Easy Crochet

The "Coming Home" poncho kit I assume is the Martha Stewert poncho. The price seems reasonable. It is a hot item, as everything related to Martha seems to be in the news.

I also dislike knitting stores where they have an attitude problem. It is so annoying, as often I need help finding the right yarn and/or patterns. My feeling is that they should be there to help. I guess they feel they can be independent.

Lana Grossa

I have never used Lana Grossa yarns, but the grey ribbon looks interesting. I have a grey mohair that I think will coordinate well. I can picture it as a scarf. I might just use the ribbon alone, if their is enough yardage. I have found that I need about 140 yards to create a decent sized knitted scarf. Of course the yarn thickness and crochet hook or knitting needle size makes a difference.

I love the Precious Baby Bonnets pattern. It looks so feminine an cute. I will try it with a soft verigated yarn that I bought. Hopefully it will crochet up like the picture.

Nice looking socks. The yarn looks familar. If it is what I think it is it is soft to the touch. I like the pattern it creates as you knit it up.

Martha Stewert makes the new again! I also was not too impressed with the poncho. If nothing else the number of hits on the Lions Brand webpage surely increased. It is amazing how it interested the public. I read that the yarn was gotten in prison. Other yarn wagons are getting on the bandwagon with their own versions of the "Martha Poncho."

Katia

Katia yarns are usually nice to knit and crochet with. The tutti frutti would make a great sweater, and 7 skeins should knit up or crochet nicely for a child's sweater.

What flappy ear flaps! I hate when a knitting pattern book does not take the time do really test the knitting pattern. Too often they do not come out right, even if I follow the knitting directions exactly.

Some really cute crochet purse patterns. It seems to be the in thing for spring. That and knitted felted bags. I will try the cute kid's crochet purse pattern.
