I’ve been on tenterhooks all week waiting for the February 2018 issue of Knitting Magazine to come out. The Geek Chic Issue is jam packed with articles and patterns that talk about the fandoms and the things we get geeky over. For me that’s Science Fiction and Fantasy, Knitting, Computers, Books and Games. Nearly all of which feature here, and guess what.
So do we!
There’s a great profile on Third Vault Yarns, as well as a knitting pattern in our And You’ll Drop Your Weapon colourway, a yarn inspired by Rey and originally featured in the February 2017 YarniTea club. You can also find a very Whovian design on the next page, that I was inspired by the Steampunk style Time Vortex to design. Aside from those two there are a number of other fantastic patterns that I can’t wait to knit, so I would recommend you picking up a copy.
If you’re just looking for a geeky yarn fix then don’t worry, we’ve got that for you and more with “And You’ll Drop Your Weapon,” “Kill It If You Have To” and a bunch of other colourways, including Gamora and Cosmic Turtle both for the first time available outside the Goblet of Fandom clubs they started in.
Speaking of clubs, there are just four days left to get your place on the Vaulter’s Book Club for this quarter. The book for this month is “The Long Way To a Small, Angry Planet” by Becky Chambers, with a knitting pattern designed by Diane Ugo. You get some squishy themed yarn, a specially designed knitting pattern, a little extra and a yummy sweet treat. So go sign up via the Google form or on the website.
