Crochet Link Love – Top Posts of The Web This Week

Links to all of my favorite crochet blog posts from around the web this week. Which are your favorites?

Something Cool

Juniper Moon Farm is launching a new magazine called By Hand. They say: “By Hand is a lifestyle magazine for people who make, with departments for cooking, crafting, DIY, gardening, and do-gooding. Each issue will feature photo-intensive tutorials and recipes from pros and profiles of people who make their living with their hands.” It sounds like there will be opportunities for crochet designers with this place in the future if the magazine becomes a reality. They’ve got a Kickstarter campaign going to raise the funds to get the magazine launched. Visit here if you’re interested in learning more and donating $1 or more.
