Hey hey,

There's a new magazine out in the UK, information here:

http://www.theartofcrochet.com/

It's one of those partworks things where each week you get some wool/a hook and end up with an afghan. There's other crochet patterns in the magazine too and it'll teach you a new stitch each week. I know 2.99 a week is a bit pricey and it'd probably be useless to all you experienced folk but I'm just starting out and I thought it might give me some incentive to keep up the learning.

Any else bought it/thinking of buying it? What do you think?

I bought the first one.
Wasn't massively impressed.
But, that was probably just because it mainly focuses on how to actually crochet, and the patterns are for things that I'd never make (I'm more into just making cute little things, rather than jumpers and blankets).
As a magazine for people trying to learn crochet, or just starting out, it looks pretty good though.

Although the 2.99 a week would put me off.
That's more than a big ball of wool costs around here, so I'd have to do some serious pros and cons before I subscribed or anything like that.

I thought the first one for 99p was great value, I like the patterns in it. But I don't know if I'd pay 2.99 a week for it though. But that's mainly because I make amigurumi and am quite confident with crochet, but if I was just starting out I think it would be great! Cheesy

I like the wool you get with it - nice and thick! I hate thin wool lol! Grin

Does it come with proper wool rather than acrylic? I was hoping it would come with different sized hooks too so I wouldn't need to buy one every time I want to start a new project (I know that'd work out cheaper but it's a hassle getting anywhere that sells them and I usually end up not bothering.

I'll have to have a think. It is quite pricey.
