The Buzz at WEBS

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.

Working at WEBS, a lot of new books come across my desk, and this one really stood out. Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out is full of fantastic patterns that are two projects in one by flipping it inside out. A dog house that transforms into a dog, a bunny that transforms into a sheep, even a chicken that transforms into a fox! These projects look fun to knit, and twice as much fun to give. Kids can easily turn the project inside out to reveal the surprise. I know plenty of adults who would love these as gifts too. > Grace H.

    Absolutely Beautiful! How many Hanks did you use to complete this?

    You realize that you are going to have to restock massive amounts of her color choices. I would have already ordered them had they been available. Might as well get them together as a group! Those are so my colors! Great job Dena! Beautiful!
