In Our Tenth Issue

Spring is all about new beginnings. This issue is the last collaboration between former editor Cari Clement (now the editor of KnitStyle magazine) and myself. Cari (who is also my good friend) chose the beautiful designs and yarns, and I styled the shots and wrote the copy. Cari and I worked together for several years when she was with Caron, where I worked as a designer. Just for fun, I've included a few shots of us together over the years.

This is also the last issue for Kim Guzman, our "Technique 1-2-3" columnist. She has a vast wealth of knowledge in crochet, and I have learned from her right along with all of you. We thank you, Kim, from the bottom of our hooks for all of the great lessons you have taught us in this magazine and in your online videos. (You can find Kim's video tutorials here.) Writer Andee Graves will be taking over the column beginning with our next issue, and we are excited to see what she has in store for us!

Choose any one of our shawls for an ideal Mother's Day gift—I love the fluid drape of the Perfect in Pink Shawl on page 21. Home accessories, amazing afghans, and (of course) adorable baby items are as plentiful in this issue as spring daffodils in the Northeast.

We hope you keep your hooks busy this spring with beautiful projects from this issue!
