Knit and Crochet Ever After

Motif of the Month and 4th Month Knitcrate Newbies

I’ve been busy this past month remodeling our kitchen, pantry and laundry room (still not done). So, though I did upload the motif of the month yesterday (which was the last day of April), I only had time today to put out a post today. So here is the “April” motif:


This is the Traveling Square Motif and it’s made with super bulky yarn. I used a smaller hook to make it very dense and warm. You can use a larger hook to give more drape to the square.

I also got my latest Knitcrate Newbies and made the project (twice). Check out the video below to see what I got and how I did making the project.

    Hi Deja,
    After watching your videos I took the plunge and ordered my first KnitCrate Newbies. I have been trying to learn to knit for a very long time, and you inspired me to try again and I cannot wait! However, I forgot to use the promo code. Do you get a special credit when that is used? If so, I will try to contact the co. and see if it can be fixed. I did notify them that I learned about them through your website, but I am not sure that counts. Love your stuff. Just bought your slipper pattern from amazon. Starting them today!

Let me know what you think
