As we start to emerge, along with the spring flowers here in the UK, many of us are needing to take things a little bit slowly to give ourselves and others time and space to reflect and recharge.
With this in mind, I hope this issue helps inspire you to pick up your hook and start a new project that will fill you with joy and bring you moments of calm.
Our stunning cover project, the Lotus Tunic by Cassie Ward, is joined by the elegant Luma Vest by Eline Alcocer, and Annelies Baes' Inner Peace Cardigan, as part of our collection of wearable makes to help curate your handmade wardrobe.
If it's your home you are looking to reinvigorate, Lucy Djevdet's mirror is quick to hook and Kwannie Cheng's textured cushion trio gives a contemporary feel to any room, while Camilla Baroe's delicate Mandala Garland is a meditative make.
And if you are keen to develop your existing skills then try Tatsiana Kupryianchyk's soothing Sea Tiles Blanket and follow her Masterclass to work the intricate brioche pattern, or try your hand at Tunisian crochet and usher in summer with Helda Panagary's delicious Strawberries & Cream Shawl.
Enjoy the issue.
