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.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of introducing The Pasadena Crochet Meet Up to the beautiful Red Heart Soft yarn. The texture, the way it drapes, and the variety of colors are just amazing. Some of the group members opted to use Red Heart Super Saver for this project and it worked out just as well.
Come on into the Boutique–the Red Heart Boutique that is–where you’ll find lots of beautiful yarns and designs, including new “Swanky”.
I wish that I could tell you that I am up on all the current styles and I know what everyone is wearing, but I can’t. I have a secret weapon, a college age daughter who lets me know what’s hot and trendy. She also feels free to let me know what I should and should not wear.
I can tell you that she will only accessorize with cowls, no scarf for her. Over the summer she brought me four scarves that someone had given her and asked me to sew the ends together and make them cowls. I understand it because they are stylish, warm, sensible and they won’t fall off.
In honor of the colder temperatures I wanted to bring you a variety of cowls. At RedHeart.com we have so many different styles to choose from. We have short, long, wide, twisted, dressed up or dressed down and even finger crocheted cowls. Please enjoy my dozen picks, but check out our website for other free knit and crochet patterns and so much more.
