A Year’s Worth of Crocheting

We often buzz through life so quickly that we fail to appreciate all the things we’ve accomplished and become.

How to Crochet a Giant Circular Rug – No-Sew!

Due to the massive amount of requests I got for this, we simply had to make a tutorial showing you how to make your very own huge roving rug.

There are different types but it’s basically wool that’s been cleaned and prepped and now all the fibers are lining up pretty and ready for use. Normally roving is used for hand-spinners to spin into their own yarn. But today, we’re […]
