Something Special

SIBOL crochet blanket 400x300 Best Crochet Blog Links This Week

SIBOL accepts squares from crafters and they become blankets that are donated/sold for charity. This new Olympics blanket is amazing. Unfortunately, it can’t be sold because it has some Olympics logos in it that are trademarked. It’s too bad but I’m hoping people will share the photo anyway to send people to the SIBOL site and encouraging charity crafting!

Crochet Tips and Ideas

Crochet Patterns and Tutorials


International Yarnbombing Day was last weekend and we just wrapped up Knit in Public week so there’s been a resurgence of interest in yarnbombing. I know that I spent way too much time looking at cool outdoor yarn art this week; I even made a new Pinterest board for yarnbombing. Some of the best and biggest projects in yarnbombing right now:
  • MK Carroll shared: ” Honolulu’s inaugural yarn bombing crew, ArchiPURLago, Granny¬≤ and Hanasaurusrex, a.k.a. TheFuzz, and their super crew of volunteers and contributors, tagged the gardens of Spalding House.” (Click on “TheFuzz” link to see the images).
  • Stephen Duneier did a huge yarnbombed art tree on the Cold Spring Trail in Santa Barbara
  • Frenchtown (a small NJ town) got yarnbombed by about two dozen crafters

Other Stuff

  • @lionbrandyarns explained how to use their crochet group search tool to find a group to hook with in your area
  • If you’re on G+ I want to recommend following @sisterdiane because she and her followers do great weekly discussions on crafty business; this week’s was about craft books – why we buy them and why there’s a need for better reviews of them
  • Renate Kirkpatrick has made a beautiful pink freeform crochet piece in tribute to “sister & to all who are travelling the arduous cancer road”.

And Some Special Thanks
