link love blog

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.

Something Special

grandma lucy

My grandmother passed away earlier this week. I just wanted to share this photo of her that I found where she is sitting in front of a crochet granny square blanket. I don’t remember her crocheting but I know that she did. This is her obituary.

Crochet Quote

“When we crochet, knit, craft with someone in mind, we do so as a symbol of our love, of our appreciation, of our friendship.  As each stitch is crafted, that love is poured into it.  So yes, it does bother us, well, at least it bothers me, when I am told upon gifting this item, that it is “Too nice to use.” – Crochet with Dee
