ReadyMade

This is a crochet site, right? I have to tell you, if you don't already know, that there is a wonderful, fabulous magazine out there that doesn't necessarily fall under the "crochet" tag, but you might find worthwhile anyway. It's called ReadyMade and it freakin' ROCKS. I eagerly anticipate it's arrival every other month. It is ruled by Shoshana Berger and its audience is largely the younger DIY crowd. Every issue is filled with amazing ideas, with a penchant for doing things on the cheap and helping you recycle whenever you can.

I seriously think this should be required reading for anyone interested in style and design, the environment, and crafting in general. It is an amazing magazine and I think the Editrix should be canonized. We use too much new crap, throw out too much usable stuff, and don't think enough about making what we have better.

There are often articles that are fiber-related, but anyone interested in looking at stuff in a completely different way, please seek them out. And no, I don't have any personal interest in their publication other than being in awe of them.
