WELCOME TO ISSUE 8 OF

Olann and

The theme for this issue is warm and cosy. It’s that time of year when you want to wrap up in something warm, and if you do have to venture out, you’ll need something snuggly to protect you against the elements. If you’re hibernating, we’ve got book reviews, podcast suggestions and we take a look at heavier weight yarns. We also delve into the wonderful world of embroidery, and we have a new columnist who takes us down the patchwork rabbit hole.
