Where do you crochet

Design at Home or Library or Cafe or Park Bench?

I’ve often wondered where my fellow artisans design their artistry. If your artwork is portable like mine, I can throw a crochet hook, yarn and a pad of paper to capture the designs I’m making all in a bag and hit the road. I can work anywhere; at home, library or even while sipping a mocha in a cafe!

The most interesting place I’ve crocheted is while we were moving from California to the East Coast and ultimately Ohio. I sat outside many Pawn Shops with my hands busy busy! Of course I made a pact with him, for every Pawn Shop I waited at for him, he owed me an Antique Store trip…..he’s still paying up!

Scratchy Yarn Softens Up

My sister came across a most wonderful article about softening scratchy yarn in your stash pile. I know when I look at mine, I think about many projects that the yarn could be used for. Though, I cringe at the thought of creating something with those wonderful colors at the expense of my fingers! Not to mention the waste of money sitting there too.

Check out the article by Heart Hook Home on their website and get busy reducing that pile of wonderful soft yarn.

What is so great about this article is your going to do laundry anyway right? So easy and economical too. Not to mention you might just go and buy more yarn and who doesn’t need more yarn?

Thanks SIS!
