In the past two months, in addition to lots of other books I reviewed over on Mystery of a Shrinking Violet, I tried out a number of books about crochet, which is a craft I love, but it had been so long since I’ve crocheted that I felt I needed a refresher. I crocheted a lot when I was young, but had to give it up in my 30s due to tendinitis. I want to take crochet up again in a small way.
I don’t know if you’ve been following Arne & Carlos on YouTube recently, but I’m loving their thrift shop visits. Arne has been buying partially-completed stitching projects and finishing them, with his own unique changes that update them and make them special.
If you haven’t found Fruity Knitting on YouTube, you might want to. I’ll feature most of my knitting favorites in this blog, eventually. Sometimes that will be in the form of lists of YouTube channels, or blogs. or books. Sometimes it will be a single entry that focuses on one special resource. I will of course also share some of my own knitting. Today I’m happy to steer you toward this mother-daughter team, who have recently featured some yarn producers and knitters in and around Prince Edward Island.
