They love us in Australia!

We were delighted to learn that Romancing the Yarn was mentioned as one of the “Websites and Blogs We Love” in the May issue of the Australian-based magazine Get Creative. We were in very impressive company which, of course, included The Wendy. What an honor!

GC comments that “Knitters seem addicted to blogging, possibly because the format allows for highly individualistic expression—just like the creative crafts themselves.” Hmmm. Or maybe we knitters just have addictive personalities.

Of course we were curious to find out more about a publication with such excellent taste in blogs and discovered that Get Creative has excellent taste in many other areas. It’s a gorgeous, glossy, colorful periodical with articles on all kinds of crafts.

Here’s what GC says about their mission:

Everything we produce is about encouraging and inspiring all of us to have a go at new things, expressing ourselves creatively and spending time with our family and friends. In this modern world it is easy to lose sight of the simple, enjoyable activities that bring colour and warmth to our lives and the lives of others.
The great thing about craft activities, though, is that nothing has to be perfect. The fun is in having a go.

I love the Australian flavor of their description!

Check out GC’s website at It has fabulous photos of projects from past issues of the magazine. You’ll be salivating to “have a go” at all of them!

(Hi, Wendy!) How did you find this, Nancy? It's too cool for words.

Barbara, the magazine's editor Jacqui left a comment on one of our blog posts last month, telling us about the article. Get Creative really is a stunning magazine; there were at least three projects on the website I would love to try.

Hi guys
I'm thrilled to see your kind comments about our widdle mag on this blog. Maybe you've got some tips on fabbo USA crafters we should be interviewing or approaching for projects. We're working hard to promote the great creative work women (and men) are doing around the world. And, of course, as a fellow writer I am completely taken with the idea of you guys, in particular, coming together to knit, blog and get books published along the way. Phew! And, as for some imaginary travels in Paris - I'm going to sit back and drink a pastis at the Buddha Bar in rue Boissy d’Anglas right now ... in my pyjamas!Jacquie Byron, editor, Get Creative
