Welcome to the 5th Super Crafty Sunday Link Up!
Before we get into this month’s party, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who linked up last month. The number of entries has grown, and variety of them. While this (and the CrochetN’Crafts) blog/s are mostly crochet, we love allllll kinds of crafts, and we love when you share them with us! Your link ups for this party can be anything that is family friendly, like craft DIYs, recipes, fashion posts, decorating posts, giveaways, traveling posts, etc, and you can do so from a variety of sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog, just remember to link to a specific page, and not your home page.
Since last month’s party, here’s what I have been up to:
Blessed C2C Blanket (Free Crochet Pattern) – How to Close the Gaps in C2C Letters (Photo Tutorial) – Basic Chunky C2C Blanket (Free Crochet Pattern) – Summer Crochet Lace Wrap (Crochet Pattern Review) – Lakeshore Tank Top (Crochet Pattern Review) – Pi & Pippi the Octopi (Free Crochet Pattern)
This Month’s Most Clicked Projects:
Left: Sunshiny Day Pullover from Atelier Marie-Lucienne – Crochet Inspiration. If you have followed EyeLoveKnots for awhile, you know that I have a deep love for granny squares and the granny stitch pattern. They are so versatile, and easy to create a variety of things, like this Sunshiny Day Pullover! It’s paired with a lacey v-stitch, which would make this an awesome warm weather top in my book. Garments are something I dabble in, but still have lots of learning and growing to do with so I will be patiently waiting for this crochet pattern to pop up on the Atelier Marie-Lucienne blog so I can make my own!
Right: Crochet Utility Mini Basket from Raji’s Craft Hobby – Free Crochet Pattern. Little crochet baskets are cute, and so useful! I gave my Trio of Grande Winter Baskets (my own free crochet pattern) to my mom shortly after I finished them, and she uses them to house her bath towels, washcloths and make up. But you could use cute little baskets for anything! To house your crochet hooks as Raji has done, or small knotions like buttons, or oh, how about some candies to snack on while you work?!
A Little From Helena:
Left: Summer Crochet Lace Wrap – Right: Summer Crochet Lace Scarf
I tried my hand at the Summer Crochet Lace Wrap, and I really loved how easy and beautiful it was to work up. Summer is nearly upon us, so better get going on your own. Perfect for running around town in, paired with your favorite dress for date night or have it accompany you to the beach.
This Month’s Giveaway is sponsored by me, Alexandra of EyeLoveKnots. I have a HUGE tote full of items to go up in my EyeLoveKnots Etsy and eBay shops, so I figured I would pull out these pair of earrings to giveaway. One winner will receive the pair of Peacock Earrings shown. The peacocks are metal (not labeled, so either nickel or silver plated) charms with splashes of orange and turquoise on the feathers, and a darker bluish green in the center. They are hung from hypoallergenic, surgical steel earring wires perfect for sensitive ears! They dangle down 2″, and measure 1 1/8″ are the widest point.
Must be 18 years or older to enter. Open to all countries. Void where prohibited. Winner has 48 hours to respond to email notification, or another winner will be chosen. Alexandra of EyeLoveKnots is responsible for prize fulfillment.

I love birds especially the feathers around the head and neck. I also love each unique call they make; beautiful!
I love birds too! One of my favorite things is to sit outside, and watch all the birds (and squirrels) come to and from my feeder, and listen to them all “sing”.
Deborah W. says
I would love to see yarn or other craft supplies. I love the earrings though; so pretty!
Thanks, this helps! Since this is a link up for a variety of posts, I want to make sure I giveaway things that everyone can enjoy.
Thank you so much for featuring my utility Basket ?. Elated to b featured!
And yes….. I love your projects….. specially the octopi….. Infact am planning to make one of them from your tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing.

I love to hear birds singing, my favorite is the beautiful red Cardinal.
The Cardinals are quite beautiful! That little bit of red flying about. I have a male and female couple that come eat together. One eats while the other stands guard.
I love birds of all sorts. Where I vacation, in Florida, there was up until a year or so ago, a huge flock of peacocks roaming around. They eventually had to trap and relocate all of them because they were becoming too numerous and causing all sorts of havoc in the neighborhood where they resided. I miss seeing them.
I have heard about local peacock communities, but I haven’t seen any. The only place I saw a ton was at the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine – they are everywhere! And on top of the little buildings. Scary, and neat at the same time.
I like giveaways with craft supplies and jewelry!
So good to know! Thank you for sharing 🙂
