Crochetville Blog Tour is here!

Welcome to Celtic Knot Crochet for the 2014 Crochetville National Crochet Month Blog Tour! 

I hope you have had  time to visit all the blogs included so far.  There are many beautiful projects and designs to see with a wide variety of neat offers, too! You can see all the posts here at: http://crochetville.com/blog/ in case you missed any.

I have met many of the designers on this tour at the annual Crochet Guild of America's annual conferences.  CGOA is a wonderful organization that provides great resources and opportunities for those who love crochet. I highly recommend joining to receive the many benefits.  (www.crochet.org) Number one benefit = Getting to meet and befriend the many talented crocheters.

In honor of the tour I am offering a this new FREE Celtic Knot crochet pattern that can be downloaded on Ravelry here - Celtic Knot Bracelet.

This bracelet is similar to another one of my designs, the Celtic Knot Belt, that can be found for FREE on Red Heart's website  here.
(Click on the page to the left, "List and Photos of Published Designs", to see other Celtic Knot Designs and where to find the patterns)

**For tips and a step-by-step photo tutorial of how to weave this knot, see the page to the left called, "Celtic Knot Belt and Bracelet Tips and Photos"**
St. Patrick's Day is in 12 days so you have time to make both quick projects in green and wear as a celebration of all that's Irish!
Speaking of quick projects, we invite you to make an animal hat to be given to Halos of Hope - the charity that Crochetville has chosen this year to promote.  Halos of Hope accepts donations of crocheted, knitted and sewn hats that are then given to hundreds of cancer treatment centers around the US. Visit this page to read more about this month's project, see links to free animal hat patterns and know where to send your hat.

Many thanks to Amy Shelton and Donna Hulka for all of their work to put this year's blog tour together! Make sure to check out tomorrow's 2 stops - Jennifer Cirka and Annette Stewart.

Buggy Puppet Washcloths

Crochet magazine recently published a Special Issue called, "Crochet in a Snap".  It is filled with a wide variety of projects that can be completed in a short amount of time.

I created these Buggy Puppet Washcloths for this issue.  Made out of Lion Brand's Kitchen Cotton, they are soft and easy to machine wash and dry.

I have always loved puppets - making my own was one of my first craft projects as a young girl.  I enjoy how you can make the animal come to life and make others laugh with its silly antics.  I thought these puppet washcloths would make a little one's bath time even more fun.

The Ladybug, Butterfly and Bumble Bee are very special bugs in our house.  When our daughters were infants, they each wore a cute 'bug costume' shown below.

Hope you have fun making these washcloths for a precious little one!
