Please, someone tell me that CrochetMe is still alive...  It's been the same issue for months and the last I heard they were putting up the new version of the magaine in June.  Is Kim Werker ok?  Does anyone know what's up?

Wow, it did say June didn't it?
Haven't there been new blog posts, though? Maybe the update is just taking longer than they thought.

YO! Need a bag full of novelty eyelash yarn in various and wonderful colors? Swap with me! PM for details and such.

It looks like they are working on a new version of the site which could be causing the delay, Also keep in mind that the crochetme  book is coming out soon so that has probably been delaying it as well.
but you can call me Liz.

I was wondering the same, they're still on the Spring issue... kinda cool that there will be a book though Smiley

Kim is also the new editor of Interweave Crochet. I'm sure that uses a lot of her time up also. I'm eager to see the next issue of crochet me. Hopefully it comes soon.

Thanks for the blog tip...  I thought I had been reading the right blog, but I had been reading Kim's blog and not CrochetMe's.  Kim did post a preview of the new CrochetMe site last month and it looks like it's going to be AWESOME! I am so excited.  I can't believe she is managing all of this: an incredible magazine, a revolutionary webzine, books, blogs, a life... Bravo Kim, bravo.

Out of curiosity I checked today, and the new CrochetMe Beta is up!

 Shocked OH WOW! Have they changed.  I actually like the new site.  I felt as if before it was hard to find a specific pattern or information I was looking for.  I like that they also have "Highly Rated Patterns"

I know that back when the Spring issue was due out there were problems with their server or something.  I think that they just run a little bit behind schedule.
