Celebrating Crochet in the Summer!



I decided to kick off the month of July featuring and discounting a different pattern every day from my Ravelry shop.

The first pattern I have selected is the Petals Collar. I originally designed this pattern for Inside Crochet magazine and it is now available in US crochet terms. This pattern has some whimsical elements and encourages you to celebrate color. The embroidered details finish it off in a unique way.  This collar turns a simple neckline into something exciting. It can be made for an adult or a child. You can also use finer yarn and a smaller hook to make a smaller scale collar.

Get this pattern today only for $1.49 in my Ravelry Shop.

Our Spinerations Handspun Yarn Now on Etsy!


As you may already know, my daughter Sara and I love spinning yarn, and we have turned our love of fiber ino a business! We have been on Instagram for a while, talking about our spinning adventures and have been selling yarn at the Sadu House museum gift shop in Kuwait. Our next adventure is branching out to sell our Spinerations handspun yarn on Etsy in our eWoodstory shop. We have our own unique way of blending fibers and spinning thick and thin yarn that is wonderful for giving texture and personality to weaving. We also like to incorporate recycled yarn and fabric scraps into our yarns whenever we can. We are excited to get our yarns into the world and hope it will be used in some fun projects!

New Larger Etimo Crochet Hooks!


I have been a real fan of Etimo crochet hooks since they first came out, but I have always wished that they came in larger sizes. I do have a rare 10.5mm that I found on eBay, and I was hoping that one day they would make even larger hooks! I just found out that they are now making 10mm, 12mm, and 15mm hooks in the Etimo Grand line. I decided to order the 12mm to try. It is plastic, so I am not sure I will like it as well as the metal hooks, but I am hoping that it will be just as comfortable to hold. As soon as I get the chance to try it out, I will report back to you with my review. Fingers crossed, I will like them and get to order the 10 and 15mm sizes! If any of you have tried these hooks already, I would love to hear what you think of them!
