This makes your completed 40″ long necklace. You can wear it like this – it is very delicate and quite lovely!

Or you can pick it in your hands – one hand on each end of the strand and then twist it gently so it winds about itself (not too tight!).

Hand-dyed Yarn: \\\”Wild Hunt\\\”

Author: coffeedogyarn

The night is deep on the moor; you’re thankful for the crackling fire and steaming mug of tea beside you. Pull the blanket up a little higher on your lap—wait!

What’s that? Bells? Hoofbeats?

At the far-off blare of a hunting horn, you’re certain you can hear the deep blue of the growing night torn by black. The shadowed depths of forest green shudder as the wind picks up. As the floor beneath you ceases its trembling, you smile grimly, sip your tea, and stoke the hearth.

The Wild Hunt rides tonight, me dearies!

Not to worry, though! We’ve got a brand new, hand-painted Aran weight yarn all set to become a part of your next project. 100% Andean wool, its 92 yards of warmth will take the chill from even the deepest, darkest of nights.

Granny Square Blanket

Author: stitchem

I made my first blanket! I found this free pattern on Lion Brand’s website. You do need to make an account, but it’s free!

The blanket worked up very quickly, which I was happy about. I was afraid it was going to take me a long time!

The yarn I used was Impeccable Loops and Threads in True Grey, Lavender, Soft Rose, and White.

image

This was my first time ever doing a granny square. I thought they would be a lot harder to make! I can’t wait to make more granny square blankets. Does anyone know why it is called a granny square?

image

I’m sad I didn’t get any better pictures. I made this blanket as a present, and finished it an hour before I had to give it away! The sun was also setting quickly, making the picture quality not as nice. Oh well, I know my friends are getting a good use out of this warm blanket!

Happy crocheting!

I’ve worn crochet braids the most throughout my transition, so my techniques are evolving.  I decided to do an update to both my cornrow patternand how to make pre-braided strands last a while.  As you’ll remember, I typically only wear pre-braided crochet braids for only 3 – 4 weeks because the new growth…

Bower Bird – finished!

Author: bluehwys

Attic 24 released the pattern for her cute little bower bird, and I waited about a week before I gave in and made one for myself, lol.

You can follow that pattern on her blog (always fun – she has such a great writing style), or you can download a PDF here.

I don’t usually do any kind of decorative stitching on my crochet, so I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.  It’s pretty simple, but for not doing it a lot, I’m rather proud of it.

image

image

I love the soft, vintage-y colors in this yarn.  And in a happy coincidence, they’re totally the same colors that are in my bedspread, just lighter.

image

BTW, the yarn is Lily Sugar and Cream in Buttercream (varigated) and Jute (solid).

A Yarn Update

At work today I wound the yarn so that I could get working with it, and decided to post the results:

Lorna’s Laces Solemate in Devon

Pretty nice. It’s a bit shadowy in these pictures, but you can tell that the blues are going to work beautifully together. But then…

Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock Yarn in Florabunda

That’s it. I love it. I am going to make a full outfit out of this yarn. I will have socks and a hat and a sweater and a skirt and gloves and a scarf and I will wear it without irony and look fabulous because this yarn is possibly the most beautiful colorway I have seen anywhere. Suffice to say that I will be using Three Irish Girls yarn for the stuff I sell on Etsy (if I ever get the shop going).
