Yarn-covered Couch: Back to bloggingYarn-covered Couch

Sounds like good choices were made. Take out the knitting- it is the best therapy! I always knit to relax and forget problems, and then my results are there to see- a great knitted sweater or blanket.

Skacel

Skacel

The sizzle yarn looks interesting. I might give it a try and use it with another yarn to knit up a fast scarf. You can never have too many knitted scarfs!

Crochet Design

Crochet Design

I have not done a filet crochet design. It has always intrigued me. I might get the pattern. It is cheap enough to give it a try.

Needles and Wool

Needles and Wool: "It really is a beautiful store! Did I come home empty handed? Don't be silly! But I was restrained and only came home with 3 skeins of Classic Elite Lush in natural (yum) and a Noro pattern book. "

I am always looking for new yarn stores. Ct is fine, as my children live there. I like how they seem to set up the yarn, from the pictures of the store. I don't need more yarn, but....

Sirdar

Sirdar

The SIrdar cotton yarn looks nice. I find the SIddar yarns knit up beautifully. Sirdar is coming out with so many new yarns. I usually like their synthetic yarns, as they work great on knitted children's sweaters and blankets. These Sirdar yarns wash and wear well.

Crochet Child Poncho Pattern

Crochet Child Poncho Pattern

Great looking pattern for child's granny square poncho. It looks interesting to crochet. I find that these patterns are usually easy to follow. The pattern for the crocheted bear should be interesting, too.
