Amazing Threads Retreat Registration and Crochet Classes Added

Where on earth has summer gone? It's hard to believe that the State Fair starts this week and it's almost time to send the kids back to school.  We've been having some beautiful weather, so that makes it easy to enjoy these last couple of weeks.

The Loops and Ridges scarf is a lovely crochet pattern with lots of texture.  It uses worsted weight yarn, so consider Malabrigo Rios or Plymouth Encore for lots of color options.

The Forest of Firs socks use a slip stitch pattern to give it the forest-like texture.  Knit in fingering weight, we recommend La Bien Aimee Super Sock or Six and Seven Fiber's Alfalfa.

This crocheted granny square cardigan is so cute!  Ariana is a cardigan crocheted using worsted weight.  Take a look at Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok worsted or Plymouth Worsted Merino SW.


We're loving the texture and pattern on the front of this pullover.  Crossvine is knit in aran weight yarn for a quick knit.  Check out Juniper Moon Fourteen or Rowan Felted Tweed Aran.
