Back to school means back to knitting

There’s something about fall that makes me want to cocoon at home and make warm woolly things. I’ve finished a top-down knit raglan pullover sweater for my daughter, a bunch of hats (knitted and crocheted), and slippers too. My other daughter asked for a raglan cardigan in a sparkly yarn, and that one is nearly finished. She is just deciding on a few customizations. I finally finished this toque (a toque is a winter hat, for all you non-Canadians), made of springy Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran superwash merino (luxury!).

Upcoming: Craft Daily Trial Subscription Review

Are online crafting videos worth the subscription price? Blueberry Creek Crafts puts it to the test. Many companies, like Interweave, Craftsy, and Craft Daily, offer pay-per-view online video instruction for knitting and crochet. I originally wanted to watch the Knitting Daily TV series, now available through Knitting Daily. The first season is on Craft Daily, along with many other workshops by famous names like Doris Chan and Lily Chin. I subscribed for one month. My trial is in progress – I’ll report back after a month with what I’ve found useful, what wasn’t worth the money, and an overall rating.

 

Frozen-Inspired Halloween Hats

I thought we were Frozen-ed out here at home, but as soon as my daughters saw these Anna and Elsa costume hats on the Hopeful Honey blog, they told me I HAD to make them!

There’s a lot going on here at Blueberry Creek Crafts, and I hope you’ll join me.
