Hello wednesday - Carry yarn

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

I must admit that we had a little problem in Paris the other week about two of our NEW ribbon sayings.  "My stash is bigger than yours" - what is a stash?  Collection of goodies - yes they understood.  The other ribbon was Keep Calm and Carry yarn - not an easy one to explain as it is a play on English words........................maybe I should have thought of this card earlier.

Perfect card to send to my friend.  She had me searching my button suppliers after Christmas for small old fashioned style buttons that looked like "Hot Cross Buns".  I found them and she was over the moon with them.

Back to my hearts, I am not going to show you how to make them, but if you do crochet and can follow a very simple pattern then here goes.

Form a magic ring, chain 3, 3 treble crochet, 3 double crochet, chain 1, 1 treble crochet, chain 1, 3 double crochet, 3 treble crochet, chain 3, slip stich into chain and cast off.  Pull magic circle tight and you have your heart. 

I had a huge pile of these hearts all in different colours, until a little someone spotted them in my studio  - I now only have 4 left!!  The Keep Calm and Carry Yarn ribbon can be found here.  We have sold hundreds of metres of this ribbon in only a few weeks - what have you used yours for?

It is a wonderful feeling, when something you have created is much loved.  Rachie sent me this picture last night.
