knit + crochet design week: daily reads.

yesterday for day 2 of knit + crochet design week i mentioned wanting to share my favorite knitting + crochet daily reads, so now that i have a few minutes let's run through a few...

designers, spinners, dyers, and all around inspiring people...

Good Knits: Lisa of Good Knits is so incredibly inspiring. i haven't quite graduated myself to lace patterns yet but her booklet (available in print or pdf) Lace Love is where i plan to start. her designs are fantastic. Lisa shares phenomenal diys on her blog, you may remember her pattern that i used to create a princess ornament wreath for little miss this holiday season. today she happened to write a great post that fits right into knit + crochet design week... crochet: chain circle vs magic loop

Fresh Stitches: i've talked about Stacey A LOT on here so far... Stacey's blog offers beautiful knits and crocheted cuties, yarn info, book & mag reviews, patterns, tips & techniques, and so much more!

Hello Yarn: Adrian is a dyer & spinner and offers her yarns through a monthly yarn club. her site also offers patterns (with some free ones in there too!) although i haven't had the opportunity to work with her yarn yet i adore her colorways and the pieces she knits up are so amazing.

Wise Craft: Blair is another lifestyle blogger who crochets pretty things and makes beautiful quilts. i love her monthly inspiration wallpapers.

Olavas Verden: so many bright colors and beautiful granny squares on Olava's blog. she has beautiful patterns for floral pot holders that i've been meaning to try for so long. i think they would be just gorgeous in a blanket. oh, and the blog is in Norwegian so you'll have to use google translate to read it, that is unless you understand Norsk.

The Plucky Knitter: Sarah is another dyer/spinner who has a blog & etsy shop... she has really beautiful patterns available and i love her colorwork.

Craft. Rock. Blog.:  this is Vickie Howell's blog. Vickie offers some really fantastic patterns, a few of which i've pinned to try out very soon. the 'baby's first ripple blanket' i'm working on is based on her chevy baby blanket.

manufacturer and shop blogs...

The Purl Bee: this is the blog and pattern notebooks for Purl Soho, a yarn & fabric store here in NYC. the purl bee offers tips, yarn & product spotlights, and lots and lots of knitting + crochet patterns and inspiration.

Lion Brand Notebook: the Lion Brand blog offers tips, designer and book spotlights, announces new patterns & yarns, hosts knit-a-longs and much more.

Spud & Chloƫ: i love S+C yarns. on their blog they share new color releases, patterns, and even do the occasional giveaway!

so those are some of the blogs i visit regularly... i'd love to hear about your favorite knitting + crochet daily reads so please share!
