We feel honored to be featured in the first issue of Eigenwerk, an online craft blog/magazine based out of Germany. It features all kinds of craft, knit designs, artists and generally quite hip stuff in the world of contemporary DIY/design. It’s totally worth checking out – even if you don’t speak German!! Flip through the entire issue online then tell Christian & team how cool it is at the magazine’s official facebook page. (P.S. Welcome to spring, northern hemisphere readers!)
