I\u2019ve read and heard that phrase, as I\u2019m sure you all have, many times these past few months. But what does it really mean? Unprecedented describes something unexampled or unparalleled \u2014 something never known before, never experienced. \r\nIt\u2019s easy to read that definition and feel fear. I know I do, especially after reading too much of the news. I often feel it just as I\u2019m about to head into the grocery store \u2013 face masked, hands gloved and pockets stuffed with Lysol wipes. Each successful trip feels like a triumph and I\u2019ve started timing myself to see how quickly I can be in and out so I can reduce my exposure to other people. \r\n\r\nBut even in the midst of everything, I can\u2019t help but notice the good things, too. The regular phone calls with friends. Checking in with my parents daily. The extra time I have to do some of the things I love most: cooking, crafting, learning new skills. I know I am not alone in needing new ways to comfort and soothe my soul at the end of each stressful day. That\u2019s why now, perhaps now more than ever, it was crucial to us that we deliver this issue on time, no matter the circumstances. \r\n\r\nAnd so, armed with a mannequin, a camera and her younger sister, I Like Crochet editor, Nicola Prybell, made a trip to an empty strip mall to photograph the projects you see in this issue and we finished building it remotely, at our individual homes. While definitely not the way we usually operate \u2013 with our freelance photographer, lifestyle models and access to our office\u2019s prop room and studio \u2013 I love how everything turned out! \r\n\r\nWe both hope you enjoy this issue that\u2019s stuffed with patterns that are calling for warmer weather, from scarves and shawls, to tops and beach bags. \r\n\r\nStart by diving into our new modern classics section, featuring the cutest Plaid Poncho you\u2019ve ever seen, and make sure not to miss the stunning cover project: the Sunset Breeze Crescent Lace Shawl. Looking for something to pass the time? We\u2019ve rounded up some of our favorite one-skein patterns that make the perfect stash busters during your time spent at home. Plus, you can\u2019t help but smile when you see the fun, bright patterns featured in our beach section. My personal favorite is the sun hat with the cursive word \u201chappy\u201d crocheted on the side. \r\n\r\nWe hope this issue helps to inspire, to comfort and to pass the time. \r\n\r\nTake care and be well,\r\nCaitlin"}}}
