Fox Yarn sent me some of their T-Shirt yarn to test out (in exchange for my honest review).

I loved working with it. The color selection is awesome and the yarn is soft and sturdy. It’s perfect for baskets, purses, and other objects where you need structure.

In Love With These Blocking Mats

I was sent these Blocking Mats by WooLove to test out for free.

I am in love with these things, they are my new go-to mat for blocking everything. I won’t spoil the review with spoilers, but I love the grid lines!

I used these to block the Sweet Stripes Hooded Scarf so you’ll see a cameo of the scarf in the video. See why these are my new favorites by watching the video above.

Octopus Free Crochet Pattern Tutorial

The second free pattern was something I asked my Facebook followers about.

I’ve been reading some articles where NICUs are using crochet octopuses to comfort the babies. They believe the tentacles remind the baby of being in the womb with the umbilical cord. Plus the tentacles keep the baby from pulling on the wires they might have connected to their tiny bodies. It is really amazing!

Facebook said, “YES!” when I asked if they would like a pattern and video to help support, so here it is. Of course, I’m not a medical expert, so ask your local hospital if they would like these before donating.

Bonus use though: my cats love this! It’s made in one full piece so no worry of the tentacles coming loose.

Download the pattern, watch the video and get some links to news articles about the octopuses here.
