Summer is the time when many of us take breaks from our busy lives and do a little traveling and relaxing. On this episode of YarnCraft, Liz & Zontee explore ways to work your yarncrafting into your travel plans, or for those who are planning a “staycation”, we explore ideas for making your stay a little more craft-friendly, with travel-friendly projects that are easy to make on the go.
We also talk to the hilarious writer and storyteller Michaela Murphy who joins us from Seattle. Michaela’s funny and relatable Crafté’s Inferno series can be found on CraftStylish.com and she can also be heard on the Moth Podcast for even more laugh-out-loud stories.
Patterns discussed include:
- Crochet Featherweight Granny Scarf
- Crochet Hither Green Throw
- Knit Morris Park Blanket
- Crochet Granny Square Blankets and Scarves
- Knit and crochet Washcloths
- Knit Bunny Slope Hat
- Crochet All Season Wristers
- Knit Cabled Wristlets
