Yarnia

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!



This has to be my favorite of all them if I had to pick...I love how it goes from a fine knit to a jumbo one!


This is a lovely example of the different yarns all working together to make a jaw stopping creation.





Of all the things to be excited about these  sure made me say awww out loud!

This is something any crocheter could do! Just graph what you want and sc the the colors! 

I personally always have crochet snowflakes on my trees and I loved that Yarnia has them too!


I stand in awe of the person who knit this! The details are beautiful!

The brick wall was clever! I think it would make a fun afghan too! I know my boyfriend was saying he would mind one... uh oh maybe I shouldnt be sharing these photos with him... ..

These ladies  are to die for....I especially  love the purple dress! What was your favorite? Comment below!



I thought I would include my photo from the Yarnspirations booth at
the Prime Blogger event! THE one and only Vickie Howell was there handing out finger knit cuffs!

Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
