Friday Finds /2

I have loved reading Teacher Tom’s blog for quite a few years. Some of you may know that I briefly ran my own Family Day Care (when I still lived in London, before Max was born). Tom’s blog always made me think about how I approached working with the young children that were in my care. Always thought provoking. Go check him out, you won’t be disappointed!

From Mollie Makes, these crochet blankets are a bit special. Click through to the patterns!

More crochet, in German this time. I adore this simple idea of making earrings from Mein gehäkeltes Herz.

The KnitPick team talking about yarn, what could be better? Especially when they are talking about all the information to keep in mind when shopping for yarn, specifically what you need to know about fiber content and ply. They answer questions like what is micro countwhich yarns have the best drape and even what is yarn?

Have you heard of visible mending? I just love the idea. Visible mending is when you fix a garment (whether it’s a hole in a sock or a rip in your jeans) but keep the repairs visible. It reminds me of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.
