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!

Free Pattern Friday: Quadrat Blanket

We're starting a new feature here on the blog - Free Pattern Friday! Once in a while, on a Friday, we'll feature a free pattern, new or old, and tell you all about it! This week we've got the Quadrat Blanket, so stunning, and so fast to make! The geometric texture of this blanket works up quickly with super bulky yarn and large needles, giving you a beautiful throw that will add warmth to any room in your home. Quadrat is made in Tuff Puff Yarn (I'd choose Mint for a bold pop of color) but if you're trying to stash bust, why not hold two strands of a worsted weight together and see if you get gauge? Whatever size you come up with, this blanket will making coming home on chilly evenings, just a bit more pleasurable.
