March 1, 2009 with the deadline for submissions on 1/31/09. That gives you folks three months to design, write, and get your patterns tested! Theme is patterns for warmer weather, but not the heat. Non-clothing items also accepted (no theme needed).

There will also be a special issue sometime soon, maybe between the Spring and Summer issues that will deal with weddings or babies - haven't made up my mind on that one yet. Keep an eye on the CU blog (linked in the main menu of the mag) or on the Crochet Uncut forum at Ravelry.com for more information as it becomes available.

Dar! I had no idea you were part of the CLF! I just got my copy of the book last week and am thrilled with it, it's everything I love about crochet and want crochet to be. I'm tired of crochet being reigned over by Annie's Attic's tack-o-rama patterns that are best left at the church bazaar, and magazines with editors whose pictures include giant 80's hair and shoulder pads in their boxy crocheted sweaters.

Thanks for being a follower of my blog, as silly as it often is, and mostly just for me and sometimes for my friends (case in point, the cow-related-events in SK summer 2007). And I look forward to more issues of Crochet Uncut! Great job!

Thanks for the kind words. It's a lot of work but totally worth it!
