The big news

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook or wherever, you may remember last week’s announcement about big news on the way…

And then I immediately had to declare I was not pregnant or getting married, because apparently those are the only big news worthy of such excitement, judging from the number of people texting and messaging me immediately afterward.

No, it’s better, because it involves yarn:

Yes, you read that right. I am taking on the editor position at Yarn Forward magazine, which now comes out ten times a year. Ten! (I just shuddered a little to think of it). I am currently getting up to speed on the flat plans for the issues-in-progress and preparing for the first issue that’s all me, editing-wise. (Gulp!)

Yarn Forward is UK-based but already available at some shops here in the US, and by subscription, too. We’re working on US distribution deals now, too.

Want to do patterns or articles for the magazine? Well, you know who to contact…
