Update on the soft yarn knitted hats. The Deborah Norville yarn was wonderfully soft to work with...but... I only got two hats out of the skein. This is my standard Knit-A-Cap pattern. The fact that the yarn skein was only 3 1/2 oz limited how many hats could be finished. As I also wrote before it is not cost effective for donation knitting. But the colors are wonderful so it is unfortunate I won't be using this yarn for my Knit-A-Cap hats. When I took a pix of the two hats I also included the yarn I had left, the tiny strand at the top.
Also here is a pix of the Japanese flowers I have I have finished so far. They are easy to crochet. I have an idea for them but we will see how it turns out before I comment on it.
I had this skein of Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted yarn in my stash. I had gotten it on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It is the most wonderfully soft acrylic yarn I have worked with. It is a 3 1/2 oz/180 yd skein. It is super soft but a little pricey for such a small skein, $4.99 but it was marked on clearance for $2.99. This hat is very soft and has a nice striping pattern. It would be nice for a sweater if you don't mind paying the price. I do so I won't be buying it unless it is on sale or clearance.
Recently I found some patterns for crocheted Japanese flowers on Pinterest. I thought I would make some and see if I liked them. There were a lot of patterns and they were all similar. I did find that there were two differences for the centers. I tried one of each. I am not sure if I like one better than the other. I think that they could be combined in a project and still go well together. Any opinions?
I saw a pattern for Kleenex box covers recently. Since I have never made any I thought I would try it. The pattern is pinned on my crochet board on Pinterest and is from Daniela Herbertz. It is super easy and a quick crochet.
The yarn is Red Heart With Love. The colors are Violet #1530,
Hot Pink #1701 and Daffodil #1201.
