Sponsor Love


@yarnvalet launched this week; this is a family business of knitters and crocheters who are making some really cool tools for yarn storage and craft organization. They also had some free downloadables on their site this week, like this project pad row counter: “It will help you count your rows as well as pattern repeats! Just download, print and fill out: what project you are working on, needle/hook size and yarn.”

crochet mandalas for marinke

Family Craft Studio did a beautiful post about making crochet Mandalas For Marinke, writing (in part):

“With so many overwhelming changes happening in my life currently, I took the opportunity, while making my mandalas, to consciously reflect on the state of my mind. At first, every few stitches I noted the different stresses, the anxieties, and feelings of lonely stagnation. With each round I created, I would focus on, restructure, ease out of, and then close the door on another stressor as the last stitch on my round closed too.”

Crochet Patterns

crochet mandala blanket pattern

Wink’s mandala blanket crochet pattern free from A Spoonful of Yarn (Wink’s sister-in-law), who touchingly wrote: “I feel weird now it’s done. It’s not like now it’s finished, Marinke will come back. There’s no magic that makes all the missing go away. But it helped me heal. I hope it helps other people heal to, or just bring a smile to their face. For whatever reason they decide to make this, make it with love.”

Crochet News

elderly male veteran crocheter

“As a U.S. Army infantryman during World War II, Vern Farnham saw hard fighting from Marseilles, France, to Stuttgart, Germany … Now, more than 70 years after the end of World War II, the 90-year-old Parrish resident continues to serve his fellow veterans by crocheting colorful afghans for patients at Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. So far, he’s made 425, all to show the vets that someone cares about them, and bring them a little cheer.”
