Crochet Chinoiserie

Chinoiserie, or Blue Willow China is such an eye catcher, that when in 2011, a customer requested I crochet her Mom a blanket to match her Blue Willow China collection, I was beside myself with excitement.

I do not think I knew, until then that Hobby Lobby had such a great assortment of colors! There were so many blues to choice from.

We collaborated on the color scheme and her Moms blanket was finished just in time for her Christmas SURPRISE! <3

It is crochet projects like this that bring me so much crochet JOY, with the fun new Blue Willow China crochet, HAPPY MOMs and HAPPY DAUGHTERs, a very Merry Christmas'.

Happy Holidays!

Dye Lot Discussion

Choosing yarn in the same dye lot can be crucial to a fabulous crochet project. Below is a great example of why to purchase your yarn in the same dye lot when crocheting, especial for larger, solid color items. 

Below I had crocheted exclusively indoors, with low light, and never checked the dye lot, and imagine my surprise when I went outside to take photos and this is what I shot. I was very disappointed, when I was expecting to see one solid color, and saw this. So you can see how the over all design of your finished item can be affected.

Since this experience, it has been imperative to some of my designs to check the dye lot # on each yarn skein, and make sure they are the same dye lot #'s. Otherwise, you could end up with all your time and work put into something, only to finish and realize this costly mistake. 

Even knowing this, it can be difficult, if not impossible at times, to get yarn all in the same dye lot. This is when I would suggest, do not 'try it anyway', as I did with yes, a second blanket, when I could not find any other option. As an alternative to trying it any way, you can usually purchase yarn online from larger distributor, and get batches of yarn from the same dye lot.

I recommend Hobby Lobby, "I love this yarn!", for their great colors and soft texture. As well as that they have consistently sent batches in bundles, all with matching dye lot #'s! Hooray!!

Hope this information saves you a stitch in time.  :)
