All my little friends are gathered here today because.. It’s Little Yarn Friends 1st Birthday!
Happy Birthday Little Yarn Friends!
I can’t believe it has been exactly a year since I first started “Little Yarn Friends”. Thank you so much for all the love and support that I’ve received over the past year. It has truly been an amazing journey and an awesome 1st year! I have met some of the most amazing, talented and supportive people through this blogging process.
Catherine Leck (Founder of Anywool) is the one who convinced me to start a blog and Facebook page for my crochet hobby and to share them on the Internet. I still remember I had mix feelings while writing my first blog post, not knowing where it would lead me to. But as I kept on writing, I realised how much I actually enjoyed it. It slowly became a part of my life as I journal down my craft journey and experiences on this blog.
Once in awhile, I will look back at the items I first started making and it’s amazing to see how far I have come. From someone that was clueless about crocheting to someone who enjoys creating, making and sharing this amazing craft. It’s been a wonderful learning journey, exploring and trying out new things.
I’ve never imagine that I’ll have 700 tumblr followers and 2467 friends on Facebook to date. I feel so blessed and thankful that I can share my love and creativity with you all through “Little Yarn Friends”. Thank you to each and every one of you for embarking this journey with me, who have left your kind comments, encouraging e-mail, shared your lovely photos and stories with me. YOU have made this journey a meaningful one. I’m also so thankful for all the opportunities that came.

May “Little Yarn Friends” continue to bring smiles to your faces and help bring some positivity and love into your lives, especially on those days when you need it most.

Somebody wants to play hide and seek with you. Can you make a guess who it is?
Peekaboo! It’s Lil’ Melody!
We were overwhelmed by the response we had after Lil’ Melody’s sneak preview a few days ago. Thank you for all the likes and lovely comments you’ve left on our Facebook page and…

Crafters never have enough time to make everything they want! :)
Ain’t that the truth!! ;)
Here’s a handy little crochet tutorial for beginners wanting to learn how to crochet over their ends. Via the LionBrand Yarn Blog.
A rest day well spent at home with my lovely family, some yarn and my crochet hook. To my surprise, I completed crocheting Lil’ Melody in a day! It’s probably one of the fastest creation I’ve done. *Feeling accomplished* :D
Stay tuned for the full blog post as well as Lil’ Melody’s crochet pattern that I’ll be sharing for FREE.
Crochet with Love, Rachel H
