WELCOME TO ISSUE 14 OF

Olann and

The theme for this issue is Harvest Moon, as the days begin to grow shorter and the light begins to fade, it’s only natural to want to cosy up in front of the fire with your latest project.  We’ve five designs to tempt you within this issue, four knitting and a fabulous crochet blanket, that will also be our latest CAL.

As usual, we’ve also got book reviews, podcast suggestions and we take a look at what’s new in yarns here in Ireland.  Our featured article is about the Irish Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers and we’ve got a recipe for our Knitorious Knitting Group Chocolate Chip Cookies.
