I recently shared my Wool and the Gang Rose Cardigan here on the blog. At the same time that I got the kit, I also received a couple of balls of the brand’s Take Care Mohair Yarn to try out. I enjoyed working with it and wanted to tell you more about it today.
Every year on Thanksgiving I share the reasons that I am thankful for crochet and all that it has brought into my life. This if the fifth year that this blog has been up on Thanksgiving, and as I look back on the posts from previous years, I see that there are endless ways that crochet has improved my life.
The Rose Cardigan Crochet Kit from Wool and the Gang is a beautiful set for making your own cotton crochet cardi. I was happy to receive a kit in the color Spearmint Green to play with.
This year I completed one of my favorite crochet makes, yet – a blue ombre chevron crochet blanket.
I just wanted to let you know that I have a long post up today on my personal blog, Diary of a Smart Chick, about the Mandalas for Marinke project and the personal impact it’s having in terms of my own life.
Yesterday I shared my post about the t-shirt yarn crochet baskets I made using yarn from Wool and the Gang. I also used that same t-shirt yarn (called Jersey Be Good) to make new bath mats for myself.
I learned to crochet when I was a child but didn’t really do much with it until I was in my late 20s. I was going through a battle with depression and there wasn’t a whole lot that I had energy for but I remembered that I liked to crochet when I was young so I decided to learn again. I began with making basic scarves and blankets but then began to create a variety of art in crochet. I love that this is a form of self-expression that I can embrace even though I’m not skilled at arts like drawing, painting or sculpting!
