When we are looking for inspiration and new patterns or techniques to try, we often turn to one of our favourite blogs. There are so many knit and crochet bloggers out there that have so much to offer us – an invaluable resource to every yarn-based crafter.
Here are a few of our favourites which we hope you will enjoy.
We have followed Kate Davies’ blog practically since she started. Her designs are iconic and she is so good at explaining her inspiration so that you feel really involved in each project. But more than that, her posts that look at the history of knitting are brilliantly researched and always add to our knowledge. Oh and don’t forget the fun posts from her dog, Bruce, as he cavorts around the Scottish hills.
Sarah from Crafts from the Cwtch is one of the bright young stars of craft blogging. She writes
mainly about knitting but the odd bit of sewing does creep in – not surprising really since her mother appeared on the Great British Sewing Bee. The word Cwtch is welsh and means cuddle or cubbyhole. At the moment she is featuring a top up sock with after-thought heel tutorial so head over there if you want some guidance.
Cherry Heart is a wonderfully cheerful blog written by Sandra, a stay at home mum. Her adventures in craft are entertaining and we love her crochet designs. Her first loves now are knitting, crochet and thinking up new yarnie ideas – her passion for her craft really comes across in her blog.
