A Very Parental Edition of Yarnival!

Howdy, folks! I decided to have a go at editing Yarnival again. It’s been a while! But it was fun. Thanks so much to all those folks who submitted their blog posts. This one has a parental theme, in honour of Mother’s Day. The feature article is Dr. G’s Memory Vest at Through the Loops. Dr. G’s memory is being ruthlessly robbed of him by Alzheimer’s. By leaving a donation, you are supporting The Fisher Center (an Alzheimer’s research center) and being given an absolutely beautiful sweater pattern. Give what you can.

The second feature is from the chemgrrl chronicles. Not necessarily about parenting, but I love science like a motherblather. Which is close. Check out the chemistry behind wool and blocking.

A Friend to Knit With has a post about a handknitted dress knitted by dear old Mom.

Grab a pattern for a Winged Mom Heart Tattoo at anny purls.

Here’s a touching story about a blanket and parental memories at Yarn~Knit~Read~Lit.

Strands Of Me has a pattern from a mom to a daughter.

Armour Mittens

Kathryn embellished a pair of Fiber Trend clogs to look like Lady Bugs!

Princess Pea is experimenting with minfulness, and is knitting positive emotions into every stitch of her comfort blanket knitted mindfully.

Fricknits wants you to know that Cowl is the new scarf.

med pinner has a beautiful pair of Latvian Mittens on display.

If you’d like to knit like a Scandinavian, try some Two-End Knitting at Pipe Dreams and Purling Plans.

Or you can try some Pansies at mind of winter!
