Dear blog followers,
I love having you around. You make me feel listened-to. I hope you stick around and that I can continue to entertain you. * Warning: I talk about knitting a lot. I hope that’s what you signed up for.*
I’d like to pay tribute to a random sampling of my most recent followers. Check out their blogs. You might find a new favorite.
Bridgewater Crafts: This designer recently released a very beginner-friendly dishcloth pattern. I haven’t looked at the pattern (it’s paid) but it’s nice to see a designer taking something as simple as a dishcloth seriously enough to have the pattern tech-edited.
A Nerdy Crocheter: If I knew how to crochet, I would totally make this Sunburst Baby Blanket. She’s selling it on Etsy for $19.99, which seems like far too little money for something so pretty, in my opinion.
Missy’s Crafty Mess: It’s the end of August and, I don’t know about you, but I’m in firm denial that there is any such thing as winter. Psychologically, I can work around this denial by telling myself that the sweaters, shawls and mitts on my needles are meant for crisp autumn mornings or for camping in the mountains. Missy doesn’t seem to have this problem. In the middle of summer she’s posting pictures of balaclavas and referring to winter as an impending event. I don’t know if that’s practical or depressing. None the less, she seems to be a balaclava knitting machine.
Flip Coast Creations: This crafter finds excuses to craft things out of any material to-hand. On a recent glamping trip (glam camping), they made their own wooden spatula and a truly cunning whittled Gandalf-stick. That’s talent!
