My Yarn Talks to Me

So, in my last post I featured this *delicious* Bonbon Lion Brand Yarn.  Some people hear from the  My yarn talks to me.  This yarn said "flowers", so I made flowers.  Then I tried to add said flowers to a tank top pattern, a baby sweater, and a shrug.  I kept hearing "scarf", but resisted the call of the yarn.  Many hours of taking out, rearranging, and re-crocheting (yes, I like to make up words, don't judge :) and finally I relented to the yarn's whim and.....viola!  A scarf.  The yarn's always right!

But I have no idea why this picture is sideways :/  Kinda like me!  Ta-ta for now, Kim

Yarn Candy

I'm on my summer hiatus to Michigan, a much needed respite from the brutal heat of Texas.  At the local yarn store (JoAnn Etc), picked up Lion Brand's Bonbons package--- a pricey (but yes, I still bought it), little bundle of yarn in mini sized skeins.  

I'll let the yarn tell me what it wants to be :)

4th of July Freebie

After working out some kinks, in this pattern, I'm making it available for free. Yup, its a freebie to celebrate our freedom as a country. Cheesy, I know. The pattern uses Iced Bamboo #3 Crochet Thread (a thicker crochet thread you should really try), but I've made a creamy vanilla version using Sinfonia yarn (Available at Hobby Lobby).
