Each month, I host a crochet related event in my group YARNutopia World. Over this past weekend, I hosted The Good Intentions Event where everyone virtually attended to use a special yarn they have kept for that “someday” project.
We have a great time connecting during these events. I always do a live lunchtime discussion and Q&A as well as stay online most of the weekend to interact and enjoy the event with a myriad of activities.
For this weekend’s game, I created a gallery of macro photos of items that are related to crochet. Below you can find the photos that I posted. Try guessing these yourself. Answer key is posted at the bottom if you get stumped.
Be sure to attend our events in the future and you, too, can enjoy some crochet camaraderie with everyone who attends!
We are launching our 12 Days of Christmas crafts with a beautiful handmade bookmark. Do you know someone who loves to read? For all the book lovers in your life, you can make this beautiful Shell Stitch Lace Bookmarker. Pair this with a best seller book and you will be sure to awe the most distinguished book enthusiast on your list!
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
