Ready for another dishcloth pattern? The Willow Dishcloth features two beautiful stitches; the hurdle stitch and the seed stitch. I combined both together for a fun, textured dishcloth that is quick to make and practical in your kitchen.Read more
Hey guys! In this post I’m going to be sharing all my favorite yarn and tools that I use regularly. I plan to share more behind the scenes in future posts, but this one will mainly cover yarn, hooks and needles, and a couple other things I use almost daily!
I have been crocheting and knitting for almost forever, but when I really started to get back into it after college, I pretty much used whatever yarn I could find. I mostly shopped at Walmart and Michaels for yarn, and I still do sometimes! But after about 7+ years of what some (my husband) may call a yarn addiction (LOL) I have narrowed down my absolute favorites.
Now if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I absolutely love and use hand dyed yarn whenever I can afford it. I mean, it’s just so pretty! And I also love to support my friends who are indie dyers. I am also quite obsessed with KnitPicks yarn and use it all the time. I use a lot of “cheap” yarn because I don’t think the price necessarily determines the quality and there is some really great affordable yarn out there.
I get a lot of questions about my needles so I’ll be sharing those and some other random tools I think are essential as well. Hope this helps you on your maker journey!
So let’s jump right in!Read more
Hey guys! I’m back with another gift guide and this time it’s for Father’s Day! I know some people complain about men being the hardest to buy for, but I think they’re actually the easiest! I always have so much fun picking unique gifts for the dudes in my family, but I like to steer away from clothes or cheesy gifts and usually head to Etsy for something classy and unique.
I have personally purchased and given every single one of these items except for two, so I’ll be upfront about which ones those are in the descriptions. I hope you enjoy what I’ve put together. Let me know if you purchase one of these gifts for someone you know!Read more
Hi! Since I have not formally introduced myself on here yet, I thought I would do a quick introduction and Q&A post. I shared a question box on Instagram and had you submit questions, so I’ll be answering some of those here!Read more
Here’s another one for the knitters! This is the sister pattern to my Redbud Dishcloth crochet pattern. My favorite thing about this pattern is that the texture looks really detailed, but it’s actually super quick and easy!Read more
How big is your stash of scrap yarn? I’ve been guilty of just letting it sit around and then tossing it (don’t judge) – but no more! I’ve gathered a list of some of my favorite patterns from designers I know and trust that will help you use those pretty scraps you’ve been saving for something special!
If you make one of these patterns with your scraps, let me know by tagging me in a story on IG @kneedlesandlove. And of course tag the designer as well. We would love to see!Read more
Guess what? I FINALLY design a knitted dishcloth pattern! I will admit I still prefer crocheting with cotton yarn, but I am so obsessed with how this turned out and I think it will be so cute in so many kitchens! If you’ve never knit a bobble before, don’t freak out! I’ve got you covered with a video I created! BUT, if you have knitted a bobble before, please make sure you take a look too. There are many ways to knit a bobble so it might be different than what you’re used to!
Make sure you also read through the abbreviations and notes before jumping in! Happy knitting!Read more
Hey there! The special day is quickly approaching and you have obviously stumbled upon this post because you’re doing some Mother’s Day shopping and need some ideas! I’ve done my research and made a list of affordable gifts on Etsy (my favorite website) I think any mom would love to have. Some of these I have received myself, or given as a gift, so you can trust my review!
My husband and I usually set a budget of around $25 for gifts for each other on holidays so I have done my best to find items that would fit into that category, but a few may be a bit more expensive. I’ve included items that are specifically “mom” themed, and other’s that aren’t because not every gal likes showing off her mom status on everything she owns and that’s totally ok!
I personally love to give unique, handmade gifts that not only support small business but will be special for the person receiving the gift. So that is exactly what you will find in this guide!
Hope this helps!

Last year I had my very first baby and when you’re a first time mom, there’s a lot of trial and error involved. You rely mostly on recommendations from friends, family and the occasional blog post you stumble upon on Pinterest (like this one LOL).
There’s things you know you will need when having a baby like a newborn carseat, crib, diapers, onesies, etc. But what about the random items you forget about in the craziness of getting ready for a tiny human being to enter your life?
We tried a lot of different bottles, diapers, swaddles, etc. before finding what we liked. I feel like my Amazon Prime order history for the first few months was a lot of 3am desperation orders for whatever google recommended might make my life easier.Read more
