Knitters Need a Little Holiday Joy Now

Calling all knitters and crocheters. Fresh City Life is having a summer sale on all in-stock yarns. Our selection of yarns will be discounted from 20-30% off. And selected closeout yarns will be reduced to half price. It's a wonderful opportunity for crafters to grow their yarn stash a bit just before the autumn weather sparks an increase in knitting cold weather accessories and seasonal gifts. 

Fresh City Life Yarn Sale, July 7-31

The Subtleties of Hyperbole

Hyperbolic crochet sculpture created by Chris Loffelmacher

This blog about Fresh City Life's newest  obsession, hyperbolic crochet, is genius and will likely be nominated for a Pulitzer Prize! Is this an example of hyperbole or overweening ego? Yes.

It seems fitting that a fibers technique so extravagant and exaggerated as this would carry the name hyperbolic crochet. The name is based not only on the over-the-top quality of these sculptures, but also the hyperbolic geometry that informs the shapes and designs of this craft.

Go Granny Go: Crocheted squares are hip again

Granny Squares are a crocheter's passport to 1970s boho-chic!

It turns out that making granny squares can be a little addictive. They're fast and fun to crochet -- so the squares start to pile up quickly. There are endless color and yarn weight combinations -- so they can be simple or complex, and can incorporate easy or challenging color combinations. And crocheting is very portable -- so it's easy to throw a project in a bag and head out the door.
