Yes you can crochet it!

I have been wondering for some time about crocheting with the lace yarn to make the ruffle scarves. It seemed to me that you would be able to do it but just hadn't had the time. Well yesterday I got it figured out and made one in about 2 hours! It is so easy. Now I have more ideas to try. I think crocheting them is really easier then knitting although both ways don't take long

New Hat!! See it at the Yarn Party tonight!

                       Slouch Hat done in Eco Duo Yarn from Cascade.
This yarn was so soft I couldn't put it down! The pattern was easy to follow and I finished the hat in just a couple of days. You will love this yarn too. It comes in 12 natural was hard to pick just one for the hat. See all 12 color selections at Anita's Homespun Treasures. To night is the Yarn Party and this yarn along with other featured yarns will be $2.00 off each skein purchased. You have got to get some of this yarn :-)

Also check facebook for more happenings at the shop.
