The Yarn

You can find “Everyday” at Premier Yarns in the Deborah Norville Collection. This is a 100% anti-pilling acrylic yarn that is machine washable and dryable. There is a beautiful palette of solid colors and prints that are specially designed to coordinate. I love that the yarn comes in 4oz balls with approximately 203 yards per ball on the solid colors, 3.5oz balls with approximately 180 yards on the multi-colors.

A Nice Yarn Service

With yarn and craft supplies being a little hard to come by in this day and age, provides a nice service by selling the pattern and the yarn all on one site. They do a really nice job of supporting their Indie (independent) Designers, of which I am one, and their customer service is excellent.

Thank You For Reading My Post

I hope I have inspired you to pick up some yarn and a hook. Crochet just seems to be the perfect venue for accessories, and one of my favorite things to crochet are bags and purses. Having been in fashion for a while, and it looks as if they will remain, make your fashion statement with a crocheted bag or purse. You can view my other purse patterns by going to the main menu and clicking on My Patterns> Patterns for Women’s Wear> Accessories> Bags and Purses.
