Alright. I finally jumped onto the Stylecraft bandwagon since Deramores restocked their colour pack. I was going to try the one with 25% wool/75% acrylic, I think it’s called Stylecraft Life DK, but since everyone has such good things to say about the Special, I figured I might as well give it a try. I’m not sure yet whether I am joining Hannah’s CAL (not your average crochet), I might follow along with something smaller, like a floor cushion, using the same stitches. I’m not sure if I’m ready for another big project, but I will likely change my mind 20 times between now and then, so we’ll see.
Here’s another pic of the Greenway, it doesn’t look any different. It is bigger though. I’m still plugging along with the linen stitch too, that’s also bigger but doesn’t look all that different. For the Greenway I’m using Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash, and for the linen stitch I’m working with Knit Picks Stroll Handpaint sock yarn and Noro Kureyon. I figure I would mention it so no one assumes I used the Stylecraft for those projects.
The Stylecraft will be my second foray into crocheting with acrylic yarns, the first try wasn’t too horrible, but I still prefer natural fibers.
