Celtic Knot Belt
 
To make this belt I used just one skein of Red Heart's Luster Sheen yarn in Cherry.
I think it would be fun to make in 2 colors - Green and Red - for Christmas.
Please email me if you have any questions about how to make it.

Ladies Night Out Crochet Class

Our Ladies Night Out Crochet Class has been going well and everyone has been doing a great job stitching multiple scarves.  Here we are modeling some of our scarves - some completed and some still in progress. :)

Our first scarf pattern was by Donna Hulka of Crochetville.  I saw her "Easy Beauty Chain Scarf" at the Red Heart yarn booth at the Manchester CGOA conference.  Her sample was made with the new Red Heart Boutique yarn - Unforgettable.  It is a great yarn - It looks like wool but is 100% acrylic (which means it is affordable and comfortable for those who find wool too itchy to wear).  It comes in a variety of variegated colorways. 


Since this Unforgettable yarn is so new, I could not find it in any of the craft stores in town in September (now it is on sale at AC Moore) so I substituted the yarn for Yarn Bee's "Danielle" yarn.  This is a beautiful yarn, too and available at Hobby Lobby.  The photo on the right-hand side of this page shows my sample of the scarf with the Yarn Bee yarn. 


It also comes in a blend of turqoise and browns - very pretty.  During our next class I will be taking photos of all the students' projects to show all the variations we've completed and then I will post the photos on the Student Gallery page (found on the left).
