Best Shawl In A Ball Crochet Patterns

I just purchased my first ball of Lion Brand’s Shawl In A Ball. I went to my local JoAnn expecting to find it there, but the sales staff seemed unfamiliar with this yarn. \What?  So I called A.C. Moore. They had some in the back that had just come in. They had not set up… Continue reading Best Shawl In A Ball Crochet Patterns

I enjoy making yarn with my spinning wheels and spindles, so I thought it would be fun to try dying some of my handspun.  I do not have professional dyes at the moment, and the koolaid I bought to dye with has long been mixed and consumed… Continue reading Craft Adventure – Dying Yarn with Food Coloring
