Regency Alert! A new magazine to check out!
I found this at our local fabric store and at Barnes and Noble. The magazine has a few articles about Jane Austen, the Austen movies and some back ground information around fashion, knitting and just a great timeline of corresponding events during Jane's life time. The knits are all Austen/Regency inspired pieces sent in by different knitters and knit designers. Unfortunately, none of them are for the novice knitter. There is a sweet little reticule with a diamond pattern that I would love to try but I am not a good knitter nor a patient one. Give me thread and needles and I will embroider and handwork up a storm but knitting, alas is not my forte. What is exciting ladies and gents, is there must be an interest amongst Regency folks to produce a full, glossy colored magazine on such a specific topic. There is a call for entries for future magazines, so all you knitters and Austenphiles go for it!
