  • Knitting All Year With New Basic Yarn

    Often when people mention knitting or crocheting they think of cold weather and snuggling up with a hot cup of coffee (or tea if that’s your thing). However, there are those diehard fans that understand yarn crafting knows no seasonal bounds. So what if it’s 80 degrees and rising outside? My obsession with knitting hasn’t melted. (Even if I feel like I’m going to.) If this sounds like you then you’re probably always on the lookout for yarns that can take you through the seasons. New Basic 175 is such a yarn. This lofty 75% acrylic / 25% wool is light yet warm and looks beautiful in cables, lace, or plain stockinette and garter.

I assumed she was simply amazed that I was turning a string of yarn into a pair of baby shoes before her eyes.

    But she wasn't amazed, she was confused. When I told her, "Yes, I am crocheting" she wrinkled her eyebrows together in the middle of her face and said: "You crochet so weird!"

    At first I felt shocked and a little insulted, then confused myself. I crochet weird? What does that mean? Am I actually crocheting? Has my whole crafting journey been a lie?

    After a brief moment of panic, I gathered myself together to ask her, "What do you mean?"

    "The way you wrap the working end of your yarn, I've never seen anyone crochet like that before."
