Spring is now definitely in the air â€“ Iâ€™ve even been able to put washing out on the line again! And though Iâ€™m sad to pack away my thick woolly
jumpers, I also love the opportunity to get hooking more lightweight
projects, such as my striped Glenna Jumper or Emma Potterâ€™s elegant
Daphne Shawl, which is inspired by the Cornish coastland and the novels
of Daphne du Maurier. With sun starting to brighten up the darker
corners of my home, Iâ€™m also planning on adding some extra spots of
colour, such as Dedri Uysâ€™s pretty and practical draught excluder, or
Sarah Hazellâ€™s cushion which uses a weaving technique for added texture.
This issue weâ€™re feeling a bit patriotic and celebrate some of our favourite British yarns! There are some truly gorgeous breeds and blends available, from the colourful Wensleydale used in Jacinta Bowieâ€™s striped Josephine Cardigan to the natural shades of John Arbon yarn in her stunning motif shawl, the felted textures of Lynne Roweâ€™s Radial Bag and the Yorkshire raised and spun Wendy yarn in Millie Mastertonâ€™s adorable sheepy blanket. And on page 26 Rachel Atkinson of Daughter Of A Shepherd explores just what makes British wool so great, and where to buy some of our favourite British yarns.
Weâ€™ve also found a great free gift for you this month â€“ a set of four shell buttons, with a pretty floral design on each one. Theyâ€™re ideal for a classic cardigan, a button-up cowl, or Claireâ€™s adorable baby cardigan on page 80.
