What we learned from our knitting:
Crocheted Heart (called “guest Lapel Pins” in Ravelry) designed by Jennifer E. Ryan.
Margaret played with crocheted hearts from DIY Wedding by Jennifer E. Ryan either in Interweave Crochet Summer 2015 or as a special collection on the Interweave Website. They were cute, quick and fun. They are called Guest Lapel Pins on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/guest-lapel-pins
Catherine shares Towashis she received from her swap. One was made of a worsted cotton, the second from sugar and cream and the third was sugar and cream with a portion from the specialized yarn, Sugar and Cream Scrubby which is more specialized to be “scrubbier.”
Tawashis Catherine received from the scrubbie swap.
Scrubbies Catherine made using hemp yarn.
