CypressTextiles The Flat Braid Join is a magical thing of crochet wonderment. I learned how to do it from my crochet idol: Priscilla Hewitt, pattern designer of such famous works as the Sunburst Granny Square (Ravelry) and the Circle of Friends Square (Ravelry), which I slightly adapted to create the Textured Circles blanket.

Third Loop’s the Charm Hello happy hookers! I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Mr. Third Loop. Edit Photos Just Like In Photoshop: You CAN Do That On A Chromebook!

14 Badass Banned Books Trading Cards Last year, we celebrated Banned Books Week with a feature about the super cool and creative community art contest from our friends at the Lawrence Public Library in Lawrence, Kansas (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!). The library invited local artists to create small-scale works inspired by a banned book, and a jury chose seven designs–one for each day of Banned Books Week–to appear on trading cards. The project garnered national attention, and when its creator, Susan Brown, moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina (home of the KU’s long-time rivals) to become the director of Chapel Hill Public Library, she decided to do it again this year and bring the two cities together. Artists of all ages from Lawrence and Chapel Hill submitted works inspired by banned books, and a jury in each city again selected 7 designs. The LPL and CHPL revealed one design each day throughout the last week, and we are thrilled to be able to show them to you here all at once.
