My fridge is where I like to collect all my photo booth pictures with friends, and I need a ton of magnets! These grocery-themed magnets are a fun way to keep your keepsakes and to-do lists in order. Plus, you’ll get a lot of mileage out of these little guys because you can also turn them into hair clips or brooches! I use a lot of Cascade 220 for these magnets because it comes in a super wide range of colors and is a nice, light worsted weight, but if you want your grocery foods to turn out bigger or smaller, you can just adjust your yarn weight and your hook size.
