I spent several hours at City Knitting Saturday swatching yarn for the crochet dress I want to make. I'm thinking about this blue...
And see that crochet hook? I am truly in love with it. It's an Addi Turbo, my first Addi crochet hook. The link is purely for illustration I got mine at City Knitting for $6.50 which seemed quite reasonable. It's an amazing tool! If you crochet, you have to try one. I'll be getting more ;-)
I'm not sure that I'm crazy about the blue yarn after giving it a few looks. I think it's gonna be like the peach yarn I used for the tank top I crocheted - then sold to a co-worker because I was tired of looking at it. I'm thinking I like the shine and texture of the cream Microspun better. If you look at the top of the following picture you'll see the swatch I made with the cream Microspun. It's shiny and very soft. The Gedifra yarn, while woven and not splitty like the Microspun is heavier and has no shine.
Here's a side by side comparison...please ignore the guage! I did the Microspun on a "G" and the Gedifra on an "E".
Any and all opinions would be appreciated. Thank you
Killer Biller, completed 3/23/08. Scout's Swag, Kill Bill colorway, size 1 circs, Cat Bordhi's Simple Sock. One is ever-so-slightly shorter than the other but I'm trying to stretch it to match, lol.
I actually like this pose better...
so now it's on to Charlene Schurch's Ribbed Lace socks with that luscious eggplant color yarn I showed you a few days back. Hope I'm up for the challenge.
Hey, everybody, there's a really cute swap you can sign up for here . It's gonna be fun! Go sign up by March 27th! Maybe I'll get to make you a wee tiny sock!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!
