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!

Crochet and Cooking

Crochet and Cooking

Crochet Designer cooking is the same as a head chef, I think. Truly, that is what I am a chef and hook winder! Creating a meal menu with all its components is intricate. From planning the Menu, Purchasing ingredients, Prepping and Timing, all of the components as intricate as laying out a new crochet design. A chef will anticipate your first bite. A crochet designer will anticipate your first glimpse! Both of us anxiously await your reaction!

As a crochet designer, I ask myself many questions like: what thread or yarn, color or colors, technique of stitches to achieve texture, what will the texture be?

Very slowly and sometimes painstakingly, the form I desire begins to take shape. The numbers work out. The vision becomes a reality. My joy builds and my heart beats faster, driving the hook in my hand to the finish line. The finished piece becomes a reality.

Your comments and social sharing goes a long way to boost the inner joy of the designer, me, and I thank you. Many of my followers have written such lovely things about their crochet experience making one or more of my designs. See more on my website Pamela Veller Crochet and Pamela’s Patterns Etsy Shop.
