Crochet Today

Believe it or not... I'm starting to tackle my Christmas list. No, no, not what I am asking for this year, but what would like to make family and friends for Christmas.  I know many of you crafters also need to get a head start so you can actualy enjoy the holiday season without being sleep deprived! Last year I was really struggling to find unique crochet patterns that would hit up all the personalities I wanted to crochet for until I found a copy of Crochet Today at my local box bookstore.

The magazine (supported by Red Heart yarn) has been such a HUGE source of inspiration for me. It offers hip, stylish, and young patterns that are great for kids, adults, and the home! Here are a few of their magazine covers and projects to pique your interest!

On newstands now:

Check out this bag! Perfect for summer months leading into the fall!

And did I mention the adorable home decor?

Zoo animals from the April/May issue:
(I made the panda in the upper right corner in a day! Quickest project ever!)

Anyway--I just wanted to spread the love. Their patterns are super awesome and I love each and every one of them. In fact, my co-worker Karla and I both subscribe. We carefully page through each issue and talk about how much we're drooling over the patterns.

It's a must have (or a great gift to write down on YOUR wishlist)!

P.S. Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY when I return from our honeymoon! Make sure you're a follower of my blog and the rest will be cake!
