Chunky Lace Infinity Scarf-Crochet Scarf Charity Drive

I will just admit, I am a horrible blogger! I try to do it more often and be more interactive with it, but I just cannot find time, nor anything to blog about.

That being said, I was asked to be part of a Crochet Charity Drive hosted by my friend Sonya at Blackstone Designs. Over the last few months, several amazing designers have taken their time to create a new scarf pattern, or donate an existing pattern for the drive. I am humbled that I would be asked!

I decided to donate one of my current patterns, the Chunky Lace Infinity Scarf. It will remain free on my blog, or you can download a copy from my Ravelry for only $2.00. So let's get to it!!

I am making a comeback!

Hey, is this thing on? Have you missed me? Probably not because I don't even have that many posts, BUT that is about to change!!

I plan to keep my blog going and making it a more permanent fixture in my business. I will be designing new patterns, (some free!) And releasing them here on the blog! I will be offering sales and discounts as well, so be sure you get notifications of the new posts. I will be sure to post on the page of when a new one is up.

My kids start school on Monday, so that is giving me more time to design while they are away and learning. Leave a comment on the blog of what items you would like to see designed this upcoming fall and winter. If I select and use your idea, you will get a copy for free!!

Please bare with me and stick around as we journey to a bigger and better Yarn Medleys from the Heart!

Braided Hope Wristers Release!




I am so excited to be releasing the 3rd addition to the Braided Hope line! The Braided Hope Wristers are perfect to keep your hands and wrister warm, while still being able to take those photos, drive, or anything else with your fingers!



The stitching in these patterns resemble 3 strand braids, and are repeated around the project. The first part of the collection was the hat, which was designed for the Cancer Challenge, and the name came while I was designing it. 
Cancer is a horrible disease that many people fight! Each strand represents the fighter, the supporters, and the hope that a cure will be found. As you make one or all of these patterns, I hope you think of each of these weaving and crossing paths to form a stronger fabric of hope!


For the release, I am offering 50% off, or all 3 patterns in the Braided Hope Collection for $10!

You can go HERE to directly purchase the newest addition for 50% off, or,

You can go HERE to directly purchase the whole set for $10!


Thank you so much for joining me in the release and continuation of the Braided Hope Collection! Be sure to follow me on Facebook to ensure you do not miss the future releases!
