Free Pattern Friday – Toasty Toes!

Socks are, in my humble opinion, the perfect summer project. Small, portable, and fun - they're constantly on my needles all year long. Also, since I love knitting with wool, they're light enough so I'm not dying of heat while working on them, like I would be with a heavier project. Plus, they are something I can wear right away instead of waiting until the weather cools enough for sweaters. Well, if you are looking for some fun sock patterns to try out this summer, look no further than Toasty Toes! While you can get this gorgeous collection in book and eBook form for a low price, each of these 12 patterns are available for download for free!

Crochet the Jazz Age Washcloth!

Have you downloaded the Jazz Age Crochet Washcloth pattern yet? I have, and like many people somewhat new to crochet, I was not very confident that I have what it takes to make one. If this sounds like you, fear no more! We have a new video tutorial that will teach you all the key steps to crocheting your very own Jazz Age Washcloth. So grab some yarn (any will do, though the pattern suggests CotLin and that's what Jenny uses for the video), a crochet hook (we use a 4mm hook, though gauge isn't so important for a washcloth), watch the tutorial, and complete your very own Jazz Age Washcloth!

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! Around here, many of us are taking part in various activities around in our area and we hope you will be doing the same. But reducing our impact on the environment happens year round  - and we have a few projects that can help! First of all - dishcloths! Using dishcloths rather than disposable products creates less waste for our landfills.  We have over 100 free patterns, in both knit and crochet for you to enjoy - including one with a nifty recycle symbol - The Three R's Dishcloth!

The Queen Jane Blanket
Dishcloth Remix: The Queen Jane Blanket

suspect the reason I love making blankets so much is that they are basically grown up dishcloths. You get the ease of a dishcloth pattern (think: no shaping!) but the pizazz the size of a blanket affords. This lovely lace pattern is the free Jazz Age dishcloth from our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths: A Kitchen Spectacular. I named it Queen Jane in honor of my little niece who was born just this week. Her adorable siblings held a coronation to install her as High Queen of the Home. Once the bitty Queen is big enough, she'll claim this blanket as her rightful own!
