Today marks the 200th installment of the Picks of the Week series, guys! How do I know this? Well, when you write blog posts that have the same title, like this Picks of the Week series, the address for the page is the same. (Ex: handsoccupied.com/picks-of-the-week) Every post given the same title automatically gets a number added to it, and, long story short, this is number 200! 200 weeks of inspiration, patterns, technique tutorials, trends, and tons of ideas to inspire you to start a new yarn craft project. We’ve featured nearly every yarn craft under the sun: adorable amigurumi, crazy crochet, killer knits, lovely latch hook, modern macrame, pretty punch needle… I could come up with more alliterative adjectives if you like, but you get the gist. ;) Here’s to 200 more weeks of great inspiration!

The Very Serious Crafts Podcast: I realized it makes total sense to start including a note about my podcast whenever there’s a new episode! If you’re not in the loop, I co-host the Very Serious Crafts podcast with two other professional crafters: Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive & Haley Pierson-Cox of Red-Handled Scissors. A new episode comes out every 2 weeks, and our 9th episode just arrived! Give it a listen – I’d love to hear what you think! Have you been listening to my podcast, Very Serious Crafts? Episode 9 arrived this week, and it includes a really funny chat about my dad’s scientific crafting adventures!
