Made this in a weekend! This bulky and incredibly soft yarn really worked up fast.
Circular knitting machine
I finally decided to purchase a circular knitting machine. I wanted to buy and Addi but before investing that much money in one I decided to use my 50% off coupon at Michael's and I got this one for only $35. I have only been using it for about a week and have already seen... Continue Reading →
Mustard Monarch Wavy Scarf
This scarf ended up measuring 5' x 1'. I used a basic feather and fan stitch and used this monarch yarn that I found on sale in Myrtle Beach. The yarn also has a little bit of glitter in it so that it seems to sparkle a little in the light.
Cotton pot holder
Made this quick and easy pot holder in light blue and white cotton yarn in a linen stitch with a row of single crochet.
Teaching Tunisian Crochet
I had a wonderful time attending the third annual Purl's Yarn Emporium spring retreat at the Blue Ridge Assembly YMCA in Black Mountain, NC the weekend of April 14, 2018. I decided to offer an informal session on Tunisian crochet and 10 people attended! The retreat was much fun!
Red noro scarf
Here's another scarf just finished. Working with this Noro was a bit tricky because it broke a few times. I used five skeins of it for this feather and fan type pattern.
Chunky gray scarf
I finished this scarf in under a week! I used a 10mm bamboo hook and two strands of yarn: King's Road Tweed by Knob Hill and Sublime merino. It's difficult to tell but I used a linen stitch.
Today while rummaging through my stash, I came across a 75% completed child’s scarf. I think it’s moochi yarn but can’t be sure 🙂 so I spent about 45 minutes and finished it. It’s a linen stitch.
Mini bean scarf
I made this scarf with three skeins of Sundance Krinkle Kotton in a mini bean stitch and a size J hook. I’m not sure the color but would say it’s in the salmon/peach family.

I’m really happy with how this scarf turned out! The yarn is beautiful and worked up great. It’s Claudia Hand painted yarns silky wool lace and I decided to use a G hook. The stitch is an iris stitch and is easy to do. You can watch this video to learn how to do it.... Continue Reading →
