Note From the Editor

Winter is almost over and spring is slowly emerging with the first signs of green on the trees and daffodils peeking between patches of the last drifts of snow.

Spring always seems like the perfect time for new things, and my crochet projects often reflect that. Over the winter I try to finish up as many UFO's (UnFinished Objects) from my New Year's resolution list as possible, but come spring I am ready to reward myself by starting a new project!

For this issue we've brought together some exciting new corner-to-corner projects. I must admit I have not personally tried this technique, but this issue is about to change that, as my new spring project might just have to be one of the C-2-C projects in this issue! If you are a newbie like me, you may want to begin with the Touches of Spring Table Runner, or the Striped C-2-C Pillow; both are simple projects that will give you the confidence to move on to one of the more unusual projects in this chapter. I love the Cornerto-Corner Openwork Throw and the Somersault Throw and am having a difficult time deciding which one to do for my home! I may just have to make both!

If you have a craft room (or house!) bursting with scrap yarn like me, I know that you will appreciate the Stash-Busting Crochet chapter! It seems there is always a never-ending supply of scraps just begging to be used up. Not only will you find projects to use up your scraps in this chapter, but you'll find some other fun stashbusting projects throughout the issue too!

Our up-front features include a shawl perfect for new crocheters, a cardi just right for spring, and a fun-to-stitch cowl. With over 20 projects in this issue, your spring is sure to be filled with crochet!
