Once high school and college are over you wonder if you will ever make lasting friends like you had when you were young. I grew up in Louisiana and moved to North Carolina as an adult so I was not sure it would happen. It did! I have five fabulous ladies that are my “grown up” friends. We all lived in the same neighborhood, five of us in the same cul-de-sac. Our kids grew up together and we remained friends even after most of us moved away. I think we are on 14 years now.
Since crafters are doing knotted macramé things (like friendship bracelets), I thought I would try a simple knotted Sashay scarf…it actually turned out much easier than a macramé bracelet and you can complete it in an evening. It’s made just like knotting double or triple knotted fringe and is a stylish alternative to the ruffled scarf.

What was your reaction when you saw the recent news about the beautiful thread crochet wedding dress made by Chi Kmeta? What about when you see examples of vintage crochet blankets made entirely with thread? A common reaction among crocheters goes something like, “that’s beautiful and amazing … and I could never do it”.
If I didn’t work for the company that sells it, I probably would never know about this cute little Susan Bates Silvalume® Handi Tool. I keep one in my knitting tools and crochet hook kit along with stitch markers, stitch holders, gauge, a favorite pair of snippers and non-greasy hand cream. And I keep a second in my sewing kit.
Welcome back to the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge, Season 6! This week I’m knitting myself the Create Some Charm Hat. I love thick yarns, so I’m happy to work with our new yarn Grande. Grande is a super bulky yarn (6 weight) and it comes in 9 heathered colors.
