    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

    3 Sock Patterns I'm Loving Right Now
    3 Sock Patterns I'm Loving Right Now

    Happy Socktober, lovelies!! If you've been following us even for a little while, you've probably noticed that I absolutely love knitting socks.

    They're the perfect portable project, great for trying out new techniques or stitch patterns, and just so, so rewarding. There's just nothing like the feeling of opening your sock drawer on a cold fall morning, picking out the pair of hand-knit socks that calls to you, and walking around with cozy, warm toes all day long.

    I couldn't resist putting together a short, sweet list of 3 sock patterns I'm loving right now to kickstart this month – one makes for excellent TV-knitting, the second one is a bit more complex, and the last one is one that I've been wanting to knit for years!

    My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns
    My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns

    Hello lovelies,

    One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!

    I narrowed it down to my five favorite patterns (well, of right now) in color combinations that showcase the full rainbow of Bérénice colors. I've put a ton more patterns over on our Pinterest Board for pattern inspo for fluffy yarns if you're looking for more!

    Now, though, let's take a look at my top 5!

    Can a Silk Mohair Yarn be sustainable?
    Can a Silk Mohair Yarn be sustainable?

    Hi lovelies!

    I'm thrilled to be back in this space, and with something really, really exciting at that! For the past year, I've been on the hunt for a sustainably-produced fluffy yarn - we used to carry Knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair which is delightful, but also... everyone has it now? So I was looking for something that was a little out of the ordinary, but also responsibly sourced, and as it goes with anything that involves mohair and silk, that was really hard.

    Cue De Rerum Natura, who secretly have been working behind the scenes at exactly that yarn I'd been looking for: An "as sustainably as it can get" fluff yarn that works perfectly for a broad range of projects, from whispers of lace shawls to holding it together with more substantial yarns.
