Hello All, It's the ever MIA East Coast Stitcher back again. I am hoping that once I change jobs at the end of this month that I can get back to regular blogging... we shall see......
Anyhoo I have added a new to me craft to my ever changing craft addiction. I haven't been able to learn how to crochet even though my grandmother tried to teach me upteen years ago. I've been watching videos on the weaving and a couple of videos "as Suggestions" popped up on the side, so intrigued I was and I went to watch them and boy oh boy was I saying to myself " that looks simple" And Boom It was!
Not sure if I showed you my yarn stash on my weaving blog post but I'll dig some pictures up later on and show you the ever growing yarn stash 💕
I've been learning the Hairpin Lace Crochet and will be making a shawl. I found the pattern on Yarnspirations
I've done 2 of 5 but the first one is a different brand of Black yarn so may not use the strip on the shawl.
Deb's Devine Designs
Next up is the Broomstick Lace and I am making a scarf. Many videos show you how to do this but I found this video and it's the most straight forward one I have seen. American Crochet Association
Since I just started out with both these, they are a work in progress and I chose what I deem the hardest type of yarn to start with that I found on clearance at Michaels which is the Loops and Thread Cozy Wool Super Bulky #6 in Grey Sky. I bought the last 5 skeins they had.
Now I went from 1 super bulky to 1 that is a light #3 for another broomstick lace scarf with again yarn found on clearance from Hobby Lobby this time, so my small haul run me around $20 on clearance that regular price would have run me around $78 total
You may or may not have noticed a change in the header of my blog. I changed the name to Christie's Creations since I am doing way more than just cross stitch now which I seem to have put on the back burner for a while now and concentrating on making numerous swedish weave & crochet gifts.
That's all for now...
Until Next Time.....
Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles ...xxxx
