A week or so ago I posted about a new crochet stitch I had been doing that looks a lot like knit.  (See that post here.) It makes a beautiful fabric.  I’ve tried it in a couple of different size  yarns and I like it in all of them.  Several folks said they’d love to learn this one so we will have a class at The Studio on  October 10th.  Be sure to click here to register and join in.  Minimal crochet experience required.

Crocheting is a terrific hobby to develop.  I learned as a young child from my grandmother who was patient enough to teach a curious young girl.  And I’m glad she was because I have made hundreds of items over the years.  It is something I can do for a few minutes in between other things or I can sit for hours and crochet.  That is the beauty of it.  You can pick it up and put it down without any  preparation or clean-up.  And you can take most of it anywhere to do.  Stick it in a bag and crochet while in a waiting room or on a long car ride.  I LOVE IT!  If it’s time for you to learn then be sure to come to The Studio later this month and get in on the fun. We will learn to make an infinity scarf.  Click here  for more information and to register.

Crocheting on a Rainy Day

Yesterday was my day off.  And  what did I do?  I spent the day crocheting…working on stitches and patterns that we can use for classes at The Studio.  Yes, that is working and not a day off….but it’s fun work.  🙂   I think we have some new things that people might like to learn to do so they can get ready for fall and winter.  Keep an eye out for upcoming Crochet Classes.

Crochet Like Knit

This is a crochet stitch that I hadn’t tried before and I am so glad I finally found it.  It’s crochet but it looks very much like knit.  I love it.  I worked up this little blanket with Caron Cakes self-striping yarn….love it too.  So easy to use and makes a wonderful wide stripe.  Working on a few more new stitches that we may be able to use for a scarf class this fall at The Studio.  Stay tuned!

I finished my project using the Butterfly Stitch.  It worked up quickly and looks nice.  I like trying different stitches to see what effects we can get.  This one will work well for scarves, shawls, blankets, etc. You can find an easy to follow pattern here.

20170528_062724I had a chance to experiment with a couple of new stitches.  This is the Butterfly Stitch using Caron Cakes (that I love).  The self striping yarn is so much fun and so easy to work with because you don’t have to change yarn over and over again to get a beautiful look.  It does the work for you!  Don’t you LOVE it?!
