Week 75: KNIT

Knitting seems to be a craft that's back in the spotlight these days!  There are so many fun things being made by talented fingers and we'd love to see what this word inspires your creative minds to create!  Are any of you proficient at knitting?  Maybe you have some tips for those of us that would love to learn!  It's one of those things that just seems to go hand in hand with cold days and long nights, especially if there is a warm fire on hand!

The design team and this week's guest designer created some smile worthy inspiration this week!  Take a look!
