New Yarn - New Pattern

Limeade: The newest I Hook Design pattern.

I am so excited to share not only this Tunisian crochet design, but introduce a new yarn from Oink Pigments Yarns.  The yarn is  Nimbus a # 2 sock; 80% SW Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon410 yds/100g, 3-ply.

A yummy blend of Merino and Cashmere.  
For this scarf I carried 2 strands together to make it a thicker cozier scarf.  Limeade is long enough to wear several ways.  If you notice that by using two strands together from  different hanks the blending of colors is stunning.  I used   "Dill With It" for this scarf.  The gals at Oink Pigments have great names for the colorways.   Nimbus is one of several new yarns being introduced at TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) this weekend in Columbus, OH. 

I was supposed to be at TNNA in Columbus this past weekend, but had to cancel the travel plans. I fell and tore 2 ligaments in my left hand.  Waiting on hand surgeon appt. So my crocheting and writing is limited with lots of breaks... I can't even tell you how frustrating it is.  I only hope everything works out to be able to still attend CGOA Chain Link in July, the odds are good. 


If you don't know how to Tunisian Crochet and would like to learn  Annie's has a video class by Kim Guzman that will get you on your way...
Limeade is available to purchase in my Ravelry Store and my Craftsy Shop

I Hook Design newsletter subscribers get up to 50% discount on new release patterns for a limited time pre-launch of pattern.

I'm looking forward to using another of the new Oink Pigment Yarns soon.

Do You Have a Fiber Truck? I Do

May / June 2017

I wonder if you have ever seen a fiber truck, a mobile yarn store? I would love to read your thoughts and comments about this truck, your fiber truck experience or your fiber adventures.

I am fortunate enough that my local yarn store, Four Purls Yarn Shop (1 hour and 20 minutes away) in Winter Haven FL, has a mobile yarn truck that comes to  my Village (Farmers) Market once a month October - May. The Fiber Truck was recently featured
