  1. Maybe you could shrink down my blanket square https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chanukah-afghan
  2. Two recent blog posts: Flashing my Crochet Stitch Dictionary Stash What There Is To Learn About Seaming Crochet
  3. I've released 4 new patterns over this month: Radio Waves Scarf Seamless keyhole scarf. Panacea Wrap It transforms from wrap to cowl. Simply Classic Mitts 5 sizes included. Onodrim Shawl One shawl to rule them all. Whether your skein has a little more yardage or a little less, instructions are included to make the most of the yarn you have. Includes crochet symbol diagrams.
  4. Oh! I didn't see it was on sale! Sorry the $5 discount is off the regular price, so if its on sale for more you get that lower price instead.
  5. I'm not sure if this counts as a sale or a coupon. My class, Seaming Crochet, just launched online on Craftsy. You can use this link for $5 off the class price. EDIT TO CLARIFY: $5 off the normal full price. If the class is on sale for more than that, you'll get the sale price instead.

  7. I looked over and searched through the help documents and couldn't find info on this. Is it possible to change my user name from Leebah to PoetryinYarn, and, if so, how?

  10. I agree with Rose Red. There will be a problem if it's worked in the round. You could try turning after every round. Alternatively, I've seen doilies painted with thinned acrylic paint. Try that on a small swatch to see if you like the effect.
