Incredibly, a few weeks ago this blog eclipsed the five thousand followers mark.  I am so incredibly happy, and humbled, that you are all here!

I can’t do a giveaway to mark the occasion because I gave away all my extra yarn a few months ago on this blog’s first anniversary.  ;)  But in lieu of a giveaway, I thought I’d give out some recommendations for other (better???) crafting blogs as a thank you, so that my lovely followers can fill their dashes with more, crafty goodness.

This is by no means an exhaustive list because there are literally thousands of wonderful crafting blogs on tumblr!  And my not including any particular craft blog on this list is not meant in any way as a slight.  But, the following listed blogs are the ones I routinely check, and they are all very high quality, 100% craft blogs with a strong (in most cases exclusive) emphasis on the fiber arts:

For your anon about Amy Pond's scarf: Unfortunately I couldn't find a crochet pattern, but there are knitting patterns both for the red lace scarf and the black and gray striped scarf that the character wore in various Dr. Who episodes. At Ravelry, do a Pattern Search on Amy Pond's Scarf, there are 8 results. Have a great day!

I’m so happy you like the blog!  :)

Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a crochet pattern like that.  Sorry I can’t be of more help.  Perhaps one of my followers knows of one?

So way back in December I made a post about some gorgeous wool I got for a shawl, and half a year later, here it is! I actually finished the main body of it in February, then didn’t get round to doing the leaves on the top border ‘til around Easter, and its taken me another few months to get round to taking photos! (And clearly a boiling hot day is the best day to stand in the sun with a woolly shawl around you… I do question my sanity sometimes) But isn’t it pretty? :)

I used this pattern for the shawl, and the only alteration was adding the leaves on the top edge.

Electricity, a free knitting pattern from Rhona R.
