June Pictures: The Silver Hook

 

I love blog posts filled with lovely pictures and I thought I would share with you some of my June crochet pictures. As you can see, June was a month of mermaids, mermen,…and even merdogs as well! This month as I am working on rebuilding my stock and adding to my Etsy shop, I will be focusing on color palettes inspired by late Summer/Autumn. Any color suggestions?

Prairie Conservation

 

Herd of SheepSheep are great for many things, especially for a crocheter or knitter.  They are one of my first amigurumi designs and continue to be on of the most popular toys and patterns.

 

I am totally a nature and biology fan. Today, I was happy to read about sheep being used as bush, weed, and invasive plant control by Meewasin Valley Authority. With the loss of large grazing herds of bison and other animals from the Canadian prairies, the sheep in small scale replicate their behaviors. For 31 years Meewasin has been working towards the conservation and restoration of a the valley along with sharing their knowledge with the public.
