Month: October 2016

Hello Fall

It’s official, Fall is actually here.  Leaves changing colors, shorter days, colder days, wearing layers of clothing, and bundling up with some new scarves by Lauren at Where’s The Yarn?  I’ve currently working on new scarves for Sow’s Ear Studio and my Etsy shop.  All scarves are $45/each.  Scarves are made with yarn of all kinds including soft wool, cotton yarn, and worsted yarn.  Each scarf will have a different kind of stitch.  Stitches include single crochet stitch, half double crochet stitch, slip stitch, and other various types of stitches that I’m learning about along the way.  I’m also adding some fringe and fancy edges to my scarves when they’re completed. All scarves are machine washable and can be placed in the dryer on low heat. Buy an early holiday gift with a handmade scarf with my “BLACK FRIDAY SALE” on Thursday November 24th-December 11th, 2016.

My other goal is to not buy anymore yarn until the yarn I currently have is all used up.  No more buying yarn at Michaels and Herrschners.  My two favorite places to purchase yarn and burn a hole in my pocket.  I’ve got so much yarn to work with, I need to create some new designs for home and wearing.

Every time I see a new color of yarn, I always think of what I can make with it.  Well now I’ve decided to just create some new things with what I’ve got and then when I start to run low on my current yarn inventory, I’ll start to buy more.  Until then, you’ll see all the yarn that I currently have both at home and at Sow’s Ear Studio.  Both of these scarves will be added to my Etsy shop on November 1st, 2016.

Slip Stitch Used For Many Things

I’ve been crocheting since 2009 and learned only one stitch.  A simple single stitch. As time has gone by, I’ve decided to experiment with new stitches and techniques.  For example, I started this lovely nature scarf with a simple slip stitch.

A stitch that’s not lace, it’s closed.  With the slip stitch on this scarf, the stitches look big, loose, but the stitches are close enough to keep you warm during the long cold months.  I’m working on more blankets, scraves, fingerless gloves, and much more with this delightful stitch.
