I miss doing “link love” roundups each week featuring the best new things in crochet. It’s my hope that eventually I’ll get enough Patreon support to bring those back as a weekly feature. But in the meantime, I’m able to share this roundup of links today thanks to sponsor support from two awesome sponsors: Jenny and Teddy and 5amily.
