I decided to start a blog today about some of my favorite things that have to do with crochet. I love to play with stitch patterns - finding old ones in my collection of old crochet books - and making up new ones to use in my designs. I also love swatching with yarns that are new to me, and yarns that I have used before. I thought perhaps other crocheters and yarnies would enjoy reading about my efforts, seeing pictures of my swatches, and finding out some of the characteristics about these yarns. I also thought that perhaps they would like to swatch along with me (SAL). So this is my goal - swatch, swatch, swatch. And report my efforts to this blog.
I have an ulterior motive in doing this. In July, at the Knit and Crochet Show in New Hampshire, I am teaching a couple of classes where I can use these swatches.
I will try to post some pictures and comments this weekend.
