The first day of Spring is just around the corner, and my crafty blog friends and I decided to host a link party that celebrates all things Spring, which includes crafts, gardening, activities, Easter, recipes, April Fool's Day, and more! We're also sharing some Spring projects of our own. I have Easter on my mind, and since it's still chilly here in the Pacific Northwest, I created a couple Crochet Carrot Scarves.

    Hoppy Easter Crochet Socks

    My goal for this year is to make things I've never made before, so here are my first pair of crochet socks! Since Easter is just around the corner, I decided to make my socks using pretty pastel colors from Caron Simply Soft. I love the softness of the yarn and all fun colors that are available with this brand. The colors I used are Strawberry, Robins Egg, Sunshine, Soft Orchid, Soft Green, and White. I've never made socks before, so I downloaded a pattern from Etsy (I didn't follow the pattern exactly, so my socks look different from the ones on Etsy). I've included instructions for making the bunny appliques below.

    Pepperoni Pizza Scarf & Crochet Hook

    *This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking these links.*
    As a fan of the crocheter Twinkie Chan and a lover of pepperoni pizza, I couldn't resist making Twinkie's Pepperoni Pizza Scarf. I followed the pattern in her book Twinkie Chan's Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats to Wear. This scarf was so fun and easy to make! I had so much fun, I was inspired to create a Pepperoni Pizza crochet hook and stitch marker with polymer clay.

    Bronze Goddess Crochet Hook

    Lately, I've become obsessed with browsing on Instagram. I've found so many inspirational crafters on Instagram. I've recently discovered that there are a few ladies who make beautiful crochet hooks. I ordered one for a friend as a Christmas gift, and I loved her hook. I should've ordered one for myself, but I decided to make my own instead. It just seemed like something fun to do.

    Heart Eyes Emoji Pillow

    Have you tried c2c (corner to corner) crochet yet? I recently tried a c2c pattern I found at Repeat Crafter Me, and I am now in love with c2c crochet. It's so much fun! I made a heart eyes emoji pillow. I was going to make all the emojis into pillows, but I think I want to make a throw instead. So I'll be making more c2c emojis soon!

    Valentine's Day Tree Skirt

    Last year, I decided that having a Christmas tree up all year and decorating it for different holidays was such a fun idea. So after Christmas, I decided to keep the small Christmas tree up on the buffet in our dining room, and I decorated it for Valentine's Day. And that meant, it needed a new tree skirt to match the Valentine's Day theme, so I crocheted one.

    Chocolate Cupcake Scarf

    Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I decided to make a fun crochet cupcake scarf. When I think of Valentine's Day, I think of chocolate and the colors pink and red. So I decided that my scarf would have chocolate cupcakes with pink and white frosting and pink and white pompom sprinkles. To make this scarf, I followed a pattern in the book Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies. I did make a modification to make the cupcake frosting appear to sit on tops of the chocolate instead of being flush with it.
