Whew … February was another busy month here on this crochet blog. Did you see that this blog was chosen as a runner-up for best craft blog in Inside Crochet? And that I launched a new monthly newsletter? Thanks to all my regular readers and commenters who make it such a joy for me to post every day. If you missed any of the posts during the month, you can find them in the recap below:

My favorite post was actually one that got a bit over looked: Oscar Nominated Crochet. I picked a few crochet items related to each of the best film nominations for the 2012 Oscars. I thought it was fun.
