    Pattern: Wordle by Ham & Eggs (free crochet pattern available on Ravelry) Yarn: Knit Picks Brava Worsted in Peapod (Green), Loops & Thread Impeccable in True Gray, Rowan Purelife in Alder Buckthorn (Mustard), Red Heart Super Saver in White Hook: D (3.25 mm) Directions tell you exactly how to make the format they show in the pattern or you can create your own. I chose to use one of the Riley’s actually Wordle days using a screenshot she sent me. I did the bottom row as one strip instead of five squares. When I joined the columns, I ran a slipped stitch down the existing stitches to match where I seamed up the previous rows I didn’t weave in any ends. I tucked them inside snd tied some of them together. I did one round of white to edge the front piece. Then seamed together the front and back together with sc with right sides facing out. I made the back piece in gray. I dont think that’s what was called for in the pattern. He has safety eyes and two little white arms. Riley is calling him Stove- after the winning word I based it on. She wants me to embroider STOVE on the back so we don’t forget his name Perry’s Hat

Awesome

Jen let’s us join her in her crafty studio in her cellar, or basement for those in other parts of the world. She describes her crafting projects, lifestyle changes, and things that inspire her in both areas. She is a competitive spirit and loves having fun and playing with her friends. She shares that with us as well. She also shares adventures with her large extended family and their grand fun they tend to have. It usually feels like a good catch up with a good friend.

Mom to Lisa ,

A great listen

This is such a great podcast. I look forward to every episode. Jenn is such a professional and she shares really interesting content.
