This week, we have a few new gorgeous crochet (and FREE) projects we love and want to share, which may create a trend towards hooking. Woot! We also have a few color updates, especially for those who were or are interested in the Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018.
Edinburgh Yarn Festival
Our fearless leader, Debbie D, left for Edinburgh on Sunday. She is heading to sunny (ahhemm) Scotland this bright, warm March to discover all the hidden gems (besides men in kilts) Edinburgh has to offer as she eagerly anticipates the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, scheduled for later this week.
In anticipation of this festival, we would like to introduce a new Fifty Shades of Gradient™ color way we call Lothian, named after the regional district in which the capital city of Edinburgh sits. We’ve also created several four-color kits for the Your Slip Is Showing shawl, by designer Casapinka. The Lothian-inspired kit contains the colors Lachlan, Lothian (variegated), Lothian (Freckles), and Glacier and is being used by Debbie for her Your Slip Is Showing (fabric close up below).
Calling All Hookers
We are always looking for new projects to share and one recent customer question we received was, “Why don’t you feature more crochet projects?” We don’t feature as many crochet projects because all of our employees knit, but not all crochet so…we simply have more eyes on the knitted projects. However, we love our crochet community as well; two of our associates, Glenda and Darci, have been looking at picking up their hooks again. Here’s what they’ve found.
The Lost in Time shawl (at left) is a beautifully-detailed crochet scarf using 775 to 1100 yards of fingering weight yarn and can be a great stash-busting project or can be made using one skein of your favorite color yarn. Designed by Johanna Lindahl, it is currently a FREE pattern available on Ravelry.
The Kaziena Shawl pattern (at right) is a lovely shawl with shell and scallop details, which is perfect for an ombre, gradient, color play kit, or stash-busting fade fiber project. Designed by Kirsten Bishop, it is currently a FREE pattern available on Ravelry.

Happy stitching, y’all!
