>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!
>That's beautiful! Great work!
>Wow, that's just gorgeous. The color, the drape, nice. Wish I was in NY I'd come say hi. Have a wonderful time.
>I hit the Knitty City booth at VKL just so I could get this yarn & pattern! Will the pattern be available at Knitty City afterwards (in case my friends want to try it)? I think I'm going to crochet it up in Madelinetosh TML first to get the hang of it, and then work my way up to the Superior yarn 🙂
>Love the blog and everything you do, congratulations!Kisses…
>Hi all. is there any chance this pattern will somehow be made available to us poor Europeans not in the neighbourhood at the right time? Pretty please?
>Looking for Variations? Can you wait? Tahki Stacy Charles is planning a Fall 2011 release of this design.
>Doris, glad you liked my term for luscious yarn! I wish I could have gone to VK Live…hope to see you in Minneapolis.
