Doing a podcast interview is probably the scariest yarn-related activity I can participate in. I used to hate the sound of my own voice, and although I have gotten more used to hearing it ‘on air’, I still wouldn’t go as far as to say that I like it. Not only do I dislike listening […]
It is not easy balancing work, life, kids, and crafts. Join me as I (self-consciously) discuss how I attempt to do this with Marie Segares from Creative Yarn Entrepreneur.
Zoe the crochet zebra’s ears and legs are joined as you go, making for very little sewing indeed. Her moveable limbs mean that she can sit, stand, and lie down with ease. She has a very large head, making her more of a grazing Zebra than a graceful one. Zoe is the fourth animal in […]
Here is one juice box craft that will take you hardly any time to do: A Chalkboard Juice Box Village, perfect for drawing on and playing with.

The Crochet Cow Puzzle is based on the original Crochet Amish Puzzle Ball, and as such comes apart into 3 segments, or rings, which then have to be re-assembled […]
