>Hand Candy (aka yarn). Works for me. Thanks for the term, Renee!
What goes great with hand candy? A free crochet pattern comes to mind immediately. Almost immediately. Right after coffee (which habitually comes to my mind whenever I have to think about anything), wine (the libation that liberates creative passion and floats the mind past pragmatic crochet concerns like how in the heck is this stitch construction ever gonna work?), and chocolate (for which no rationalization is ever necessary).
For all my crochet friends coming to Vogue Knitting Live in New York City this weekend, 21-23 January 2011, Tahki Stacy Charles Yarns, Knitty City (the upper west side destination LYS) and I have created this awesome promotion. Please stop by the Knitty City booth at the VKL marketplace (booths 2301, 2303, 2305, 2307) to see our lovely design, Variations, a set of three projects in Filatura Di Crosa Superior (the most satisfying hand candy I’ve had the pleasure to sample). Choose your shade of Superior, a gorgeous fingering weight luxury blend of cashmere and silk, and with your purchase, you’ll get this free pattern.
Here is the Wrap Variation, a twisted infinity style wrap. Also included are instructions for a scarf and a stole.
I will be wandering around throughout the event, but if you want to catch me being good and still, find me hanging out at the Tahki Stacy Charles booth from 1 pm on Saturday and signing books at the Knitty City booth from 1 pm on Sunday. Wear crochet so we’ll know each other!
