On the Cover:
Cougar Close Up, hooked by Judy Carter.

Our winter issue is ready for you—and what an issue it is! Patterns and projects abound, from a 3-dimensional sheep to a fabulous compass rose pattern, designed by our favorite rug-hooker-on-the-road, Janine Broscious. Each year the Chinese New Year features a different animal—Tatiana Knodel shows us her collection of New Year mats. Punch hooking is particularly popular now; look inside for a llama pattern by Christie Beniston. And have you considered adding theorem painting to your bag of tricks? Linda Pietz shows us how she does just that. This collection of rug hooking experts has just what you need to warm up your winter. We hope you enjoy it!
