I love this new tradition I’ve started of making my weekly roundups about sharing favorite knit, crochet & yarn finds from the week (and maybe a week or two before if it’s something I just came across on Pinterest). My favorite part is spending too much time lingering over the pictures and enjoying the overwhelming sense of relaxation I feel imaging getting to work on them. There’s also something kind of just dreamy for me about looking at cotton projects in early summer.
In the crafting world (more so than my real life Chicago world), this week started to show some lovely and much welcome signs of spring! Some of the sweetest floral project ideas have started sprouting all over the place in recent weeks. I love it so much and am officially DIY inspired for spring. Now if only the weather would be a little more inspired, we’d be all set. For now, check out what’s got me so amped this week.
