There will always be more yarn crafts I want to do than I can ever do. I should get that embroidered on some kind of pillow or on a print. Let’s add to that list right now with this list of yarn crafts that have caught my eye this week!
My grandmother knitted these mittens for my mom when she was a teen. When I was home for Christmas, my mom said I could have them, and I was obviously excited. They’re really a sweet little set of mittens with a basic checked motif, and I absolutely love the color.
If you’re looking for some ideas to keep your hands occupied during maybe-too-cold weather, I’ve got some picks from the blogging world this week for your crafty consideration.
There’s nothing like uber-cold weather to get me in the mood for hibernating with a few good skeins of yarn I’m dying to experiment with. Polar weather isn’t for everyone, but I’m into it, at least for a month or two.
I skipped on my weekly roundup last week for the holidays, which means today’s picks cover more than usual. And as it’s a new year, I think I’m going to expand my picks of the week to include other yarn projects like fancy pom poms, macrame, and weaving. I’m new to funky poms, but I would love learn how to make & design cool poms of my own!
In 2014, I really focused on blogging about knitting and crochet, and you guys were into it! Looking back, it’s no surprise that most of the top posts of the year were knitting patterns and tutorials on how to do knitting related things like make your own yarn, finger knit, keep yarn colors from bleeding, and casting on techniques.
It’s almost knitting & crocheting for yourself time, kittens! In honor of that glorious, post-Christmas zen knitting glow, today’s collage features four totally cute winter patterns you should whip up for yourself after your December gift-making marathon. I, for one, am looking forward to some selfish knitting in 2015! 6 days and counting, my friends. 6 days.
