WELCOME TO ISSUE 13 OF

Olann and

The theme for the designs in this issue is colour and light. It’s been a glorious summer so far and we’re looking at lighter garments and accessories as well as helping you get a kick start on your winter knitting. As usual, we’ve also got book reviews, podcast suggestions and we take a look at breed specific yarns. We also delve into the traditional craft of crios belt weaving, and we have a lovely summer porridge recipe.
