As this issue was going to production, we got word that the office was closing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Transitioning from working in an office every day to working at home is quite the shift! We all went from meeting in person in conference rooms to collaborating virtually over email and webcams. It was strange not to see teammates every day, but it was also fun to get a glimpse of their homelives as pets, kids, and partners wandered into conference calls. It was an adjustment, but we were prepared to do our part to “flatten the curve.” Being cooped up indoors for a long time can be a challenge.

crochet essentials

1. AKERWORKS SWATCH GAUGE Swatching is one of the most important parts of any fiber craft. Often overlooked, this step is essential when you’re trying to ensure the correct size on a garment. With this swatch gauge, you’ll be certain to get it right every time. The six plastic teeth on the end of each arm will hold your swatch in place and prevent it from shifting while you count your stitches. As an added plus, one side of each arm is marked with whole-inch increments, making measuring while counting that much simpler! Retail Price: $17.50 www.akerworks.com 2.

in the garden throw

Heirloom-project alert! Bold mosaic flowers in two sizes pop against the classic white background of the In the Garden Throw. Sections of plain double crochet are placed between the flower sections to provide relief for the eye and the crocheter alike. The yarn is cleverly cut after each row to become fringe, resulting in very few ends to weave in. YARN Scheepjes Colour Crafter. DIFFICULTY FINISHED SIZE 40½ " wide and 65½ " long, excluding fringe.
