I love the color palette formed by this week’s picks collage! The mints and the pinks and the greys and the creams – the brights juxtaposed with the subtler tones make such a good combo.
picks of the week
There were so many amazing crochet ideas in the yarn blog world this week! Lots of cute ideas and patterns, and so many of them are free.
Ahh, it’s summer holiday weekend time! I have a few days off and some big knitting goals I hope to hit. Luckily, barbecues and fireworks displays tend to be knitter-friendly. Happy Independence Day, friends! :)
After Monday’s beginner weaving tutorial, I’ve been on the lookout for some fun weaving tips and ideas, and the dream catcher CDs and uber-tassels featured are by far my favorite picks.
I had a busy week launching the Hands Occupied pattern shop, so while I’m off relaxing, you should try one of these great project ideas this weekend!
Even if you can’t make my knit in public meetup this weekend, or another one closer to you, you can still try one of my favorite yarn ideas of the week to fill the void created by missing knit in public day festivities.
Man, tassels were totally trending this week in the blog world. I found a range of tassel DIY ideas to share with you guys, including home décor items and accessories. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this is such an inspiring time of year to rethink your approach to yarn crafting! And isn’t it fun to try something new?
By the time this post is published, I’ll be on the road to Columbus to attend my first National Needlearts Association Conference! While I’m conferencing, you should check out my top yarn & pom pom picks of the week. :)
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the upcoming Worldwide Knit in Public Day, which I wrote about last year. This year, it’s coming up on Saturday, June 13, and what I’ve been thinking about maybe hosting a stitch’n’bitch session in Chicago that weekend. Would you come?
