Now is the perfect time to get weaving, and beginning today, April 1st, I will kick off a month of posts. Each day in April I will post on my eWoodstory Instagram account about a different weaving technique. I plan to make a sampler including all of the 30 techniques. It will be great to refer to when I am in a weaving rut! Follow along and make a sampler too, if you wish. Get out your yarns and looms, or if you don't have one, make one out of cardboard!

My love for designing jewelry patterns is alive with my latest pattern release, the Julia Necklace!
A modern mix of metallic and non-metallic yarns and crocheted beads add lots of interest to this elegant necklace. The pattern could also be used to crochet trim to embellish the neckline of a top. You can alter the length of the necklace easily by changing the number of repeats you crochet. It could also be more casual if you changed the metallic yarns to regular yarns.
To celebrate the release of this pattern, I am offering a 50% discount on it to the first 5 customers. To purchase the pattern, go to this link, and to get the discount enter: FIRST5

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!

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!
