Yarn Ideas

Introduction

The fun thing about yarn crafts is that every design is completely wonderful and unique. Below is a rundown on the items Martha got quite a 'snitch' of.

The Knitted Table
Special thanks to Lion Brand Yarn Company for making the beautiful table seen during the first segment of the show.

This unique table was produced by the design team of the Lion Brand Yarn Company. The top of the table was designed to look like a grassy hillside complete with dandelions and a butterfly. The legs were embellished with daisies, calla lilies, lavender, and roses. The table was created using the following Lion Brand yarn: Jiffy, Homespun, Wool-Ease Thick and Quick, Nature's Choice, Lion Wool, Lion Cotton, Lion Cashmere Blend Baby Soft, Cotton-Ease, and Vanna's Choice Baby. For more information, visit blog.lionbrand.com.

Knitted Yoda Hat
This adorable and cozy hat was created by Sunshyne Leland (verasunshyne.blogspot.com).

Miniature Knitted Items
These tiny creations by Althea Crome (bugknits.com) are such a big idea!

Amigurumi
Jou Ling Yee (amigurumikingdom.com) made Amigurumi cupcake and animal creatures -- a fun new idea using yarn.

Knitted Postcard
Martha received this wonderful postcard in the mail from Nguyen Le (knitknit.etsy.com) -- it's a wonderful way to say hello.

    Are the directions available for the ruffled neck scarf that was featured in the fashion show? It was made on large needles and with something like "sticky" or "tacky" yarn. Thanks.

    I didn't see any problem at all. I think Jou Ling has every reason to be proud of her work . Her parents should also be proud of her and all that she has done. I to wondered if she might have been inspired by past family histoty, Origami, Japanese. She is very beautiful.
    I really think that is why Martha was asking Ms Yee that question. In todays mixed cultures our beauty lies within and is so often brought out when touched by art. Truely now look at Ms.Yee she does look her age, she doesn;

    If you think Martha was confused so was I. The girl looked oriental and was making a Japanese craft. Don't make so much out of it. She was probably just asking her if this was maybe her interest based on what she thought was her nationality. Since she wasn't Japanese she was probably just curious of the interest. You jump too quickly to calll someone racist.

    Martha is front of the camera all the time. I too noticed that she seemed confused that Jou Ling Yee was not Japenese. Was she told to ask her? or was this just Martha being Martha.

    Dear Disappointed in Martha,
    Unless you speak in front of hundreds of peple who are listening and watching, you will never know what "a mistake" is like. Everyone can be a critic but few people have the talent that Martha has. Confused in NC
