Susan's Hyperbolic Crochet Pouf

A customer came in looking for yarn to make a baby washcloth. While looking for yarn, she saw Susan's Hyperbolic Crochet Pouf and decided to do it instead of a washcloth. Great idea! Crocheted out of Cascade Avalon yarn. Free pattern with purchase of yarn!

April Yarn In 2015

Even though it was tax weekend and the weather was on the dreary side, we had a great Yarn In that made everything seem better.

The food was absolutely outstanding this month. We're so fortunate to have so many great cooks!

Janet captured first place with her Phyllo Dough Pepper Tarts. 

Valerie created a Taco Casserole and received second place.

Diann stated she thought of the Yarn In during her trip a few months ago and bought a mix to create her Triple Berry Cheesecake. It was delicious and won third place. 

Show 'n Tell:

What a dramatic shawl! I love the colors that Denise chose. Yarn: Malabrigo Arroyo. Pattern: Scalene.

Denise is modeling Beverly's hat that she knitted out of Malabrigo Silky Merino yarn. Pattern: Valerian.

Anita did a wonderful job knitting this gorgeous shawl. Unfortunately, the beads just don't sparkle in the picture but they really added so much to the shawl. Pattern: Holden Shawlette. Yarn: Mad Tosh Lite. 

Denise is doing double duty here. She's holding one sock that she knitted and the other sock was knitted by Linda P.  Yarn: Regia.

Can we all say, "Aaaahhh."? This knitted rabbit is just too adorable. A couple of weeks ago, Paula's daughter came into the store and picked out the color for her special rabbit. I think she made a wonderful choice. Pattern: Sophie. Yarn: Universal Cotton Supreme DK.  What a treasure to cherish for years to come!

Kathy used Opal Sock Yarn to knit this sock while on a long trip across the ocean.  Now, just the second one to go, Kathy!

Cindy models her shawl knitted out of Fiesta Boomerang yarn and using the pattern, Quaker Yarn Stretcher Boomerang. Beautiful job, Cindy!

It's difficult to see in the pic but Carol is holding the hat she knitted out of Malabrigo Worsted. Boy, does it feel so soft. Great job, Carol!

Remember the May Yarn In will be from 4-8pm but the time will change to 2-6pm starting in June. 

Thanks to everyone that joined us on Saturday!
