This week, the staff at WEBS is buzzing about…
I can’t believe I finally finished the Valley Yarns Amethyst Brook Crocheted Afghan. Around the time that this pattern was released (almost 3 years ago!) I was looking for an afghan pattern where I could have fun playing with one of my favorite yarns, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. (It’s even in our Anniversary Sale for only $6.99 a hank!) Sara Delaney’s pattern was a perfect fit. While working on this project the past couple years, I was able to develop my crochet skills, have an easily portable project, and learn that randomly placing hexagons can be a beautiful thing. I love my new blanket so much. But what I didn’t expect after making and joining so many hexagons, I kind of want to start another one all over again. For more pictures and details about my afghan, you can visit my Ravelry project page here. > Dena C.
I am having a blast crocheting with the 3/2 Valley Cotton. It has a lovely sheen, and I think the fabric will drape very nicely when I am done. Also, despite being a good sturdy weaving cotton it is fairly soft. I’m crocheting a Shell Brimmed Cloche as a gift, and I think I want one for myself! > Kristin L.
