Welcome to the February issue of Potter Craft News!

Dear Crafters,

Maybe it’s not the biggest story to hit the headlines this month, but everyone here at Potter Craft is super-excited about the “Which Fiber Are You?” quiz on our news homepage. It’s short, fun, and 100 percent accurate. We know because we tested it—turns out that most of us around these parts are Angoras!

But whether you share the personality traits of Angora or Wool, chances are you’ll love Twinkle’s Weekend Knits. This follow-up to Twinkle’s Big City Knits is filled with 20 high-fashion projects from designer Wenlan Chia—and they’re all quick-to-knit. I think I’m going to make the Riverbed Shawl first! If for some reason you have that independent Camel spirit or you just don’t feel like knitting, Durwin Rice’s New Decoupage is the book for you. It just came out in paperback and it’s filled with modern projects for your magazine clippings, handmade papers, and family photos. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Stay warm.

Rosy Ngo, Editorial Director
