The issue explores four themes, exploring creativity in different ways.

In Joyful, bright colours and fun lead the way. I love the Bohemian Bralette, by Cara Medus.

Mindful explores being present and in the here and now. Tammy has designed read between the lines yoga socks which I think you’ll love to knit.

My own contribution is in Spiritual. You can create your own chakra flags and as you work on each, take the time to bring yourself back to the centre and re-balance.

We round it out with Respectful, and take a moment to reflect on our actions and impact on this changing environment with the Earth Day sweater by Lili van Wattum.

I say it every issue, but this is my favourite.  Simy’s challenge is a celebration of life, and my daughter and I will make our festival crowns together. Check out #simyschallenge on socials to see the beautiful creations and add your own.

Which project will you try first?  Tag me @miss__neriss on instagram and add your projects to Ravelry.

I feel like I want to say: namaste, but that sounds a bit silly coming from me, the one who’s usually running around with her hair on fire!  But, we all have to start somewhere right?  So… Namaste 😉
