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. icon smile Kathryns Crochet Corner

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.

Tshirt yarn? I must admit I'm not familiar with that. One of the funnest things I've ever made was a rug using rug yarn.

@audreyoka T-shirt yarn is usually made DIY by cutting up strips of a T-shirt and securing the ends together to make a ball of what functions as yarn. However, I've actually started seeing some of the local yarn stores carrying T-shirt yarn for sale that's more uniform in shape and color and whatnot.
