I chose to name this weeks square after a little area that I tend to pass through when traveling. There is just something about Bois D’Arc that sounds so mysterious, magical, and intriguing. In my fantasy this little quaint area would have scrumptious yarns, one of a kind handmade crochet hooks and knitting needles, tons of notions and accessories made by the locals that you cannot get anywhere else, weekly crochet and knit gatherings, and much more.
