Hairpin lace gets an update in this Spring issue with four decidedly modern designs, including one by hairpin lace diva Jennifer Hansen. You can give your spring wardrobe a kick with four Essential Shells and five Swingy Skirts. Our Sock Series wraps up with two toe-up socks designs, plus tips for making custom-fit socks. Maire Treanor's series on Clones lace continues with motifs for grapes, vines, and leaves. We also welcome Vickie Howell and her new column. Altogether, you'll find 26 projects to keep your hook busy until summer.
