Yarns and....

Yarns and....

We were lucky enough to have Lorene Van Buren from the Yarn Basket in Pittsburg, KS to bring some of her luxurious yarns and lots of projects she has completed for our Show n Tell. You should have been there. Here are some of what you missed. There is no way I can describe how the yarns felt. Wool that was similar to silk. Linen yarns (I didn’t even knew existed). Just to feel them was an eye opening experience.

Some of the smaller projects had a to be looked at from different angles to be able to see the hidden pictures in them. Love all the different color combinations and yarn types. Way more variety then we normally see in the Joplin stores.

Can’t wait until a field trip to see what else she has in her shop. Have you been there yet?

Black Shawl

Black Shawl

Just look at this shawl and how it drapes. Wish you could have felt it when she passed it around. So many of the yarns and projects just felt sooo soft. No matter if it was crocheted or knitted.

Do you want to see a close up of this shawl…just keep reading and looking.

Thanks Lorene for modeling all of your wonderful projects. And then passing them around so each of us could feel the various types of yarn and get a close up look.

So many choices and so many colors where would a person start! I’m wondering how many that were at this meeting have made it over to the shop yet and how could you possibly make a choice of what project to do with what yarn.

Do you want to see it in red?

This red looks pretty festive, don’t you think?

How about a different style and color?
