As a member of CGOA, I am thrilled to participate in this years NatCroMo Blog Tour, hosted by Crochetville. You can find all the blog links for this year’s tour, here. In honor of National Crochet Month, please consider donating to our sponsored charity, Project Night Night. This wonderful organization exists to provide bedtime care packages to homeless children across the country. They accept crocheted and knitted blankets as donations, so get stitching!
I would also like to offer a free pattern which I have designed especially for this event. If you have read my blog before, you know I love to spin on a drop spindle. Usually, I spin fine to super fine singles with wool or mohair and ply using the Andean method. In honor of CGOA and National Crochet Month, I spun up some soft wool top in a beautiful ocean green for my offering today, Handspun Baby Socks.
