(Everything falls into the “making” category this week, so I made a couple sub-sections.)


In the realm of ‘crochet as art’ Caitlin McCormack’s beautifully macabre pieces.

A beautiful description about the process and care that goes into spinning & knitting A’Nead’s cobweb weight knitwear.

“Gratitude is the Attitude” from Getting Purly With It.
