This issue is packed with stories and projects that I hope will inspire hours of creative time this spring. We’re covering everything from knitting, crocheting and sewing to weaving, yarn dyeing, felting, embroidery, herbal medicine, gardening, baking and more. I previewed some of the projects from this issues in a previous post, and here’s a few more:

The Dory Spring Shawlette by Lisa Gutierrez is lovely and a fast crochet project for those looking to style up for a fun night on the town.

Allyson Dykhuizen’s knitted headband patterns require little bits of yarn are fun to sport around town.

Rita Pettey’s, of Yarn Hollow fame, created a fun Wrigby Wrister pattern that can be knitted in the round or flat and seamed up at the end. (The wrister shown above was knitted flat.)

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Issue 6 contains more than 20 patterns, projects and recipes to keep those creative juices flowing.

I continue to enjoy the adventure of working with an ever-changing line-up of talented contributors and I’m so grateful for their willingness to be part of this little magazine that I make late at night when most people are sleeping.
