I must admit, fellow YarnThings, that I did not already have a project ready when I announced the meeting. So for the last few days I’ve been searching online and in stores for a project that would be easy, fun, and wearable.
I found it today while I was in Barnes & Noble. My project is the sweater on the cover of Interweave Crochet – It’s a 3/4 sleeve cardigan with an asymmetrical front, and a bow tie at the neck… all done in single crochet! In one piece! I have this lovely teal yarn that I’m going to use. Now I just need to find a buttons for the front.
I’m so excited to bring this project to our meeting next month. It makes me wonder what kind of things my fellow YarnThings are going to be bringing and what patterns and projects have you salivating like I am over this cardigan.
Will you be knitting? Or crocheting? Are you using thick yarn or thin yarn? Wool, silk, cotton, or acrylic yarn? Don’t you just thrill at the choices you have when you pick up that skein or ball of yarn?
I’m so looking forward to our first meeting and seeing all the exciting choices that you, my fellow yarn lovers, have made with your own projects. Hopefully, the group will cause ua all to to be encouraged in our crafting, expand our mental horizons, and engender a greater sense of community and sharing. So, pick your project… and join Seattle YarnThings on February 10!
