Note From the Editor

Spring is that glorious time of year when one wants to get outside and enjoy the delightful warmer weather and beauty of nature. Gardens blooming with colorful flowers are a sure sign that the season has arrived.

Our Colors of Spring section features a fresh array of projects with floral themes. Included are a lacy pillow, a fun scarf, a gorgeous necklace, a cute silverware holder, a festive teapot hot pad and a colorful canister cozy.

In our Crochet Reimagined section, the projects are based on the fun concept of transforming vintage patterns or old-fashioned styles into modern creations. Featured designs include a gorgeous floral shawl, a sweet little filet shrug, a cute flower-adorned cloche and pretty pot holders.

Of course, you'll find many other fresh and exciting projects in this issue as well. For the little ones, we begin a new series of adorable patchwork animals with a darling pig in our Scrap Delights feature. And our cuddly and sweet lamb pillow will charm even the most wide-awake toddler to sleep. You'll also find an attractive tee-style top, a cute handbag and creative items for the home. There is truly something for everyone!

While this glorious spring season is sure to delight your senses, we think this issue will provide plenty of inspiration to stir your creative spirit with the joy of crochet!

Happy stitching,
