Back to Basics...Back to Stripes!

Back to basics...back to school...back to stripes!!! It’s that time of the year again! September is approaching and while some of you have already seen your kiddos off to school, there are a few still prepping for that day.  Whether you’re reaching for the tissues or releasing that sigh of relief...or both...we all go through that emotional roller coaster getting ready for a brand new shift in our lives. 

My Favorite Yarns - Update #1

I’ve been meaning to write this from a long time ago, but when it comes to yarn ...how can you rush!?  You could be crocheting or knitting, learning about yarn, reading about yarn, writing about yarn, ...either way - there is no way to rush the process.  And even if you could...why would you want to? LOL. I know I wouldn’t, especially if I’m crocheting with some of my favorite fibers!

Come and Meet the Winterberry Sweater!!

Edgy!

Sassy!

Cool!

Classy!

The Winterberry Sweater gives you the best of all four worlds!  I had a blast designing this sweater, which may or may not be the last in her collection (See Winterberry Slouch Crochet Pattern and Winterberry Infinity Crochet Pattern). Working with the honeycomb stitch and designing from the top-down, I can honestly say it was a task figuring out the numbers and increases. But once it hit me….it HIT me!
