Crochet Stegosaurus Cube - Pops de Milk

Stuart the Crochet Stegosaurus

In our home, at the height of summer, when it gets really hot and the house plants flourish, I sometimes see a strange creature rummaging through the basil, or chewing on the stems of our English Ivy. It’s hard to make out what exactly it is because it moves so fast, but if I didn’t know […]

The Big Acorn Race

Last year, my dear friend Jennifer from Squirrel Picnic asked me if I would test a pattern for a crochet book she was working on. I was so excited to hear that she was working on a book and I happily agreed! Jennifer’s patterns are super clear and easy to follow. I tested the pattern […]
