Rwanda Knits Project

It's time again for the Rwanda Knits Project Benefit Auction! and it starts tonight! The Rwanda Knits Project is the beloved brainchild of Cari Clement of Caron Yarns. Cari blogs about this month's auction here on her latest blog post. Scroll down past the patterns to read about it. Cari's segment on Rwanda Knits is right below the Cusco Leg Warmers designed by one of my favorite designers, Margret Willson!
You can bid on and win (if you are so lucky!), a knitted or crocheted item from one of your favorite designers and help a wonderfully, worthy cause at the same time. For knitters and crocheters who love to give, it just doesn't get any better than that! The auction runs from today, October 16 through October 26 at 8:30pm and will offer one-of-a-kind knitted and crocheted wearables and home-dec items from top designers. If you click Rwanda Knits anytime between today at 11pm ET and October 26, there will be a direct link to the AUCTION on the left side of the page. I can't wait to see what will be offered! Good luck and happy bidding!
Pin It!

Annie's Attic Free Pattern of the Day

Did you know that Annie's Attic offers a free pattern for download every day? Incredibly, it is a different pattern each day from their huge archives and sometimes it is even a pattern that would still normally be for sale. The catch is that it is only available for one day. When it is gone, it is gone! Here is the direct link to their daily free pattern:
Annie's Attic Free Crochet Pattern of the Day
If you are lucky enough to read this today, you will see that they are offering a very famous pattern for free! The pattern today is the Black and White Baby Tennis Shoes originally designed by Annie Potter! I think every crocheter is familiar with this pattern! Annie Potter, her Baby Bootie Boutique, and her company, Annie's Attic, revolutionized the crochet industry in the late 70's. Thankfully, crochet is still going strong and better than ever!
Get your bootie pattern today before it is gone!
