A New Yarn-A New Scarf

I got some different yarn at the Fiber Fair this past weekend and worked up this asymmetrical scarf.  I love the drape of it.  It’s called Zig Zag by Interlacements.  I’ll be ordering some more as I really like it.  Check them out here.

Another Poncho

Here is a poncho that I made several years ago and have worn it many, many times.  It’s my favorite.  It is a simple design but very functional.  We will have a poncho class soon.  Start thinking about the yarn you want for your design.

Bringing Back the Poncho

Ponchos are making a comeback.  And I for one LOVE THEM!  They are super comfy and warm and if you find the right yarn they are super cute!  I just finished this one using some really interesting yarn by Bernat called Dimensions.   The color is Purple Swirl.  Love it!  We will have a Design your own Poncho class soon.  Stay tuned.  In the meantime we have the “Crochet Like Knit” class coming up Tuesday.  Check it out here.

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.
