Spring has sprung! And much as I love the thick woolly jumpers we get to snuggle up in during the winter months, I have to admit Iâ€™m breathing a sigh of relief at longer days, clearer skies and the first shoots of plants and flowers re-emerging into the light. Thereâ€™s something about clusters of daffodils on morning walks that means I canâ€™t help but smile!
Welcoming in the joys of spring this issue weâ€™ve got a gorgeous woolly wrap by Rosina Northcott, which combines filet crochet and lace with a stunning British yarn. Thereâ€™s also a lightweight Tunisian crochet top by Bianca Boonstra, in pure cotton, and a lovely lacy shrug in a silk blend by Elisabeth Davis de Herraiz.
If youâ€™re after projects for the kids, weâ€™ve got a great selection this month too, with a sweet
nursery mobile featuring fun sea creatures by Sarah Reed, as well as
adorable baby booties from Millie Masterton.
And if you turn to page 24 youâ€™ll find the third part of our colourful mystery crochet-along by Annelies Baes â€“ itâ€™s all starting to come together now!
Check out this issueâ€™s instalment to make a start on the borders, and if you havenâ€™t started yet see how to order a complete pack of all the yarn you need.
