So, Allison from CRAFTYisCOOL
teamed up with Clara from 6060eyes
to create an amigurumi of the toy bear from the film. The bears are being made and sent to orphans in Russia through the charity To Russia with Love
. To find out more about this project and the free pattern
for the bear check out this post
from Allison's blog. If you make a bear, snap a photo and add it to our Charity Work Folder
before you send it off!
I found a blog this week called The Menagerie
Victoria is an American model that is currently living/working abroad, but don't let that keep you away from checking out her cute blog. She is just as much of a yarn nerd as all of us. She shares her knitting, crochet and baking, plus really pretty pictures of Europe!
Social media features deviantArtists! Are you following Lion Brand Yarn
?? Well, if you are, you've noticed them feature SparklyStash
recently! Pretty cool. Get out there and connect! dAKnitters
has recently been revived by it's new Co-Founders, check out their group and the great prizes from their latest contest- including a feature from me!
If you've been knitting or crocheting around dA for awhile, you probably agree that it's great to see this group going again.-Brooke
