Yarn Tasting: Classic Elite

Wednesday, April 10, 2013
The food metaphors seem to abound this week. This past Saturday, I attended a Yarn Tasting sponsored by Mosaic Yarn Studio  and Classic Elite Yarns.


The staff at Mosaic Yarn Studio was very gracious. They served us our wine and appetizers and modeled that garments made in the yarns we were "tasting." This is the swatch I made during the two hours of experiencing the Classic Elite yarns. It consists of (from bottom)
Classic Silk
Giselle
Kumara
Alpace Sox and
Fresco

The yarns were all good to work with, but then I love most
Yarns and I really love color. It was fun to see all the different
color combinations provided to each of us by Classic Elite to stitch with.

It was a fun and relaxing evening attended by about 18-20 women pretty well split between crocheters and knitters in a friendly, bi-stitchural setting!

National Crochet Month: A Fibery Celebration!

Crocheters across the nation have gotten creative in finding ways to celebrate their beloved craft during the month of March for National Crochet Month. Started originally as National Crochet Week by the Crochet Guild of America in 1997,  it has grown and grown and there is so much to celebrate that CGOA changed it to a monthlong event a few years later. Fibery people, CGOA members, and companies large and small are on the bandwagon now to draw attention to all we love about crochet!


What did you do to celebrate? I'm sure we educated many, many of the unenlightened during March ~ but calm down, Ryan...no physical violence allowed; just threaten with a crochet hook!

The Northern IL Chapter of CGOA has wrapped up its celebration  with our annual Crochet Buffet. It is always a feast for the senses and a smorgasbord for the eyes! Thank you to all the chapter members who displayed their beautiful crochet! We also filled the library showcase where we meet with crochet during the month.
