See it. Try it. Love it! – Finding fabulous fibers

SITILI_Logo_FINAL

All of us here at the Love of Knitting and Love of Crochet office have dedicated ourselves to learning crafty new skills. Each one of us had a specific skill or technique that seemed to both haunt and inspire us. Every time we would see a pattern featuring it, we would think to ourselves, “I NEED to try that!”

See it. Try it. Love it! was born when we realized that all crafters seem to experience this same urge to learn and create. Even if we never move beyond garter stitch scarves, something initially inspired us to pick up our needles and knit our first wonky creation!

We’ve picked the projects that will help us learn our new skills, and now we are in the process of picking our yarn. Sifting through the heaps of fabulous fiber in Jen’s office is always a treat. I love playing with different color combinations and textures, trying to find the perfect yarn for my project.

We’ll keep you posted about the yarns we choose, but be sure to visit us on the Love of Knitting and Love of Crochet Facebook pages in the meantime! Tell us – do you find yarn selection to be a fun part of the process, or would you rather just grab some yarn and get to the crafting?
