Corner-to-Corner Throw…3 Colorful Ways

You’ll find separate patterns for each of the 3 throws linked to their photos below. Which one would you like to have on your sofa to cozy up with?

January Doily of the Month

Welcome to the January Doily of the Month! Each month in 2016 we will share a new doily pattern for you to crochet in Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread.

Fun with Boutique Fur

I first had the opportunity to touch, and play with this scrumptious yarn at the Knit and Crochet Show in San Diego CA earlier this year. I purchased a few skeins at the show, but it wasn’t until Red Heart Boutique Fur became available at my local big box retailer that I was able to purchase most of the colors, and allow my creativity to run wild! Among my friends, I’m the one who adores working with novelty yarn. I like the way the end result looks and feels. I don’t mind that instead of seeing the stitches clearly, you have to feel you way through your project. When I work with this yarn I poke me finger into each stitch before placing my crochet hook in the stitch.

My friend asked me to make birthday gifts for her 2 year old twin granddaughters that live in Green Bay and happen to be Packer fans. She wanted to give them each a hat, mittens and leg warmers…one set pink, the other purple with Green Bay Packers colors yellow and green accents.
