As a home owner with all wood floors and 3 kids, it’s a quest I’m familiar with! So with slipper gift giving season upon us, today’s roundup features a collection of ideas I’ve put together to make slippers non slip. Some stuff you might already have, or be able to find at the hardware or craft store – or just click the link to buy online!

Hookin On Hump Day #58: Link Party for the Fiber Arts

We’re closing in on the holidays, with just 7 more weeks to craft for Christmas, and a whole lot less for both Thanksgiving and Hanukkah! So I’m sure your hooks and needles are flying! And that means there’s lots of great crafty inspiration and pattern writing happening too – and Sara from My Merry Messy Life and I love it when you share it with us here on HOHD! Remember, with the two of us as co-hosts, the featured projects get twice the publicity, with links on both our sites and all our social media outlets! And if you tweet about it using the hashtag #HOHD, we’ll use these to get even MORE attention on your posts and entries. So let’s get to it!

Hookin On Hump Day #58 - Holiday patterns and Inspiration from the best fiber arts bloggers!


#1 – Most-Clicked Link – What’s New, Pussy Cat? by Jam Made – such a creative twist on a cat! I love the granny square bellies.

#2 – Brooklyn Fingerless Mitts or Wrist Warmers, Free Crochet Pattern by Crochet Dreamz – LOVE this project! Also comes with a pattern for boot cuffs. Perfect for holiday gifts and it’s a FREE pattern!

#3 – The Larksfoot Blanket is Finished! by My World of Crochet – gorgeous use of color and comes with a link to a free crochet chart to make it!

#4Autumn Cowl by There Where is Soleil – another project with bright colors using the mosaic stitch.

Great job everyone! Now go grab your I’ve Been Featured button and relish in the spotlight. I’ll be pinning you on my Pinterest Board and featuring you on Facebook and Google+, as will My Merry Messy Life!

Now onto this week’s party! Here are a few simple rules:

  • Please link your post back to one of the hostesses Moogly or My Merry Messy Life, or grab the Hookin on Hump Day party button here. Without a button on your site or link back on your post, we will not be able to feature it the following week. We have had to pass over many people before because there was no button or link!
  • I’d also really appreciate if you’d follow me on one of my social media links (see the icons at the top left of the page), and I will happily follow back (just leave me a comment that you’re following me from here, and include a link to your own page)!
  • Please visit at least one other link and leave a comment on their post so we can really support each other!
  • Please remember to link to your actual project URL and not your homepage URL, and use the name of your project or post, not your own name.
  • Please, no Etsy stores, Facebook pages, giveaways, non-fiber arts posts or other link parties. Just blog posts to your actual projects.
I can’t wait to see what you’re working on now! You don’t have to be a designer or a big name blog to join this link party – all you need is to have a post about a fiber arts project you did that you’d like to show off! You don’t have to enter at both blogs either – an entry on one shows up on both, and the featured links are promoted by both My Merry Messy Life and Moogly! Twice the exposure! Remember, this party is in RANDOM order, so there’s no such thing as being late.
