Lindsey Stephens ~ Poetry in Yarn Round Up

I recently met an amazing woman and wonderful designer: Lindsey Stephens of Poetry In Yarn. She is super fun, and her designs are delightful! She has both crochet and knit patterns, many for sale, and some free as well.

I made the flower from her Flower Necklace pattern. I made it a bit bigger and with a looser gauge than in the pattern because I want to hand stitch it onto a piece of felt and attach it to a headband for one of my daughters. It will be adorable! The pattern was very well written and easy to follow.

Lindsey Stephens Flower

Here is a little of what Lindsey has to say about herself:

“Lindsey Stephens is a crochet designer and Professional Member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) as well as a member of The National Needlearts Association (TNNA). She has had her designs published in a national magazine as well as by yarn companies, and has taught needle arts and crafting classes in a variety of venues. Lindsey learned to crochet while on a three day road trip when her family relocated from her home state of Texas to Connecticut. When she first arrived in Connecticut, Lindsey owned 2 skeins of yarn. She has been steadily adding to her stash ever since.

Poetry in Yarn is the result of Lindsey’s love of expression and experimentation in fiber arts and her desire to share her discoveries with others.”

Busy, busy, busy

Hello friends! I feel like we haven’t chatted in a long time. I’ve posted patterns and product reviews and round ups and such, but no chatting. Things have been very busy for me lately. We left on June 30th to go visit my parents in Sicily, and we just got back late on July 15th. It was a lot of fun, but I got rather behind in my schedule. So I have been working hard to catch up. The rest of the summer looks to remain busy as well.

I haven’t had the time to go through the nearly 2,000 photos taken by myself, my husband, and my parents, that are now all on my laptop just waiting for attention. I’m sure 1,000 of them can be deleted, but still, that’s a lot of photos!!! This one may be my favorite right now. It was taken on the way up Mt. Etna.

I do hope to share about my trip with you, but it will most likely be closer to the end of the summer before that happens. There is still more busy coming up. In the meantime, I have patterns, round ups, and lots of knit and crochet fun to share throughout the summer.

Twisted and Twirled Knit Necklace #1
Knit Pattern
Easy Skill Level

The first necklace in the Twisted and Twirled Knit necklace series is made with a simple garter stitch in the round, this means knit and purl stitches. It has 3 twists in it, and lots of fun hanging ends. This playful necklace can be worked up quite quickly with less than 30 yards of fingering weight yarn. It can be made with or without a knot at the end for a fun little detail.

The yarn used in this sample was donated by Miss Babs for the Marly Bird Designer Dinner at the summer 2015 TNNA Needlearts Trade Show.

This necklace is part of the Twisted and Twirled MKAL (Mystery Knit ALong).
