A lot of this week’s picks have a very specific sort of late wintry vibe that’s right in line with the weather these days. Lots of earthy neutral colors with just a hint of color here and there. There’s something really relaxing about a group of projects like this, don’t you think?
This new crop of crochet patterns is so perfect for spring. No matter your crochet style, anyone can find a project to get excited about among this month’s new pattern picks!
The Olympics opening ceremony is today! For chronic Knitflixers and Olympics fiends, this is a time that only comes once every other year! An excellent excuse to stay up too late knitting entire sweaters, blankets, and accessories as you watch people’s lifelong dreams come to fruition. There’s nothing like it, and it pairs oh so well with our favorite hobbies. :)
