Welcome to our winter warmers issue. Winter has arrived, and even though there are plenty of warm and sunny parts of Australia in the winter months, if you live in the southern parts or highlands, you might just be yearning for some winter warmers. Our projects will provide comfort and joy in the making, as well as comfort and warmth when completed. Start hooking a crocheted beanie or a rug crocheted with the Spiked Double Crochet stitch and start clacking your knitting needles to make a pair of knitted sloths. Also part of our winter warmers projects is a warm, snuggly quilt called Autumn Hope.
