Weekend Favorites

Another Friday, another Weekend Favorites post I’m scribbling down an hour after it was supposed to be published…

Been busy this week, folks! The crochet hooks have been keeping me on my toes, and I’ve been trying to catch up on some household stuff I have been letting slip. That reminds me, I can’t really hang out here right now. There’s a load of laundry that needs me. Desperately.

I will save my words for tomorrow’s TWiP post 🙂

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.

  • Helix Mitts – a clever knitting pattern from Knitting and so on. I’ve spent enough time wandering around Ravelry to know that there are only so many ways to construct a fingerless glove. This one, though is totally a new one on me. It’s quite clever! And being all in garter stitch, I imagine it’s a pretty quick knit, too.
  • How to make a crochet rug – a free pattern from Mollie Makes. This is cool. I could see using one of these in front of the kitchen sink, or next to the bed. I wonder if working a project this big would be hard on the hands. Anyone have any experience with something like this?
  • Pallet Christmas Tree – a neat idea from Redhead Can Decorate. As someone who finds the process of putting up the Christmas tree and taking it down again to be rather a chore, I am really attracted to this idea. Someday when the kids leave the nest, I am switching to a flat tree 🙂
  • Scandinavian-Inspired DIY Plywood Tree – from Dans le Lakehouse. Here’s another flat tree project. I don’t like this one quite as much as the last, although I think there’s a lot of potential there, with the right paint and the right decorations. This one is a little sparsely decorated for my taste.

Happy Friday!!
