Hello and welcome to an issue packed with seasonal inspiration!
Father's Day is coming up on 16 June and we have plenty of gift ideas to get you ready for the big day. There's a gorgeous textured jumper; a quick-knit Fair Isle tie with plenty of wow factor; and what golfer dad could resist our speedy stashbuster club covers? Of course, these fab knits would work equally well for birthdays too!
We also have two great gifts for you this month. Our handy measuring tool will help you get the length of your socks just right, and you can use it when you cast on the sweet socks in our extra pattern booklet. Plus brighten up a little one's day with our colourful daisy jumper, and fuel their imagination with an out-of-this-world astronaut and rocket toy.
Find all this and the latest news, reviews and reader stories in issue 185, on sale now. Enjoy!
