We're all blog readers here, right? So we all know that there are blogs and blogs, by which I mean that the category of blog has so many different outcomes, that the name 'blog' gives away next to nothing about what you'll find when you click that link, and the world of crochet blogs in itself is just the same. You know, you get blogs which are all about one person's journey in wool manipulation, to blogs run by people that almost exclusively feature the work of others, or blogs by professional crochet designers to the new beginners.
Affordable Wonders is a blog which, somehow, seems to straddle the whole gamut. It's written by a crocheter who knows what it means to design a pattern, and who does so well, (check out the Mickey Mouse hat, look at those neat little stitches!) but who is willing to share her patterns for free. It's clear that this blog is written by someone who knows a bit about the power of giving, and I assume that's why she's so generously sharing her patterns and tips, from crocheted hair bows to home-made yarn swifts. Affordable Wonders hasn't been around long, just since February this year, but my money's on this blog becoming an invaluable resource over the next few years, for all of us crocheters and crafters out there. Definitely one to follow and keep your eyes on.
