Noah's Ice Cream #scarfie

I was lucky enough to spend some time with the amazing people from Lion Brand while I was at the CHA and as soon as my 5 year old spotted this yarn they gave me he decided it was his!  Ice Cream yarn in the colorway Cotton Candy ! So I am making a full size scarf we can share :)
I offered to pick him up a ball without pink or purple but he loved the name

This Free pattern is advanced beginner and uses sc, hdc, dc, tr
 I hook
1 ball of Lion Brand Ice Cream yarn

Chain 16  *turn at the end of every row*

Row A: ch1, sc in the next 4 stitches, hdc in the next 4 stitches, dc in the next 4 stitches, tr in the next 4 stitches.

Row B: ch1 sc in each stitch until the end of row.

Row C: ch3, tr in first stitch, tr I'm next 3 stitches, dc in the next 4 stitches, hdc in the next 4 stitches, sc in the last 4 stitches.

Row D: ch1 sc in each stitch.

Repeat rows A to D until your scarf is the length you desire.

I love how the color changes in the yarn highlight the stitch pattern! Don't forge…

Lion Brand fashion show and the #scarfie

I had the pleasure of meeting Vanna at the Lion Brand fashion show Sunday!!
Here is the link to last year's show
I was lucky enough to be sitting in the 2nd row and right by Vanna, in the photo above is the president of Lion Brand David Blumenthal.
I know my photos are not ideal but they were the best I could get!  Here is a closer look at Vanna's shawl they are tiny granny squares using Vanna's glamor and bon bons. Anyone could make this and look amazing! The fashion show focused on squares and blocks and how easy shapes can make amazing farmers even for the beginner!  While I was watching the show I thought of Megan Trainer's song but instead of its all about that bass.... "it's all about that block, that block.. No shaping. .."

Ombre! Who doesn't crazy for it? This was another one of those block like designs which is fun and makes it easy for ANY beginner to make something they can wear!

I know that one is knit but wow is that a f…


I was at the Craft and Hobby Association show in Anaheim Ca! I will have many posts about the show but let's start with the Yarnspirations booth!

Looking out through the wardrobe  you get a glimpse of Yarnia!

The details just blew me away! Yarnspirations spent about 10 months putting this booth together! I loved seeing the different  yarn lines they have shine in thier unique applications. For example they used thier metallic yarn to make the chain maille and word has it that it's done in movies that way too!

I wish a had a few more photos of the tent to show you! Each panel was a different stitch and I can't even imagine how many hours it took to create!
