ADHD Crochet made a crochet larynx for class. Go to the original post to see the whole process. This reminds me of some of the other anatomy crochet I saw when doing research for my post on organ donation crochet.

Crochet Blanket in Shoebox Doll House Project. Sure, the crochet is just a small part of this but I love the project and think you should check out the full post from @creativejmom!

Helpful Tips and Tutorials

  • How to Get an Even Stitch and Gauge in Crochet. @freshstitches had another great Tuesday Tip! I actually don’t have an even stitch at all. I always crochet looser towards the end of a project than the beginning. I’ve actually learned to adapt to this, though, not just by paying attention to fix it (which I do for some projects) but also by using it to my advantage to create increase-size project without having to actually add increases (a technique I often use when making my own crochet dresses).
  • Initial Double Crochet without Starting Chain. A photo rich tutorial from @crochetspot

Amazing Crochet Giveaways

  • Win an eco-friendly plarn tote bag. @tinadeandesigns has already been at the Emmy’s and now her plarn creations are going to the Oscars! In celebration, she’s teamed up with GoGreenAmerica for a giveaway of a stunning denim and plarn tote bag valued at $120.
  • Win a flock of sheep. Yes, you read that correctly. You obviously need to have the space and ability to care for them. And you have to complete a video entry explaining why you want them. But wow, what an amazing offer from @ShepherdSusie.
  • Win @twinkiechan Goodies. Including perhaps a pizza scarf worth $140.

WOW, that's an impressive list. Hoping to pop back in later and visit some of them. Maybe I'll do a few household things, and sneak back...shhhhhhh don't tell I'm not done with my chores.
