    Hello friends! Can you believe it is nearly time to release a new issue of our magazine? Issue 7 is coming on March 24, and we have the print copies patiently waiting in the Wool Cave to be packaged up and shipped out to their new homes!

    The packaging is actually going to begin very soon, as copies get shipped out early to our subscription customers. This is just one of the perks that come with being a Making Stories subscriber, so we thought it would be a good time to do a little deep-dive into all the benefits you get right here on the blog, but first of all, let's see how our Annual Subscriptions work!

    • Your first issue: You choose which issue you'd like to start your subscription with.
    • First dibs for subscribers: You automatically get your copy sent to you a couple of weeks before the official release date - first dibs for subscribers!
    • Pausing your subscription: Should you not like a particular issue, you can pause your subscription for that issue.
    • Automatic renewal & anytime cancellation: Every year, your subscription renews automatically - but you can also cancel at any point in time, should you wish to do so.

    Easy-peasy, right? No more working out if you are subscribed to the next issue or worrying about having to renew, you can sit back and wait for the (early!) delivery of your copy. And if that wasn't enough, subscribing also comes with a bunch of other benefits.

    You get a discount

    When you subscribe to Making Stories Magazine, it comes at a 15% discount compared to the individual copy prices!

    Your complimentary copy of Head, Hands & Toes

    With your subscription, you automatically receive a thank you gift of our e-book Head, Hands & Toes straight to your inbox at the time of purchase. It contains three of our popular patterns; Berlin Winter Hat, Winterfold Mittens and Near & Far Socks. Check out the patterns below!


    Digital Downloads 

    Your purchase of the print subscription automatically includes a digital version too! You'll get an email with a download link immediately after purchase. 

    You can also add your digital copy to your Ravelry library by entering the download code printed on the first page of the magazine. You can also access your digital downloads at any time on our website as they are also stored in the 'My Library' section in your customer account.

    New For Issue 7!

    For the release of Issue 7, we are also launching the sale of a selection of the yarns that are featured in this issue, along with some special kits we are putting together for some of the patterns. Subscribers will get early access to the sale of these yarns and kits to give them the option of having their order shipped out with their copy of Issue 7! So when your magazine arrives, you will have everything you need to cast on straight away!

    Good To Know...

    Just in case you didn't already know, here are some of the reasons we think Making Stories is pretty special:

    • 136 completely ad-free pages
    • Printed on 100% recycled paper (Blue Angel certificate) with Umweltdruck Berlin, a printer local to us
    • Shipped out from our warehouse in Berlin with Deutsche Post or DHL

    Hi lovelies! I kind of completely dropped the ball on putting FO posts out there, but as you all very kindly let me know through our "what do you want to read on the blog" survey, you actually really like them, so we have some catching up to do!

    We're starting with two FOs that have actually quite recently only been finished – if by recently we mean the end of 2023. They're both from Issue 10, and were both a delight to knit!

    My Favorite 3 Patterns for Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle
    My Favorite 3 Patterns for Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle

    February 06, 2024 3 min read

    Hi lovelies! I adore a good color-changing yarn, so imagine my excitement when I found a non-superwash, 100% wool version (not so easy to come by)! Schoppelwolle's Zauberwolle comes in at 250 m / 273 yds per 100 g and knits up beautifully to a fingering-weight, sport-weight and DK gauge.

    It's fabulous on its own, and great combined with neutral solids! My top picks for yarns to go with Zauberwolle are BC Garn Semilla Melange, De Rerum Natura Ulysse and Holst Garn Supersoft. All three have a broad color range, so finding a matching or contrasting solid to your chosen color-changing yarn should be a breeze!
