Cute Mask Mates

I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Mask helpers don’t have to be simple cloth or plastic doodads on the back of the head. Why not be a little playful or whimsical while staying safe? Fashion does not have to collide with health, and the two can fo hand in hand. Moreover, it still isn’t warm, so some of these projects might be au courant in more ways than one.
