For Mother’s Day…

How many of us learned the hand-making skills we love from our mother or grandmother? Mother’s Day is next Sunday and it’s a great time to say thank you, or to make something in honor of those who’ve taught us about the things we love. Whether for mom, or someone special who deserves a little love and yarn this spring – here are some great gift recommendations!
