I'm conducting a research project for a marketing assignment, and you could really help me out! You get the opportunity to talk about your favorite products, and I'll get some material for my ten page paper. Everybody wins! Some of the questions I'm looking to answer are: If you could crochet/spin/knit with any fiber what would it be? If all fiber was priced the same, what would you purchase? What fiber do you think is the highest in demand? Do you feel there is a drastic shortage of a particular fiber? What would your dream/perfect/miracle fiber be (100% Merino, 50/50 yak silk, etc.)? Anything helps! Thank you so much
Starts June 21st, 2014 and if you can come by the shop, we will start at1 pm. Spring & summer is here and a nice crocheted shawl for those cool evenings or air condition spaces would be great to have, especially because you made it yourself! You can choose from two patterns: V-Stitch & Scallop Shawl: http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LC4100.pdf Lion Brand free pattern library: http://www.lionbrand.com/printablePatterns/WildFlowerShawl.pdf Both patterns are intermediate that with help most can do either of these patterns. I made a few changes (of course) when I made my V-stitch & scallop shawl. I used Bamtastic yarn from Plymouth (a nice bamboo & nylon mix which adds bounce to my shawl) and a "F" hook. It took three balls. This allowed me to shorten the number of rows needed for the body to 54 rows before adding my scallop trim. For the Wild Flower Shawl I used Saucon Sock from Kraemer Yarns. It's a cotton, acrylic & nylon sock yarn with about 231 yds per skein. The yarns are available at most local yarn shops. If needed they are available from my shop @ 856.669.1131. Because there is 430 yds per skein of Saucon Sock yarn I will half the skein for all colors (except black), and half the cost as well.
Not sure if this is the right section for this, but don't forget the 103rd Annual Connecticut Sheep, Wool & Fiber Festival! It's in Tolland, CT. http://www.ctsheep.org/sheep_and_wool_festival I've gone for the past few years, and it's a lot of fun! They have booths, sheep, llamas, alpacas, workshops, classes, etc.
