It might still technically be winter – and cold! – but I have to say I’m really enjoying seeing the way that the days are getting longer, bringing that extra bit of sunshine and reminding me that spring is on the way.
To celebrate, we’ve got a bit of a “love” theme this month, with a fabulous free gift so you can make adorable heart-shaped pom-poms to decorate your crochet, plus some fun heart-filled designs – Deb Stuart’s Cariad Hat has gone straight to the top of my must-hook list!
We’ve also gone all-out with colour this issue, as a bit of an antidote to the still-grey winter skies. From Cassie Ward’s gloriously bright hooded cardigan to Helda Panagary’s linen scarf, plus Elisabeth Davis de Herraiz’s gorgeous gradient shawl, we’ve got plenty of projects sure to bring a smile to your face.
We’ve also got part two of our mystery crochet-along blanket – textured flowers ready to make up the first stage of the border. Have you started yours yet? We’d love to see your pictures!
