This week we had a special guest at our Yarn in the Barn group. Emma, who is the Sales Director at Sirdar joined in with the group bringing along a few extra goodies to share (more about this next week). A little bit like a yarn show and tell. Something that we are all always interested in here at Black Sheep Wools.
One of the ladies in the group (Joan) was teaching Emma to crochet with a gorgeous teal shade of Sublime yarn. When I went in with the camera it looked like she was grasping it pretty quickly, as you can see from the photo below.
Crochet really did seem to be the craft of choice at this weeks Yarn in the Barn. I got chatting to one lady (Cathy) who had made a fabulous bag. The pattern was from an old Sirdar book from Cathy’s stash. She chose to make it in a juicy selection of shades from the Sirdar Simply Recycled Aran range. Also adding an extra bit of sparkle with the Louisa Harding Mila in cream. Cathy had pinned a spotty fabric lining in the bag ready to be sewn. A great bag for holidays on the beach!
The second piece of crochet was from a lady called Carole who has been crocheting with the Rico Romeo yarn. I was that mesmerised by the crochet I did actually forget to ask what she was making. However, next time she is at the group I will definitely be asking. Such a pretty stitch which looks and feels lovely. I couldn’t believe how soft the crochet felt. For some reason I saw quite a dense stitch in cotton and imagined it to be stiff, but not the Rico Romeo yarn.
You may remember from the Yarn in the Barn the Sarah Lund cross stitch that was being stitched. Well it is taking shape now, the border is half complete and much more of the face finished. It won’t be long before we will be seeing this pressed and framed!
