WOW! What a great (and unique) concept!
Story Maker is part novel and part knitting pattern book. It comes in 2 formats:

A Hidden Gem in the Colors
This is so cool, and I’m not sure that I would have noticed it unless Alexis told me.
The color palettes of the yarn and the FOs are also the same color palette in the illustrations too!
I love that little detail and it makes the whole book just a bit more special to me.
Alexis really put a lot of love into this book.
Which came first? The Knitting or the Reading?
I have a slightly different hope than Alexis – that this book makes Knitters into Readers.
I know that I don’t read nearly as much as I’d like. I tend to do Knitting or Crochet in most of my downtime. This book might be different though, because even though I’d be reading, I’d also get my Knit Fix.
If You Buy Like Me
I can tell you in chatting with Alexis, it was clear that she’s just a nice person. And that checks lots of boxes for me. I can comfortably support Alexis and Story Maker/Made (both the book and the yarn).
I hadn’t considered Story Made yarns before, but after this, you can bet that I’ll be looking at it and considering it.
About the Reviewer: Jody Richards
Jody is the founder and lead editor of Knotions. She loves poring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches.
She’s also on a mission to get everyone to embrace the blocking. And, to avoid using garter stitch edges in swatches.
And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
