Happy almost spring y'all! And what a way to celebrate with a fresh new "Green" issue of Petite Purls. Oh my goodness, talk about cuteness in gargantuan proportions!! Have you seen the spring 2010 issue of the online magazine Petite Purls? There are well over EIGHTEEN patterns/howtos in this issue, if you count the tutorials and instructions in the features area as well! One would be hardpressed to choose a favorite. And talk about "mult-media", suffice it to say that I am in multi-crafting heaven. Knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, weaving....LOVE it!!
As for the "green" aspect of the projects, this issue encompasses a myriad of techniques & materials. Some of the yarns are processed from sustainable items such as corn. Wow, can you imagine? I will never look at an ear of corn in the same way. And of course a baby friendly favorite, cotton, organically grown of course. And recycled cotton yarn as well. Then there are the yarns dyed with safe and fun Kool-aid, a personal favorite.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the editors; Allegra Wermuth, Brandy Fortune & Joan Beebe. My goodness what an accomplished group of ladies, each talented designers in their own right. It was such a pleasure and honor to work with them. They work so hard behind the scenes to bring about the wonderfully slick e-zine that is Petite Purls. Thank you ladies!!
