ACCROchet and Pure Laine, Etc : BFFs


Aussi en / Also in frFrançais

I recently visited Pure Laine, Etc in Saint-Sauveur & the shop’s owner, Sylvie Bouchard, whom I’d met at Twist in August.

Sylvie wants to attract crochet addicts to her shop, and as crochet is my meditation & creating addictions my mission, I left the shop with yarn for 3 specific projects that are now in place to get some attention.

Here are the project details :

Visage Lace Beret, Ravelry project page

This pattern by Kristin Omdahl has always fascinated knitters who refuse to believe it’s crocheted. I love making this beret in between projects (available as part of the “Crochet so Fine” e-book on Interweave crochet). Follow the link to my Ravelry project page & fascinate in turn.

 

Crocheted Rib Cowl, Ravelry project page

This giant cowl is totally the sort of thing I want to wear when I’m reading in my sofa with a hot cup of tea. Love love love the texture of the yarn & ribbed effect.  You’ll find the link to the free PurlBee pattern on my Ravelry project page.

3-way cowl, Ravelry pattern page

This cowl was inspired by the texture & crazy colours of Katia’s USHUAIA super-bulky yarn. When you find yourself faced with this type of yarn, you need a simple stitch to show it off.  A detailed stitch will not show the stitches or the yarn in a good way.

So.  Between my medical appointments and yoga and meditation, I find time in the evening to comfort-crochet.  I like knowing that some of these creations are now part of a super comforting shop in one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the province.
