Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Crochet of the yarn variety this time

Greetings !

While my first love is crocheting with thread, I have been moving the most recently with yarn, sometimes I go between the two. I belong to a prayer shawl group at my Church, and so I am working yarn most of the time. My favorite go to yarn is Caron Simply Soft, I don't use anything else. ( I am not compensated by Caron ).  I love the finished product it's soft and has a sheen, it is lovely for prayer shawls. I like to make caplets to and this yarn makes lovely finished product. I like the feel of it as I move my hook, soft and giving to create beautiful shawls.

I finished up a shawl I was working on for next month, and decided to make a wreath for the door. There are a lot of patterns and kinds out there and I settled in on one where I crochet the sleeve and the sew the loose ends together over the wreath. I then in a different Simply Soft color crochet a foundation to crochet the border.

I tried to keep it simple, and just crochet 4 flowers. This was a fast easy fun project to do.

Here's hoping you'll no doubt make something lovely with your favorite yarn, that will brighten your day or that of  someone else.

Movin my hook, until next time
