How I Got Started

Posted by Laura Jackson on

Welcome to My New Store

I have been told I should share my story with you.  So here we go I will do my best.

Tatsiana's Interview tells the beginning of my crochet journey and how I got started.  Click Here Tatsiana has definitely inspired my crocheting and introduced me to Scheepjes yarn.  Thank you Tatsiana.

After the interview with Tatsiana she asked me if I would like to be a tester for her, yes I did a happy dance!!!   I probably danced around for weeks after that, and each time I get sent a new pattern to test, yes I do another happy dance.  I definitely recommend checking out all her patterns, she is a very talented designer.  

You can check out her designs on Lilla Bjorn Crochet at InstagramFacebook and Ravelry.  

The more I tested, the more I started trying out Scheepjes yarn, thanks to Tatsiana, and the more yarn I used, the more I wished it was closer.  It is so soft, squishy, colorful, and looks great too!  The first one to catch my attention was the Stone Washed it gave the projects a whole new life and texture.  I started to pick it out just by looking at projects that seemed to come alive.  Then there is Wanderlust which makes the greatest stain glass effect!

Here are a few of the projects I have tested for Tatsiana:

    The Dove Square


























Amaya Shawl in Wanderlust and Colour Crafter    





   The Amaya Shawl                                                     






    The Roman Labyrinth Pillow  




































Grinda Shawl


















The Grinda Shawl   this one was amazing to make and watch as the whirl worked its magic!  You really need to go to the link and check out all the wonderful projects in so many different whirls.  They each look so unique.  There is also an extension you can add in if you would like it bigger, then you can choose a whirlette to match your whirl.

So as you can see I now happily have a few of Scheepjes wonderful yarns here for me to share with you.  I hope to expand my stock as the business starts to grow. So feel free to let me know what you would like me to add on my next order, I would love to hear from you.
