Hello Fellow Crafters,
My name is Diane and I love Red Heart Yarn. I have crocheted and knitted for many years, so when I started working in the payroll department here I was happy to be able to be around yarn more than at other companies in my past. My first encounter with thread was when I was a small child my grandmother taught me how to make hairpin lace and attach to a hankie. Ooops! I’m dating myself. I also have fond memories of my Mom and me getting the sale papers for yarn and figuring out what patterns we were going to make and trying to be one of the first customers at the store to be sure that we got the yarn we needed. Of course you had to paw through a lot of yarn to get all you wanted in the same dye lot. It was very important that you bought extra so you wouldn’t run out. And my father’s unique take on what he saw my Mom doing while crocheting her doilies, he called it “Knotting Thread”. I still refer to that phrase.

I thought some of you may feel the same way I do about prints that are meant for home décor—the ones I can afford really don’t have much appeal for me. Original art is not a financial option. And there are only so many family photos that I want to see on my walls every day. Continue reading “Click-and-Print Graphics for Yarn Lovers”
Ready for Spring? I sure am! I like lace-stitch style shirts and wearing tank tops underneath so when I saw the fun Tootsie Top pattern in Crochet Today’s May/June 2013 issue I just had to make it! In the past, I had a tendency to make projects that had a quick turn-around so making a top like this, in my mind, was a little out of my league. Especially when I saw that the pattern was an intermediate skill level. I got a little nervous, but I decided what the heck! I stuck with it and didn’t quit!
