Cook ups with friends, dancing at your niece’s wedding, real freakin’ life hugs, the IRL (in real life) season has begun! With that comes more occasions to gift loved ones, more netflix and knitting downtime needed to recharge, and a whole lotta DIY home decor to play hostess with the mostess. Of course, we’re taking heed, we’re still sewing facemasks aplenty, finding cute ways to carry our essentials - hello sausage dog sanitizer cover, and lots of us, including the LoveCrafts crew, are working from home if we can (rocking the WFH wardrobe, naturally). Read on for the best of the new in knitting patterns and latest crochet patterns.
