Just in case anyone else has been checking obsessively to see when we can get our hands on some new (re: FREE) patterns, I just took an Internet break from the Grammys and discovered that Spunmag is live.

Go check it out for yourself:

thanks yarnia

the only thing i'd suggest it to get bigger pics. in a couple of them (victorian choker, restraints, and stud muffin) you can't really see them that well. the pics are too dark. sorry that i'm already picking on it.

but i love the articles in the beginning.

I totally agree about the pics.

But this is just a mini-issue. I'm sure they'll work out all the kinks with the next one.

(on a side not to people making the restraints- objects that draw through in a loop form can -and will- cut off the circulation in the limb if its pulled tight, especially when you secure the other ends to an object.  make sure you keep a pair of scissors or a knife nearby. or find a way that it wont pull tight (buttons maybe?).  also thin objects, especially those that pull tight, create painful preasure points, especially to wrists, so make sure its wide enough that if it gets pulled tight it doesnt dig into the skin)  </rant.  sorry Smiley>

but yea the articles are really cool.

Hey,
Thanks for all the the goodness. The photos - well, the photo shoot on Friday didn't work out and we scrambled together on Sunday. I think that we will dfinitely take your comments to heart.
Re: restraints. I made a pair and would have added the caveat except that there is no reason. They are in no way tight. Your hand can slip right out. More of a show item than for people who "play" all the time.

agreed!
but they also were inflammatory enough that a few people unsubscribed to our lists because of that and IMHO. oh well
that said, we are going to put up larger photos somewhere.

Oh, that's too bad.  I kind of understand, though -  I was over at my sister's house when I read Spun, and IMHO kind of took me by surprise.  I finished reading it at home, 'cause it didn't seem to be appropriate while my nephew and his friends were running in and out of the house.  He's had the birds and the bees talk but I don't think my sister wants to have to discuss oral sex with him ever yet.  And then I'd have to tell my sister that it was because I was reading...a "knitting lifestyle" magazine.  Maybe some people unsubbed because they check their email at work?

I read it at work, and I didn't find anything too inflammatory about it. I actually really liked the articles, especially the one about tofu love. I am in a torrid romance with tofu myself, and the mole recipe looks really good. Keep up the good work Spunmag. I wish I had that idea myself! I had a webzine that was arts-related, and I was thinking of changing it to a knit blog, but I didn't have enough presence of mind to combine the two. It's a fab idea.

Thanks, Abinka!  I think it's a great idea too.  Mind you, I didn't come up with it, but I'll take a bow anyways Wink

btw, we're already working away at the first full issue (it'll launch early April) so be on the lookout for lots of the changes you've suggested!  Keep the feedback coming.
