Note From the Editor

The leaves are disappearing and the temps are continuing to drop which means the holidays are fast approaching. For this reason we packed the issue with a variety of gift-making options for you and yours.

In the Say It With Crochet! chapter, we give you several ways to express the feelings of the season. These projects include words and expressions using a variety of techniques, including corner-to-corner, surface crochet and tapestry crochet, as well as crocheting 3-D letters and motifs. Test out a new technique and then perhaps use these projects as stepping stones to adding a personal touch to other crochet pieces.

The rest of the issue is packed full of great smaller projects for gifting that you can whip up in no time. Our hope is that you like them so much that youíll make extra for yourself. There are wonderfully warm and cozy wearables, beautiful throws, and lovely home decor pieces. We havenít forgotten the little ones with a few adorable projects for their amusement. There are also some amazing thread projects including a holiday wall hanging, lovely little coasters and a couple of elegantly designed doilies.

We wish you and yours the very best this holiday season and health and happiness in the new year!

Happy crocheting!
