Knitting Magazine – December 2019
Baby, it’s cold outside. Not to mention wet, windy, and generally unpleasant. Can you guess what I’m planning to do? Oh yes, I’m cocooning. I’m battening down the hatches, climbing on to my sofa, wrapping blankets around me and settling in with my knitting to wait for spring. This is the plan: several projects within reach in case I tire of one, a cup of tea at my left hand, a bit of dark chocolate or a biscuit in case I get peckish, and I may or may not dabble in a bit of TV. Now doesn’t that sound perfect?
This month ‘s knits are all about getting cosy this winter, wrapping up and either lounging comfortably at home or striding out through bright, frosty streets and field snugly enveloped in jumpers, shawls and scarves. Try super-soft Caroline by Pat Menchini, which has a lovely nipped-in waist that will really show off a whole range of body shapes; simply cosy Elanor shrug by Jo Allport is a super-chunky quick knit to whip up if you’re feeling chilly; and Bronagh Miskelly’s Cable Check Cardigan is covered m gorgeously warm cables for those cold winter days.
If all that doesn’t sound dynamic enough, we’ve got some truly inspiring women in our pages this month whose businesses were born out of a love of knitting and making, and whose enthusiasm and drive shine out in their work- Meet Sarah Shepherd, the brilliant costume and knitting designer whose glorious Ice Queen shawl is this edition’s cover star. Sara Prior is a busy mum who turned to giant yarn for a quick crafty fix — and ended up making a business of it- Then there’s Milli Abrams, the owner of Richmond boutique Tribe Yarns, who moved from one shop to another overnight without missing a single hour of business. So whether you’re feeling full of energy or ready for a comfy sit down and knit, I hope you will find something in this issue for you — and from me and all the team at Knitting I wish you a happy, cosy and woolly Christmas.
Are you indecisive about going digital? Don’t you have enough reasons to be persuaded? Whether you like it or not, the world is turning digital. Nowadays, it isn’t easy to envision a single day without digital connectivity. We all rely on our mobile gadgets in every domain, whether health, travel, pleasure, or work.
Meanwhile, the publishing sector is no different from any other. Realizing that digital is no longer a passing novelty, more publications are becoming digital or incorporating digital material into their business plans, such as digital magazines or PDF magazines.
Now you’ve become familiar with the importance of going digital, let’s move forward to help you decide further about whether you should download online magazines.
Easy To Access
The fact that we spend so much of our time online is why digital publications are chosen. Our reading habits include numerous usage of internet information at all hours of the day and night. Digital publications make it easier for us to keep our favorite pieces, share them, form communities, and discuss them online.
Purchasing, reading, and downloading online magazines is, without question, a quick and simple process. From the conveniences of our own homes, we may instantaneously purchase the digital edition of our choosing. It may be viewed and read at any time and location, such as when traveling, during a lunch break, or while waiting in line at a coffee shop. Rather than dealing with multiple books, you can obtain information instantly at your fingertips.
A digital magazine will be available worldwide once it is released. By sharing the story and thoughts, an author can reach a global audience in no time. Geographical boundaries are thus no longer an impediment. Furthermore, readers may share digital magazines with friends and family, increasing the publication’s user base.
A digital publication has an indefinite lifespan and stays unchanged even after years of use. Printed periodicals, on the other hand, degrade with each passing year. There is also the possibility of the print becoming lighter, the paper quality deteriorating, and other such difficulties.
Digital magazines give a better user experience than printed editions since they are more engaging. In addition to highly engaging photos, music, and video, one may peak viewers’ attention by displaying captivating 360-degree views, pop-ups, weblinks, and various other interactive components.
An author can increase user engagement by enabling two-way communication via push notifications and feedback forms.
A PDF reader is required.
To view electronic magazines and other digital periodicals, you’ll need a pdf reader software package. You may use it to read and arrange digital publications in a more efficient and orderly manner.
Installing the program first is the best approach to utilizing a pdf reader. It’s as simple as opening the pdf reader after the installation is complete. If you have a busy schedule and don’t want to connect to the internet whenever you want to view a pdf, you may also use a pdf reader offline.
