This join can be used for any type square! Enjoy!

Tapestry Crochet Made Easy

My first one and want to do soon.

HodgePodge Crochet

Crochet graphghans are AMAZING to look at but they can be very intimidating to jump into–especially if you really aren’t confident with color changing OR if you haven’t ever attempted cross-stitching.

But it really isn’t very hard once you get the hang of it and the only supplies you will need are ones you probably already have on hand; some yarn, a hook, and a few basic skills!

The discussion about potential curriculum changes at Notre Dame has brought the conversation about Catholic identity in Catholic universities into the limelight once again. In light of this, we at Daily Theology have decided to run an impromptu Shark Week titled “”What is, or should be, Catholic Higher Education?” Starting Monday several of our contributors will offer their insights on this…
