A Note From the Edi­tor

Crochet! - - Crochet In The News - Con­nie El­li­son, Edi­tor

Let me in­tro­duce my­self: I am the new edi­tor for Cro­chet! I am a lover of all things cro­chet and I have a weak­ness for yarn.

I like to quote Jean Lein­hauser, past edi­tor of Cro­chet!, who said, “Most of us who cro­chet are cro­chet ad­dicts and share a se­ries of syn­dromes: YAS ( Yarn Ac­qui­si­tion Syn­drome), HAS (Hook Ac­qui­si­tion Syn­drome) PAS (Pat­tern Ac­qui­si­tion Syn­drome) and MAS (Mag­a­zine Ac­qui­si­tion Syn­drome).” I am proud to say I suf­fer from all of these syn­dromes!

My chil­dren have long since left the nest and their old clos­ets are filled with boxes and bags of yarns of all colors, tex­tures and weights. Not to men­tion draw­ers filled with hooks in all shapes, sizes and colors, and book­shelves filled with decades of pat­tern and mag­a­zine col­lec­tions.

I freely ad­mit that I am a “cro­chet ad­dict,” so you can imag­ine how ex­cited I was when I was asked to be the edi­tor of Cro­chet! I am hon­ored to have this po­si­tion and look for­ward to hearing your com­ments or sug­ges­tions.

This is­sue is filled with fash­ions and ac­ces­sories to keep you warm and in style this win­ter, plus beau­ti­ful hol­i­day home ac­ces­sories and, of course, adorable lit­tle things for the baby in your life.

I hope you en­joy this is­sue as much as I en­joyed putting it to­gether for you.

Cheers, and happy cro­chet­ing!
