Interweave Crochet Summer

We're pleased as can be to be gracing the cover of Interweave's Summer Crochet issue!

This is the Love is a Rose Shawl by Kathryn White. It's stitched from our Helen's Lace in 412 Campbell. This design was awarded first place n the 2012 Crochet Guild of America's Design contest. I can see why, it's super cute!

The close up here shows how the row of roses defines a swath of lover's knots. I think my favorite feature is the shamrock dangles. Could they be any more fun?! They speak to my Irish.

The whole issue is nice. There's a California theme going on throughout with stories that include Malibu Garden, LA Times and California Dreamin'. 

There was also a super feature on the Yarnover Truck. Have you heard of it? Think of a food truck, only with yarn based in southern CA. They always get the great stuff first. ;-)

What could be more fun than a yarn store on wheels? Think of the possibilities....
