Link Love: This Week’s Best Crochet Blog Posts

Here are this week’s links to what I thought were the best crochet blog posts of the week.

Something Special

Did you know that the CGOA 2012 Design Competition is now open? There are seven judging categories for designs (all of which must be entirely or mostly crochet): Fanciful Fashion, (Just) Fashion, Accessories, Small Wonders, Afghans, Thread Crochet, Artistic Expressions. Get designing and enter before the June deadline.

Smart Words About Crochet

Beautiful Things People are Crocheting

I’m in love with this doily lamp. It’s from Swedish blog Calinas but I found it this week from Pinterest and traced it back to Apartment Therapy (@apttherapy) before finding the source.

I’m adoring creJJtion’s bright coasters and the basket they go in. She does share the crochet pattern.

I rarely like crochet cozies for things like toilet paper and tissues but I am making an exception in this case! Beautiful work from @karinaandehaak!
