    The pattern I'm currently working on is from Lion Brand. It's a cardigan for my DD.

    @mamasaurus12415 Ravelry is generally my first stop (I have the same un on there fyi, clearly I'm super creative with uns). However, I also look at brand websites or even just Google if I'm looking for something specific and can't find it on Ravelry. I also like to go through Knitpicks and watch for their yearly sale in Nov. In addition to great deals on yarn, last year they had pattern books for $1 and I bought waaayyyy too many.

    I've also had pretty good luck with snagging patterns from the samples Amazon has up for different books. Sometimes the patterns are edited out for obvious reasons but some are still in there.

  • @zwink1 I'll put Knitpicks on my radar! Also, do you use Pinterest? I love it for a bunch of different things, but mostly for patterns and recipes. :)

    @mamasaurus12415, Yes! I forgot to add that to my list. 

    @hedgepig, your quilts are absolutely stunning! I can't sew to save my life, unfortunately so I'm super jealous of your skills!

    @pebbledam LOVE the Link costume. Haha one of my close friends is TTGP (although not on here), and her 10 yr old stepson has asked her to name any future brother he may have "Link"  :D ETA: She was like "um no, you can name the dog." 

    ETA: I love the poncho too!!! So jealous of all of these mad crafting skills being shown off!

  • @pebbledam I'm super impressed by both of those projects! Well done!
    @KristoKekerooni Beautiful pie and couch bar!

  • @zwink1 great thread idea!

    @KristoKekerooni. I am super impressed at the table and the pie crust is so beautiful! Do you have a recipe you love for pie crusts?

    I love  crafting, but I have not been working on anything lately.  I do a lot with wooden blocks...painting them, adding photographs, or wooden letters (for holiday signs).
