  • Adorned for Summer

    The seasons have changed, but we here in Colorado seem to have jumped directly from Winter to Summer. My wardrobe has performed the same leap from snowboots and wool socks to sandals and skirts. The wool and alpaca yarn has temporarily been tucked into drawers and shelves, and I have pulled out the bright...

  • C is for Crochet

    A little while ago, I wrote about a couple of baby hats I made especially for twin boys. To help Mom & Dad out, I crocheted their initials and attached them to the wee loops at the top.

  • Crochet Lace

    Little thread, tinier hooks, wait let me find a magnifying glass. I love crochet lace. The delicate intricacies of the stitches and patterns of lace drew me to this exciting art form when I was a child. One of my first projects was a doily. The stitches were too tight and the doily refused, despite blocking...
  • Go With the Flo to Crochet a Garment with a Smooth Finish

    We're still hooked on this loopy topic of where to put the hook. A couple of weeks ago we saw how crocheting through the back loop only makes a ridged, stretchy fabric that is really outstanding in the Big Bow Cardigan . Crocheting in the front loop only (flo) makes a fabric that is smooth and taller...

    Designer Kristin Omdahl loves math. I do not love math. This difference creates a perfect match. Math is the foundation of some really smart patterns that produce really lovely results, but I want someone else to do the math. That's where Kristin comes in. My favorite Kristin Omdahl pattern is the...
