I love Laurel Hill’s knitting needles. I’ve gotten a bunch of gorgeous strait needles from their awesome clearance sales.
They seem to be more into crochet hooks than knitting needles. Evidence, they are starting drawings for free crochet hooks! There are even free SETS of crochet hooks.

This is in line with so many of my interests. Also, this would be amazing in a kid’s room. Throw some glow in the dark stars on the ceiling, this rug on the floor, and suddenly we don’t have to worry about monsters in the dark.
Two exciting things today! I got a loom knitting set. I’m excited to begin working on it. I’ve done one small practice baby hat and I gotta say, I like that my worrying about whether something is uniform is much less with a loom.
The second exciting thing: This picture! I’ve been wanting to make my own scrunchies using crochet, and I saw this yarn and HAD to try it. OMG I LOVE IT! I’m actually wearing this scrunchy tonight!
I have 2 questions:
I’m curious, if you loom, how do you tuck the ends as invisibly as possible?
What do you think of the scrunchy?
The scrunchy is absolutely awesome!
I haven’t loomed in many years, so I don’t remember what I did with the ends. I would think that duplicate stitch would work though.
In other news, LOOK AT THAT SCRUNCHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In our yarn escapades we have come across two skeins of finger weight cotton yarn.
Does anyone have experience with cotton? Items they prefer to use them with?
I suppose I will put on my ‘creative uses’ hat and find something to do with them.
Ideas are appreciated!
I make a lot of things that I want to be able to throw into the washing machine with cotton yarn. So, kitchen stuff, like dishcloths, towels, dish scrubbies, etc. Also rugs. Cotton is awesome for bathmats. I also make bags with it. Oh, dog sweaters.
Remember that it has no give. It can be really unforgiving if you are making something that needs a very specific gauge.

This is soooooo very cool. It is one of those things that made me wish my crochet skills were slightly more than basic.
The tutorial looks well written too. Click through the picture for it.
Look at this knitting tote bag! I want this soo much. Why is my birthday so far away?
This is beyond awesome!
These are super cute. They would make awesome dish scrubbies.
I’m knitting pokemon plushies that I’m possibly going to sell in the future in some anime convention (or online if I can find some site where I can sell stuff).
I started with Swablu just because I wanted to try using that white fluffy yarn.
These are amazingly cute.
Oh Tumblr, you make me want to read some Discworld and make some Discworld crafts…
The hat is cool, the mug cozy is JUST FRICKIN’ AWESOME!!!!!
My crochet skills are minimal at best, but the cuteness of these flowers and the awesome color pallet makes me want to make millions.
I dont feel okay about this one ;___;
I really like this one. I know it is a non-standard color combo, but that makes me like it even more.
