Fall Season

Hello there, my lovely crochet geeks!

Wibbly wobbly timey wimey friday

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint – it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”

Enjoy this Dr. Who Special Round Up on Friday Freebie’s #23.

So many people love this tv series and so do I :) This weeks round up includes 11 crochet patterns around Dr. Who – including 2 paid ones, just because they are SO awesome! But dont worry, the other 9 patterns are FREE!
