WELCOME TO ISSUE 12 OF

Olann and

It’s Springtime but here in Ireland it’s felt like perpetual Winter so we wanted to brighten things up with an injection of colour and some fabulous colourwork designs. As usual, we’ve also got book reviews, podcast suggestions and we take a look at some fascinating colourwork yarns. We also speak to two Irish designers: the colourful Kieran Foley and Tunisian crochet guru Aoibhe Ni Shuilleabhain.
