I’m honoring National Craft Month by posting something crafty that catches my eye every weekday. Share your favorite crafty finds in the comments!

I love Crochet By Faye‘s idea for celebrating National Craft Month – adopt a designer!

You can read all the details in her post. The general idea is to pick a designer every day for the rest of the month and do something to help them succeed: blog about them, recommend them, buy a pattern!

I love this idea and will be incorporating here my already-planned National Craft Month blogging. I'm also going to spend the month looking for more designers to feature in my bricks+mortar shop, A Novel Yarn.

If you know of a designer (especially one that works with handspun or handdyed yarn), let me know in the comments!

    Cosy! I'm thinking you probably already know her well, but in case not! She works with (and makes!) Handspun, hand-dyed, recycled yarn, super cute and creative designs…. Right up your alley I think!

    Thanks!
    I actually “celebrated” her last week on my yarn shop's blog, because we just got her patterns in.

    You're right, she's fabulous!
