Hey, Sugar Dumplins! I wanted to alert you to something super special happening on my friend Dana's (better known as Craftyminx) pretty, pretty, crafty blog. Besides being a sweet, smart, and charming librarian and all around awesome lady friend of mine, Dana is also one of the interwebs' craftiest people. She sews, she knits, she embroiders, and she can crochet a mean granny square. She even crocheted a different one every day for a whole year! She was the very first person I thought of when I set out to create my Patron Saint of Crochet. Anyway, Dana has very generously created a FREE e course all about crochet and is offering it on her blog right this very minute. Dana is a wonderful teacher. If you've ever wanted to learn to crochet, or if, like me, you need to brush up on crochet skills you learned long ago, now is your chance. I've been planning to pick up some yarn and dust off my crochet hooks this fall, so I'm really looking forward to following along. Let's get on the bus and go to Crochet School!
