Mini Sweater Pin Loom Day 2020

There is no first place without a second place, as a chilean saying says.. The Mini Sweater Pin Loom Day 2020 campaign is already open! Second year of this creative celebration!

There is crochet day, a knitting day, but what about weaving?

Well, that is what I though last year and invited my weaving author and friend Meg Stump to join me on this adventure, by inviting every enthusiastic pin loom weaver we know to be a part of this creative initiative.

It ended up in an amazing call! and we hope this year it goes even better.

Do you want to join us? I invite you to know all the details in this post ๐Ÿ™‚

Sustainable Infinity Scarf project

It has been a while since I bought some @ecocitex yarns and I didnยดt know what to make with them. Sure, the decision was not easy if I wanted to make them worth, because they do the incredible work of protecting the planet!

I am not really a green peace person, I have to confess, but I cannot be unconnected to what they do, because it is simply IMPRESSIVE.

Read this story about how recycling and buying recycled products I could achieve this gorgeous Sustainable Infinity Scarf made in a square pin loom. You can learn how to diy of course ๐Ÿ™‚

Let`s go!

Together during Quarantine

Lately I have been hearing that so known phrase “we are stronger together” or “the union makes as strong” so many times that I thought giving it a try, stop being an hermit-crafter and start making bigger projects by recruiting more crafters and working together.

But.. it is not that simple. I have tried it a few times so far and it havenยดt been easy at all. There is a thing with each ones schedule, a lack of trust (sometimes we just dont know each other enough) and certaintly and ego matter. Yes, it is always around when making artistic or creative projects.

So I wanted to contact Ely, who is the founder and designer behind @mora_tejidos

I have been folowing her from a while, she has achieved a huge audience who share her crochet passion, particulary granny square.

I invite you to keep reading this story ๐Ÿ™‚

About unpredictable inspiration

I hope you are already used to this situation we are now living. It is true that humans easily adapt, I`ve seen it in so many examples lately!

What I bring to you today has a lot to do with adaptation but also erratic, unpredictable inspiration, as I call it. Maybe it is just common inspiration, but when it comes this way, from nowhere, I just need to name it differently!

I invite you to see this new “quarentistic” erratic and free design I have created this week, in which you will be able to use spare yarn from here and there at home or order some yarn from your favorite local provider, who is maybe struggling to keep her business standing.

Let`s see!

Color and design from isolation

Facing this unpleasant quarentine, that tonight turns into a total quarantine here where I live, the best idea I have found to deal with this is creating, creating and inviting you to create too!

I do this for myself, for you, and for all the isolated women around the world who desperate need a zen moment. To let their creativity flow, forget about the exterior and focus on the interior. To breathe..

In this post I am sharing with you another FOREVER FREE tool for you to print, re print, share all you want, transmiting creativity. Let`s see!

3Birds Tapestry crochet pattern set

I have always said nature is an endless resource.. of inspiration!

But this time I didn`t want to make a flower-inspired design (as I usually do). I searched a bit and run into Latin American birds. I found there an amazing world to explore and share with you.

It wasn`t simple to pass the design I had in mind into a tapestry crochet template. It is not something you just copy from one format to another. But I finally achieved something I am fully pleased about ๐Ÿ™‚

Come and join me reading the full process, you are welcome!
