Just as it says on the cover, the projects in this book are, “SUPER HAPPY CROCHET CUTE”! I *heart* amiguumi crochet and this book feeds the fires of that love. With patterns for everything from cupcake to hep cat, if you’re looking for crocheted cuties then this book’s for you! Personal fave: Punk Bunny (2nd from left on cover).
Simple Gifts to Stitch, by Jocelyn WorrallThis is one of the books I’ve recently procured, that has me sniffling over my broken sewing machine. Simple Gifts has a ton of totally do-able, actually usable, sewn gift ideas. Projects range from a discotastic Spiral Change Purse, to a fairytale worthy Imp Hat. Must…start…sewing…again. Personal faves: Stitched wrapping paper and Peeps-esque terry cloth bunny.
Knit Wit Note Cards
This may be the age of e-communication but now more than ever, I’m a sucker for stationary! Hand-made and adorable, these cards make the perfect topper for all of your knitted gifts. Personal fave: knitting birdie.
Once again Annie uses her costume designer’s background to tailor knitted garments that each tell a story of their own. This book’s projects range from floor-length skirts to flirty hats, with an epic tale’s worth of delicate delights in between! Personal fave: Some Like it Hot opera gloves.
One of my most favorite things in the whole wide world to do, is collaborate with fellow creatives, so I was thrilled to be a part of my friend @jonas_wilson_music ‘s label, Mr. Pink Records’ holiday special. Purchase one of their artists’ cassettes (that’s right, kids, cassettes are back!) from them on Friday and get a knit cassette cozy made by me and Team YarnYAY! Go to @mr.pinkrecords profile to get the deets....
