Korea Loves Crochet, Part 2

Hi everyone!

So you might remember my post, Korea Loves Crochet which tracked my crochet spotting in various Korean TV shows (i.e. Kdramas) and movies. Well, I keep spotting hooked up goodness, I've never seen crochet so much on TV before and I love it!!! So here are some more:

Crocheted mittens in "My Spring Day" (There was even a couple of scenes of her crocheting them)

Amigurumi in "Birth of a Beauty"

Granny square afghan in "Modern Farmer"

Sweater, also in "Modern Farmer"

Anytime I see crochet on TV or in a movie, my internal hooking radar immediately goes BING BING BING. lol

Test Hooker for Vivid Fiber Arts!

Hi everyone!

There's a brand new source for gorgeous hand dyed gradient yarns coming soon: Vivid Fiber Arts! I was lucky enough to grab a spot in one of their testing groups so for the past month or so, I've been hooking up this amazingly beautiful yarn into a Goldberry shawl.


One of the major issues, as a crocheter, that I've had with gradient yarns is that instead of this beautiful graduation between colors, I end up with stripes. Which isn't the worst thing that can happen but one of the joys I've had with working with Vivid Fiber Arts yarn is that they've really made an effort to keep crochet in mind and keep me away from the dreaded "stripe".

So here are some early progress shots:



I'm actually further along now, can't wait to post some more pics! For more information about Vivid Fiber Arts, you can check out their website, Facebook, Instagram or their group on Ravelry.
