Changes To Making Stories

Dear lovely Making Stories community.

We hope you have a beautiful March so far and are as excited as we are about the upcoming launch of Issue 1 of our new magazine! Before we dive into all things magazine, we’d love to take a minute to talk about some recent changes to the ownership and team structure of Making Stories. We’re dedicated to transparency, and we feel that walking the talk is important, so we want to share a couple of things with you.

Your Makes!

Today, I wanted to show off and celebrate some of the lovely projects that have come off your needles recently. We love seeing how you put your own creative stamp on our patterns! This is just the tip of an extremely talented iceberg and I'll be sharing many more in the future.

It’s so easy at this time of year to get caught up in the more commercial side of the holidays and it’s important to embrace those little traditions that make Christmas so special and that we continue year after year. To get us in the mood I asked the Making Stories team if they would like to share their favourite Christmas traditions with us.

Thought's On Yarn Shopping

Knitting season is in full swing and along with planning which patterns we’d like to work on, we’re all having all sorts of fun choosing our yarn! Whether you’re online shopping or visiting your LYS it’s one of the most exciting parts of the project. For today’s post, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some more sustainable approaches to yarn shopping to make that new pattern feel a little more accessible!
