Yeah, yeah, I know year’s retrospective…it’s coming I promise! In the mean time may I please be allowed to amuse you with my most recent obsession?
Jelly Yarn. Yes, you heard me, Jelly Yarn. Yes, it is my new obsession. It just arrived today. Talk about blow my mind!
First of all I wouldn’t have figured it to be as supple as it is, and yet, it is very supple. Using lotion or lip balm on your hook makes it really glide, but I found I had to be a little careful with how much I put on my hook, otherwise it became a little too slippery for me to work with.
So here’s the first of my experiments with ye olde Jelly Yarn!
- Made from “Vanilla” Jelly Yarn, it glows in the dark!
So, I’m working making it “block”…not that I really tried blocking it this morning, I basically got the yarn out of the box, picked up a hook, put some Bert’s Bees Lipbalm on it, and away I crocheted. I am liking it so far!
My next crochet attempt was with a crocheted rose, single petal at the moment, since I had to actually get some work done today, but I will more than likely at least edge it with the pink glow in the dark Jelly I have too…and the rose shall be part of a funkified belt I’m designing for my daughter 🙂

Ok folks! Listen hard, listen up, listen loud. 🙂
I’m only one person here, and lately I’ve been saying a lot of things you’re agreeing with…so here’s the deal. Why not take our protest to the wider blog world…
Instead of a meme…Let’s do a round robin, or a simultaneous list of our favorite things about crochet?
So, do this for me, and pass it on in your message boards, and email lists.
If you have a blog, make a list of your 25 reasons you love crochet!
Do it anyway you want, 25 photos, or a list, I don’t care how you do it, but when you DO blog this, come back here and link your blog post so I can see your wonderful work!!!
Let’s show ’em folks! Let’s be proactive. Cause believe you me, we buzz enough & they’ll try to steal our ideas 😉 LOL
