Friday Favorites

Hi everyone! Starting today and every Friday, I will be listing some “wish list” favorites that I’ve come across that I would love to either buy or crochet.

The first thing on my list is to pick up the crochet issue of Vogue Knitting sometime this weekend. I am always happy when these issues come out and really inspire me! (click here for the link to the website to check it out)


A must have this weekend is a CD from the newly formed band called The Olms. The band consists of indie rocker Pete Yorn and guitarist/art illustrator J.D. King. Their music has a very vintage sound to it (think 1960’s garage rock with a touch of the Beach Boys thrown in).  They co-wrote all of the songs, and to me, it’s the perfect music choice for summer!  You can find out more about them on their website at

Those are the two major things I want to pick up this weekend. As for yarn, that will have to wait a while. I still have a large container full of yarn given to me a few months ago that hasn’t been touched, and I am working on the sweater shown below for my sister-in-law. I haven’t made an adult-sized sweater, so this will be a major challenge for me but I’m up to it! I need to get out of my comfort zone sometime! You can click on the pic for the pattern at Caron’s website:


And that’s it for this weekend, what will you be working on and buying?

Have a good one!
