I love to make handmade items for the people who are special in my life. And who is more special than Mom? Whether your mom is your biological mom or someone who simply plays a mom role in your life, she certainly deserves something sweet that tells her you enjoy putting time into making her happy. That’s why today I’ve rounded up all of the past Mother’s Day knit and crochet posts from this blog. Plus I’ve included some fresh links to some of the best things to knit or crochet for Mom. They’re all rich in Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make the moms out there feel loved.
Meet Marly’s Mom
Before we get into the patterns, I just had to remind you that a few years back I did a whole series of YouTube knitting lessons where I taught my mom how to knit. So many people have said that they loved this series. Of course, the point is that you can learn to knit alongside my mom, step by step. For that reason, these videos are the perfect compliment to the BiCrafty Boot Camp: Knitting Lessons for Crocheters happening right now. (It’s not too late to join in; get the details here.) However, what people really loved the most was meeting my mom. And seeing the banter between us.
Here’s the first video in that series if you want a glimpse. And you can find the rest free on YouTube).
