This week’s most notable stuff from the crochet blogosphere:
You can win $300 worth of yarn from Juniper Moon Farm (@ShepherdSusie) if you come up with the right word that they’re looking for. They want a word or short phrase to describe”the well-read, thoughtful people who are making deliberate decisions to grow their own food, sew their own clothes, maybe keep a couple of hens or beehives while maintaining a serious profession and living in the city or suburbs”.
