Weekend Favorites

It’s been a chilly week in New Jersey. We’ve had the fire going a few times, and (as you can see below) I’ve spent plenty of cozy time with my laptop flipping through Flickr. So many seasonal shots to enjoy!

Around the Web

I spend some time earlier in the week sharing my favorite crafty links through social media. And then I repeat them here on Fridays.

  • Cosy Blanket CAL – a laid-back crochet-along with Attic24. Lucy is hosting this blanket-making crochet-along, featuring her signature bright colors and a simple-but-attractive stitch pattern that looks pretty simple to grasp even for beginners.
  • Learn to Knit a Raglan Cardigan – a video tutorial from Very Pink Knits, via Lion Brand Notebook. I’ve referred to Very Pink Knits on YouTube many times when I’ve wanted to figure out a knitting technique that puzzled me. I think she’d be an excellent teacher, if you wanted to learn to knit your first sweater…
  • 10 Gifts to Sew + Give for Winter Warmth – a timely round-up from Sew Mama Sew. Sew Mama Sew is in the midst of their month of gift-giving roundups, and this particular entry spoke to me today. Our high temperature is supposed to be somewhere around 29 degrees. Brrr. So, Winter Warmth? Yes, please!
  • This Father Creates Powerful Dreams For His Daughter – amazing photography shared by F Stop Lounge. Wow. These images are really cool. I think my favorite is the one with the little girl taking a nap on the wing of an airplane in flight, but really it’s hard to choose. They’re all so fantastical and yet they look so real.

Happy Friday – stay cozy!
