|Fiesta Yarns La Boheme--Tiger Lily|
A unique benefit of knitting and crocheting is that the crafter may surpass their own expectations. Many people sell or give their handcrafted projects away as birthday and other special gifts that are often kept for many years. The quality of yarns used in the item play a large role in its useful life. Fiesta's yarns are high quality, long lasting, and should be used for handmade items that will look beautiful and last.
For a unique look on an upcoming project, choose hand dyed yarn. The color variations make the yarn more unique than standard colors, making the finished project look more special. In particular, the vibrant blues, purples, and greens of hand dyed yarn are very flattering and popular for projects such as scarves, shawls, and hats. The handcrafted item may earn the owner many compliments. It will maintain its color with proper care, sometimes outlasting mass-produced items in stores. When cleaning, wash the item in cold water to reduce/eliminate color transfer and lay the item flat to dry. This simple washing process is very useful with all colors and more importantly so for darker colors.
For a contrast of shine and matte, La Boheme yarn is the go-to choice. La Boheme is a versatile, hand dyed luxury yarn. Fiesta La Boheme yarn combines brushed kid mohair and rayon boucle for a visually appealing contrast. It can be used to make vests, scarves, hats, or sweaters and depending upon the type of item, it's possible to wear this yarn type year round. It is popular material used for sweaters, vests shawls, gloves, and hats for cold weather recreation due to its look, comfort in use, and texture. Depending on how compact the stitch is, it can be worn in warmer weather as a shawl, scarf, or hat.
For a modern twist on an upcoming project, try using crochet beads. Using some basic stitches, crochet beads can be made at various skill levels to add a special touch. A crochet bead necklace can be versatile, unique, and for the sensitive skinned, even hypoallergenic. The time it takes to make a crochet bead necklace typically decreases with the increasing number of necklaces made.
Another unique project is a crochet beaded bracelet. Using a variety of textures and colors, a crochet bead bracelet can be a good conversation starter or gift for all ages. Some people enjoy extra sparkle while others prefer unique beads. Making a crochet bead bracelet is a fast project to try when you need something new, quick, and creative. Using one's imagination, attractive and coveted looks can be created for a fraction of the price of that found in stores.
