Just A Few of My Favorite Things
I love the smell of the earth after a rainstorm, raindrops on roses, and those adorable little whiskered faces of kittens. My friends would definitely list hiking and walking on my list of favorite things. But if you were to ask them what my all-time favorite thing is, they would probably say yarn.
When you walk into my house you will see yarn everywhere. There are in-progress crochet projects-yes definitely multiple projects-beside chairs and in baskets; my craft room has stacked of containers filled with yarns in all colors and weights.
More than my love of yarn, though, is my excitement about the possibilities for that yarn. Here are a few of the options I am currently exploring or want to play with this year.
|I fell in love with Tunisian crochet several years ago. I still want to explore Tunisian crochet lace, but right now I am fascinated by two color Tunisian crochet in the round. Lily Chin is an expert in this technique, and I have found incredible tips and inspiration in her digital workshop, Two Color Tunisian Crochet in the Round.|
|Crochet accessories are a growing obsession for me. They make incredible gifts, and they are a great way add a pop of color or make an outfit your own. It Girl Crochet is my new go-to book for crochet patterns. I have already made two pairs of the Psychedelia Mitts shown on the cover, and I want to crochet the Mes Petites Mitts and the Shawl Vigne next.|
And while my love of yarn is illustrated by skeins scattered pretty much throughout my house-I know I'm not the only one to do this-, this year I want to add more crocheted home décor pieces to my home. For this, I am turning to the Crochet Home magazine from Interweave Crochet. Inside there are incredible crocheted pillows. I am in love with all of them!
These three products, coincidentally, are three of the ten most popular digital products in the Crochet Me Shop. Today only, these top products are all 50% off, so hurry over and get your copies.
