Easter Basket Crochet and Knit

by Kelly

Easter means different things for different people. For me, as a kid, it was all about an Easter basket full of chocolate, jelly beans, and the occasional stuffed bunny or yellow chick. Sometimes there would be a single Cadbury Creme Egg hidden somewhere in the green plastic grass...until that memorable Easter Sunday when I discovered that Cadbury Eggs were too sweet for me. That was my first clue that I was growing up.

If you're feeling brave, check out this link for Cadbury Creme Egg recipes...especially interesting is the Cadbury Creme Egg Benedict.

Of course, spring also means the first flowers of the year...

Blah, blah, blahhhg

Amigurumi Animation

by Kelly

I've always loved visiting Mochimochi Land (which strangely enough isn't about Japanese mochi)for the cute crochet creations and tutorials on how to make them. She also has kits, like the one pictured below, available for her teeny amigurumi creatures.

Now, however, there's another reason to stop in regularly - amigurumi animations!

When I visited on Christmas day, I saw this cute Santa animation. And the trend continues! Visit her blog to see more, including a new Valentine's day animation, involving candy hearts and mini cupids. Too cute!

Shop Favorites

by Kelly

During our recent giveaway, we asked people to pick a favorite item from our shop. Surprisingly, almost everything in our shop was someone's favorite, but by far the favoritest favorite of all was Stephanies' White Spiral Afghan.

Second runner up were Dawn's Spa Scented Washcloths.

Many people asked how these were made. Her method is actually quite clever. Go to this post to see what she did...
