March's theme is Crochet! Yep, it's National Crochet Month and we here are America's Knitting are crochet friendly.
I have great respect for the craft and have tried to learn many times. I know how to do it, but we don't get on very well...let's just say.
Please spread the word, and email over your projects for me to post to the page.
It's been pretty quiet around here during crochet month on the project page. Leave it to Carmel to come through for us not only with diversity from her knitting, but with a classic, the Market Bag. Here she made not only 1 but 2, using Fantasy Naturale by Plymouth. The pattern is for sale at So Much Yarn, up above the Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington. SO, if you are traveling to Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle, you'll have to visit the market AND So Much Yarn!
Karen McKenna, in Florida, is a champion for crochet. Here is a display she did for the
local branch library, in Naples Collier County Florida. Nice work Karen. To learn more about Karen, check out her blog.
Check this out...the girls from Nonna's Yarn Cafe, Denville, New Jersey, are modeling their granny square cardigan. I love all the different colorways used. It's so fun to see it on 4 different gals. I really like it. I don't know of the pattern or yarn used, but it's so fun -- thank you ladies!
We are starting things off with the Tarn Market Bag by Celia Wirth. Tarn stands for T-Shirt Yarn. Celia used 8 shirts for this bag, ranging from brown to pale pink. The pattern for the bag is a free Ravelry download -- thank you Celia!
