Happy New Year! Are you ready for 2018? Whether you need to clear out that stash, finish all those WIPs or open that Etsy shop, sparkly new 2018 could be the perfect time, and thankfully, we’re here to help! Has it been ages since you learnt a new skill? Then try our slip-stitch tablet cover on page 87. Keep your promises to family members using our Snuggly Knits booklet, or if you need a trusty handbook to keep your yarn life organised, read our free Knitting Notebook – it’s bursting with essential info and advice, and comes with four seasonal patterns to keep your mojo going.
Sadly, this issue sees our last pattern from Alan Dart. Working with him over the last 11 years has been a huge pleasure, and you can read about his time designing for us on page 54. Let us know how many of his designs you’ve knitted! We’re sad to say goodbye to Alan, but we’re excited to welcome new faces, so next issue, we’ll be saying hello to some new toy designers. Have a knit-tastic January!
