I usually welcome in the new year with talk of exciting resolutions, the thrill of spring on the way and maybe a mention of having a good old clear out of your stash. This year feels very different, and the usual celebrations feel out of place. Rather than rushing headlong into 2021, most of us are needing to take things more slowly and tentatively than usual.Buy this issue →Go digital →
So, this issue, whilst we look forward to a better year, we also want to encourage you to take things at a gentle pace, enjoy your cosy yarns, create nurturing garments to wrap yourself and loved ones in, and hook blankets that will become much-loved heirloom pieces.
Claire Goodale's gorgeous Apr's Ski Sweater and Cassie Ward's on-trend Verbier Nights Jumper are sure to become winter staples in your wardrobe, whilst Zoe Curtis' Cosy Cuddle Cardigan is like wearing a much-needed hug! And Cassie Ward's Stranded Snowflake Blanket brings a touch of Scandi-chic to any room - simply accessorise with our two lovely cushions and curl up on a warm sofa!
If you are feeling adventurous take a look at
the amazing retro cuckoo clock by Kwannie Cheng. It is guaranteed to raise a
smile, as is the sweetest little bear by Matt Farci, waking up after a long
hibernation, to wonder at the new year ahead!
