5 of the Best: Yarn Cake & Some Colour

You may have noticed some little changes on the blog over the last week, including some early 'Spring' cleaning: reformatting of posts, fixing broken links and a few other things. That doesn't mean I've been neglecting new posts and there's plenty coming your way this week including:
- WIPs & Books, including a new crochet project (Wednesday)
- the official start of the Next Step Sock Knitalong (Thursday)
- maybe even a little finished something (Friday)

As usual, I've also been scouring the web for inspiring things which I think you might like too - here are "5 of the best". Enjoy!

Edited: The original 'pins' no longer work, but you can still click though using the links

1. When your circular needle is too long try this tip from Earth Heart Designs

2. Bloomin' Daisies free pattern by Natalie Gowen on Ravelry - I can think of many uses for these.

3. Fabric covered lantern (tutorial) from Swedish Blog Rebecca's DIY

4. Colour block handwarmers - simple yet beautiful free pattern from Purl Bee
