Link love is my way of giving back to the crochet community by highlighting the great work out there each week from crochet bloggers, designers, artists and more. Here are this week’s links …
Do you enjoy link love? It takes a lot of hard work. Donations appreciated to keep it going. Every bit helps.
More than 5400 people have now taken my crochet health survey. It’s amazing to see the responses and learn even more ways that crochet is helping people. The survey is still up and I’m still looking for people to take it, blog about it and spread the word. Please help!
“One of the nicest thing about being a hand-crafter is that I can whip out the perfect last-minute gift in no time. Of course, finding “perfect” after you’ve been whipping out wonderful hand-crafted gifts for more than 20 years can get a little challenging — have I done it already? How many more amigurumi does aunt Sally really need? And the msot challenging question of all… can I whip it up quick so that I can get back to all the other WIPs laying around my craft room???” – Itsy Bitsy Spider
