Whether I like it or not, math is an integral part of designing and aside from my crochet hooks, is probably the tool I use the most. It's used in everything from figuring out stitch count, sizing, and finding the yardage of yarn used in my designs or projects. This last point is what today's… Continue reading How To Find Yarn Yardage Without Unraveling
Copyright 2021 Yarn-bending.com By far, the single item I made and sold the most of last year were my simple 3 round face rounds, with a total of nearly 150 face rounds!

It's hard to believe that I haven't really posted anything I've been working on. I didn't mean to neglect the site. While most of this strange year has felt really long, the last few months seem to have gone by rather quickly.

I've wanted to have a mobile place to keep my crafting paraphernalia organized, yet easily at hand for a while now. Due to our 2 story house at the time, it wasn't very feasible.
