24 ideas for ECY Yarnlings - crochet

We thought you might find it useful to have a list of ideas of things to crochet with our Yarnlings!  Since we sell a box of 24 pairs of 5g 4ply Yarnlings (inspired by the Catvent box) HERE it would make a great project to do to get you through the dark December days - or indeed any other days to be honest! Maybe you might use them as part of a bigger project, or maybe you might want to make something like one bauble in one colour per day. With 2 x 5g of each colour you could mix...

Yarn, knitting, and crochet related gift ideas for 2021 - the ECY Gift Guide

It's that time of year again!

Your 2020 gift guide for a yarn fan, knitter, crocheter, or yourself! 😍

I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a very different year to what we could possibly have anticipated! With no idea what's going to happen in December (yes we're meant to come out of lockdown on the 2nd but I don't think you can bank on anything right now) we're all having to get creative with gift-buying and sending. In England a lot of retail shops are currently shut and we're not *really* meant to be going out unnecessarily, so I'm sure that like us a lot of you will be looking at buying online. Of course...

Introducing: The Shawl Project Book 5 from The Crochet Project, featuring laceweight yarn!

The latest book from Joanne and Kat of The Crochet Project has arrived. Book 5 is a bit different from those that have come before as it features designs using laceweight yarn.

This book combines the great design you would expect from Joanne and Kat along with the delicate elegance created with laceweight yarn. Find it on the website HERE. All five designs are pitched at intermediate crochet skill level but the Love Triangles Shawl can be adjusted to...
