The Best Crochet Blog Posts of the Week (Link Love!)

I am always so impressed by the wonderful crochet information and items shared around the web each week. Here were this week’s favorites:

Something Special

A Creative Being is hosting a CAL for the beautiful overlay crochet mandala. The crochet pattern, which is sold on Etsy by CAROCreated, was definitely one of my favorites when I did my recent mandala crochet pattern roundup.

Other Things

  • SIBOL blanket deliveries. Sue over at SIBOL collecets knit and crochet squares to make beautiful blankets for the elderly. In this post she talks more about that and I really enjoyed learning why she does what she does. There was another good post about donating to charities this week from Crochet Cabana who reminds us that there are scammers out there and provides some helpful tips for making sure that the places you donate your handmade items to are legit.
  • Crochet is More Popular Than Paper Crafts. At least that was the case in the face-off done over as part of the Fave Crafts Crafty-lympics.
  • Congrats to Crochet with Cris. She won first place at her state fair for her crochet afghan.
  • Crochet haiku. Love this little poem from Toni Rexroat of @CrochetMe. There’s actually a haiku contest happening at Interweave. Click through to the post to find out how to enter to win some yarn. Here’s another haiku from Aberrant Crochet.
