Welcome to Yarn Slave

Because we're all a slave to our passions

World Wide KIP (Knit In Public) Day is Saturday, June 11, 2005

Knitting, crocheting, machine knitting, knitting looms, anything to do with yarn, it's one of my passions. If you feel the same way, you'll enjoy your visit here.

Some of the things I like to make


Nubby, fluffy, loopy, furry!! I love novelty yarns and there's no better way to try out a new yarn than a scarf. And when a luscious yarn is way too expensive for my limited budget, the yarn for a scarf doesn't break the bank. Scarves are small, portable and are great for teaching a new technique. I love to both knit and crochet scarves and I must do at least one scarf a week.

Take a closer look at some of my scarves. There's some patterns here too.

Ponchos, Stoles, and Wraps

After living through the 80's and 70's, I had my reservations about the return of the poncho. But, ponchos, and their close cousins, shawls and wraps, are really just bigger scarves. And when I saw the "Martha" poncho, I broke down and made one for me. I used the Lily Chin pattern from Interweave Press - http://www.interweave.com/knit/events/freedom_poncho_pf.asp - for my poncho. And do I ever feel "hip" at the Little League Games!

More ponchos I've made - Includes WIM patterns
