Suan Knits (And Crochets, Too!)

Suan Knits (And Crochets, Too!): "One is this pair of socks from the book 'Cool Socks, Warm Feet' by Lucy Neatby. This is called the Mermaid socks. Very fun to knit. I used Millenweit sock yarn by Lana Grossa, wool/cotton/nylon blend. "

The socks look great. I really have to try knitting socks, but the thought is frightening. It is amazing that I knit everything, blankets, sweaters, etc., but never socks.

Embroidery kits are hard to come by. I am thrilled to find some kits here. Emboidery seems to be coming back into vogue. As a youngster, years ago, I embroidered table cloths as well as pillow cases and pictures. I am glad embroidery is coming back.

I am so thrilled to find a Pooh crochet afghan pattern. My granddaughter loves Pooh, as do most children. The afghan should crochet up beautifully!

Knitting and crochet magazines are always fun to find. I am looking forward to the special issue of Interweave. I have not seen it before. Also, Kitscape's special issue shoud be interesting, as it has fun, fashionable patterns.

The glittery yarn looks really beautiful. I have made numerous scarfs and ponchos using a similar yarn. The colors make me think it might be hand dyed yarn. Even if it is not hand dyed the colors of the yarn look gorgeous!

Beaded crocheting is really in. I think the crocheted, beaded purse pattern should be interesting. It is certainly cheap enough and I guess I will give it a try.
