Some of the things that have happened in my crochet world this week …
I Won Free Yarn
I had won a Christmas giveaway from Mamma4Earth that happened over at Natural Suburbia and the items recently arrived. I got a couple of cute knitted toys and a skein of lovely rainbow yarn. Not that I needed more yarn, but I’m always happy to try different types of yarn.
I Joined a Recycled Yarn CAL
Recycled Into Yarn is hosting a crochet-along where we are using T-shirt yarn to make crochet soap savers. I’ve never worked specifically with “tarn” although I’ve worked with fabric strips. And I’ve only made one sachet before that wasn’t specifically a soap saver. So this should be a nice little project. The type of recycled product used was voted on by the readers and I have to say that I’m so glad that tarn eked past plarn by just a bit. I think people do amazing things with crocheted plarn but I don’t enjoy working with it myself. I think tarn will be fun.
Blog Comments Should be Fixed
Just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve switched to a new blog commenting system here on this crochet blog. This should eliminate any problems that you were having commenting here. Thanks for sticking with me through that messy transition.
