Hi there, just a quick plea to all my fellow bloggers out there. I did an edit on my previous post, but lots of you who have already popped by may not have seen it.

Can anyone out there help me obtain the first edition of the new magazine The Art of Crochet? I have scoured every shop and supermarket in my local area, and phoned several stores further afield trying to obtain a copy of this elusive mag. Most of them claim that they haven't received supplies of it at all.

I don't know if the weather has had any bearing on matters, but it seems that it has passed Kent by altogether!

I would be very grateful if anyone can help me. Maybe you have a copy that you don't want anymore or you know a little newsagents with a few copies remaining. I am not bothered about the free gifts necessarily, I would just like the details of that fab blanket that is featured in the advert and the beanie hat pattern. I will of course reimburse all the costs involved.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that one of you wonderful ladies may be able to help me in my quest. Thank you.

Andi's English Attic came to rescue earlier on her blog, I hope she doesn't mind me quoting - If any of you want this first issue and haven't been able to find it, the company web site is: http://www.theartofcrochet.com/

She ordered directly from them.

Glad to hear you are all set... Isn't it a pissier when you can't find just what you want.

Went searching for it and couldn't find it here in the US, but found it on ebay UK. Maybe you be able to get it that way. Good Luck! I know how it is when we want something.

Greetings from the US

I have one here - I bought it but have decided not to go ahead and buy further copies.

If you still need one leave a message on my blog and I'll get it sent to you.
