Get Your Hooks Out

Thought it was about time that crochet was mentioned.

It's time to get those hooks out and get creating. We have a few pattern ideas for you that whip up quickly. Whether you want to make something for yourself or as a gift for a family member or friend.

Without further adieu:

Designer: Tamara Kelly
Hook: 4.0 mm G
Yarn: Worsted (102 yds)
It's not too late to make a neat pencil case for those who are hitting the books, or even to be used as a coin purse. There are no end to the possibilities. It would make such an adorable gift.

Hook: 8.0 mm L
Yarn: Super Bulky
Who couldn't use another basket? You can put towels, yarn, bathroom supplies, toys or even books in it. It's a great way to let visitors know that a crocheter lives there. 
Designer: Jen Atchison
Hook: 4.0 mm G
Yarn: DK (200-250 yds)

This hat is so cute and comfy. Very laid back and in style. This wouldn't take long to make up and if you wanted to make it a solid color than it would go even quicker. I'm thinking fast Christmas gifts. :)

Hope you enjoyed the suggestions and can't wait to see what you have all been crocheting lately!

Fall Thinking

Fall is coming up quickly. Now I know it's hard to think about when it's 100 degrees outside but at night you feel that crisp breeze that reminds you that your needles need some wool on them soon.

Here are a few things for you to think about:
  • Bulky wools
  • Sweater set ups
  • Digging out all those Got Your Goat Cards to combine them to get a full card for 20% off your purchase
  • Small winter knits (gift tags, ornaments, key chains, stocking stuffers)
  • Gift cards
  • Purchasing samples for those who want hand made but you just don't have the time
We have all that you need and are here to motivate you to think about the future. It's closer than you think.

Look at that little cutie. Well guys, Goat Your Goat Yarn Studio now has a mascot! This kid was a gift from a customer and it doesn't have a name. We thought we'd have a little contest to name our new friend.

Everyone can participate and we hope that you do because not only will you get to name the goat, but you'll also receive a little prize. So leave your name for him or her, whichever you come up with and we'll choose the winner at the end of the month and announce it.

You can leave your entry in the comments for this post, on ravelry , on facebook, or even stop by the shop and leave it will us. We can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
