In addition to being the year of pom poms, 2017 has been, trend-wise, one of the most colorful holiday seasons we’ve seen in years.
Neutrals are certainly trending in home decor these days, and I must admit that they look pretty cozy. Who would want to enter a bedroom with a giant (giant!) tassel on the door knob, a huge roving wreath on the wall, and a chunky cushion to read with? Very hygge indeed!
Newsflash, fall doesn’t have to mean a slew of neutral colors with a dash of dark orange thrown in!
This week’s picks ended up being such an elegant combination of subtle rainbow (yes! It’s a thing!) and neutral tones layered with relaxing pastels. Such a lovely collection to admire, not to mention draw inspiration from!
It’s looking like yellow, green & pink are big colors for summer. An avid supporter of primary-adjacent color combos, I am really, really excited about the direction crafts are headed this season. Who wouldn’t be excited about tricolor pompoms, meditative afghans, and cute accessories?
This week’s picks really show a nice cross section of the kinds of projects you can make relatively quickly with crochet! Everything from a super adorable teddy bear pencil holder to a festival-ready bag to an elegant as heck reticule purse is represented here, and I think that’s great!
Is it 5 o’clock yet? These amazing ideas are going to have you itching to cast on a new project this weekend!
All of this week’s picks can easily be made in a weekend (if not an afternoon) and are a great way to get down with your introverted winter self!
Fa la la la la, we’ve still got a week til Christmas! In the mind of a knitter, that means 1.5 weekends or so to finish holiday projects in time for last minute decorating and gifting. Check out this week’s last minute crafting-friendly ideas!
