Crochet! Beautiful Crochet!

We have Open House Knitting & Crochet every Saturday from 11-ish to 1-ish.  Our customers work never fails to amaze us.  Our last featured project from one of our Saturday knitters was a project by a very ambitious beginner knitter. This time we present to you a scarf done by an extremely advanced and thorough crocheter. Although she had no problem breezing through this simple gift, the finished item shows her dedication to her craft. The yarn she chose was Cascade's Cherub Aran and the crocheted fabric shows off the yarn the best we've ever seen. Laura is one of our regulars here at the Yarn Store on Saturdays and she's a constant inspiration to pick up more crochet ourselves.

Lorna's Laces Heaven is 30% off! Yep, you read that right. All skeins of Lorna's Laces Heaven is $59 right now. Type in "I'm your fan!" in the comment line and we'll give you an additional $10 of each skein of Heaven you order. The photo I've included with this post is a close-up of the Easy Pie Shawl which is included on the back of every label of Heaven. (Angelika added the beads herself.)

Henry this great idea after seeing a customer walk in with a crocheted scarf. She had done it out of Lorna's Laces Bulky in Zombie BBQ (yes, that's a color, its pictured above.) It just so happened that the multi-colored yarn ended up in a varied checkerboard pattern! Oh Shepherd wool, what will you do next? Anyway, I found a remnant of some Zombie BBQ we had left over and set it out to do a small crochet sample... then Angelika steals it out from under Henry.  WOW does this hand-dyed yarn do the most interesting things with such simple projects. Another example of the amazing things this color does with small projects is found in a hat in this gallery. Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock through Bulky is fully stocked here at the Yarn Store. We've even got 7 colors no other store can sell!
