The Crochet Project projects by Sparkles

Hi all, Laura here again with more of my adventures in crochet! You may have seen our recent posts about the upcoming Skimming Stones MCAL from The Crochet Project. I am very excited to take part in this as it is the perfect opportunity to combine crochet and our yarns!
