I've kind of been saving this little tidbit, and it feels like a good time to pull it out of my "Ideas" folder and share it with you all.
If your favorite yarn is mass produced or manufactured, you should enjoy this video by…

Well… we have finally started cleaning out the rooms of yarn and have made (difficult) decisions to part with some of our yarn stash. Okay… it wasn’t that difficult because de-stashing our yarn means we will have more room to expand the studio. WOOHOO!!
Let the de-stash begin! go to http://shibaguyz.com/yarnstash and you can shop from our own personal yarn stash.
We have uploaded the first part of our…Continue

I want to do this every few months, so let's start here now.
In ONE word describe crochet. Leave it in the comments…
Hey crochet friends!

Thank you for feeding the curiosity…Continue
I have pretty yarn and I don't know what to do with it!
The yarn : Ito Gima 8.5, a pretty cotton laceweight tape, in a rich purple, and some off-white too. I know what I want to do with it : a summer top with a square neckline with a bit of off-white lace on it. The only thing is, I'd want to show off the tape texture. It would be murder if I used only single crochet! So I'm trying to think very hard of a stitch that would show it off and all I can see is Solomon's knots, but that's…Continue
Wow! I'm actually super glad that the social side of CLF 3.0 didn't work on our website! I love this platform, I don't have to code anything, I can just be a crocheter here!
I am so blessed that the CLF 3.0 experience is shaping up as I envisioned and dreamed. I guess I'll always be Fearless Leader over on the Crochet Liberation Front website, it's a moniker that works for me there. But, here on this site, I want to be me, Laurie A. Wheeler.
Who is this Laurie A.…Continue
