Ready for some fun, happiness, and a little bit of rock and roll? This is our summer festival issue and we’ve packed it full of joyful, frivolous items that will make you smile when you wear them, such as Sarah Shrimpton’s gorgeous fl oral crown and Katherine Laight’s fun clog
flowers. There are plenty of projects that will be really handy at a music festival this summer, like the colourful water bottle carrier and Kath Webber’s bright and roomy drawstring bag. And finally the garments inside are inspired by festival wear but are also beautiful items in their own right, versatile enough to work as gorgeous layers for holidays and staycations alike.
The issue is tinged with sadness for me, however, as I am stepping down as the editor of Inside Crochet from issue 81. I have had such fun working with the team and contributors over the past four years and enjoyed meeting and hearing from lots of our readers along the way. I would like to thank you all for helping to create a beautiful magazine which I am extremely proud of, but the time has come to step back a little to concentrate on my own designs and my family. I will continue to style the photoshoots and contribute designs but will be handing over the editorship to our fabulous current deputy editor Rhian Drinkwater, who has lots of exciting new ideas for Inside Crochet.
I can’t wait to read it and will still be very excited at the sound of the mag dropping onto my doormat each month. I know you all will be too.
Claire Montgomerie, Editor
