YDT Shop #6 – Crochet Innovations

September 19

Crochet Innovations front

While crochet may be the emphasis in expertise for stop #6 on my Yarn Discovery Tour, there are plenty of delightful yarns to be found for any yarn lover at Crochet Innovations. I like that the yarns are arranged by fiber. As a designer one of my first considerations in matching yarn to a new design is to find the right kind of fiber content that will work for the design’s season, stitch pattern and drape.

Despite several attempts to learn to crochet, I am terrible at it. My hands seem to have a mind of their own; they refuse to do anything but knit if they’re holding yarn. I do love to add crochet edgings to knit pieces, though. So far my edgings have been very simple. At Crochet Innovations I found just the right book on crochet edgings, and hope that I can graduate to fancier stitches if I study it.  If I still can’t get the hang of it, I know where to come for lessons.
