- Claudia H, 2010-03-03 08:16:17

I am so glad I found this magazine. The recipes are awesome and the patterns look really great. I just finished up reading the article on Alexander McQueen. It was a lovely tribute to an amazing designer. Thank you.

I'm so glad to see Tension up and running... I've been eyeing the Centrifugal pattern and need to go find the right yarn to make that. :-)
- CelticMommy, 2010-03-03 12:49:37

Awesome prizes and awesome online magazine! I'm glad I found it!!
- Shawn Y, 2010-03-02 10:59:22

I enjoyed the article Q & A: Rosemary Hill. She is an interesting gal and had some great pointers. I'm not really into free form per se but the comments concerning the silk & pearls bracelet intrigues me that she enables the reader to copy and create at the same time.
- Jacqueline S, 2010-03-02 07:53:13

Wow great giveaway! I love the howstooth skirt. I am so happy crochet is right up there in the forefront of fashion.
- Denise B631, 2010-03-02 06:29:52

Thank you for this nice giveaways. I would be really happy to pay for international shipping. Patmom
- Patrizia M, 2010-03-02 06:01:16

Fantastic I love Love Love new crochet sites and everything crochet! Bravo Im excited to join in on the fun!
- sherri m, 2010-03-02 01:17:20

This reminds me of Twist Collective except of course the patterns are for crochet items. I really like the recipe idea.
- Jackie P, 2010-03-01 09:36:57

That houndstooth skirt is worth getting back on the treadmill or the stairclimber for years at a time -- It's like the fashion version of a mullet: Business on top (black jacket), party down below (the skirt)!
- Rosiland J, 2010-03-01 09:00:57

When I read the Baked Caramel Apples recipe/article, I could almost smell it cooking in my kitchen. I will most definitely be trying the recipe, if for no other reason than to have a good excuse to buy some vodka. Hmm... what to do with the rest of the vodka after using only 4 tablespoons of it? It may be difficult to choose between drinking it or making more baked apples!
- Rebecca H, 2010-03-01 06:44:45

Oh what a great giveaway!!!!If i win i will knit and crochet so many new projects..Thanks.
- Seema S, 2010-03-01 04:36:53

- Casey C, 2010-03-01 02:23:40

I made the recipe for Cocoa Coffee Chili in your article. It is to die for! The best chili I have ever tasted! Mary Ann
- Mary Ann H, 2010-03-01 01:30:37

- Sheri H, 2010-03-01 12:26:48

The magazine is inspiring with all the additional information other than stitching. A great way to spend an afternoon.
- Diana L, 2010-03-01 12:23:27

Hello, my name is Sarah Crittenden and I am a yarnaholic. Right now I am trying to poke mye eyes back into my head and wipe the drool from my chin after looking at those fabulous prizes!
- sarah c, 2010-02-26 08:11:03

Love this magazine! Thanks for the inspiration!
- Diane G, 2010-02-18 08:10:08

Helena C - Twig will be available in about 2 weeks.
- Josi M, 2010-02-18 12:13:07

I love the idea of what you're doing, the ambition that's behind it, and I dream of contributing with my own patterns one day. You do make it sound accessible! However, where are the patterns that keep cropping up in Ravelry? For example, Twig?
- Helena C, 2010-02-18 11:52:47

Karen C. - I keep a knit kit in my purse all the time. I added a metal yarn needle, sewing needle, and cardboard of sewing thread to the little box on the back of the kit, where the scissors and stitch markers are stored. I love having the scissors ready to go when I need to cut some yarn.
- Julie H, 2010-02-17 04:37:18

I like that you include recipes & things other than knitting. It sets you apart from the other online knitting mags.
- Lisa D, 2010-02-14 05:58:46

Wow. That knit kit thing is maybe the coolest thing ever (even though I crochet! The only thing I couldn't use are the point protectors.) Wow.
- Karen C, 2010-02-13 08:39:20

Amazing prizes! Thank you for including non-US readers in the contest.
- Kim T, 2010-02-12 11:40:32

This is pretty rockin! That hat is awesome too.
- Larissa B, 2010-02-10 06:37:17

Wow, I really like what I see so far! I think I may have to buy that centrifuge pattern. (Though I wish hats looked better on me - anyone else always end up giving away the stuff you make??) Wow. Nice gift giveaways! I hope this continues to be successful. Crochet is cool. Everything seems to be for knits.
- Karen C, 2010-02-06 09:55:09

Great to see the new issue & format and looking forward to more! Will you be sending out reminders when new articles/patterns are up?
- Betsey S, 2010-02-05 05:59:29
