She’s working on it.

Time for this little poochie and all the pets of the world to milk this moment and let us bi-peds do a little more to show them just how much they’re appreciated. SMPCRAFT scoured the web to find DIY pet projects and crafts (cat, rabbit, and dog treats, too!) to honor our furry, feathered, scaled, and slithering loved ones.

YARN UTOPIA

“A world full of color,” said 20th century Austrian artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser, “is synonymous with paradise.”

WORD.

These days, we have artists engaging in Yarnbombing, Yarnstorming, Guerilla Crocheting, Knitifitti, and Knitting Graffiti to thank for a peek at Paradise.

The Craft Yarn Council: #STITCHITFORWARD #ILYD2015

SMPCRAFT loves I LOVE YARN DAY, which turns five this year on Saturday, October 17. To celebrate, The Craft Yarn Council is “calling all fiber fans to share their affection for yarn and ‘stitch it forward’ by teaching at least one newbie to knit, crochet, weave, spin or bomb. Whatever craft it may be…if it involves yarn, we know we love it, we know you love it, and we know others will too!”

To join the fun, which includes ideas on how to stitch it forward, free patterns, contests, giveaways, and more, click the image above or visit www.craftyarncouncil.com!
