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. .."
This was one of my favorites! 



LB pattern L40271


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 fun spin on the Pancho! I love the 2 tones and textures together!

This reminds me of the quilts my grandma used to make! I absolutely love log cabins!



The color blocking on this one is fun! I would totally wear this and I am not a Pancho person! I like how it has the sleeves so it stays in place and you can use your hands!

Here are some photos from the Booth :)

The #scarfie hashtag is huge! Take a photo with a scarf made with Lion Brand Yarn and post it online with the hashtag. 


Yes that is a giant knitted  iphone! All the people with the #scarfie hashtag  are on it!

Look who I found to the a #scarfie with! My dear friend Yolanda of the All Crafts Channel

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
