Be Sweet is a new yarn yarn company for us at Stash. It may not be local, but its mission is close to our hearts:
Be Sweet was founded on the principle of being kind to others. [The company’s] mission is to bring socially and environmentally friendly products to fashionable consumers that evoke an individual style and help support community development around the world.
Be Sweet works with job creation programs to give artisans the confidence and the means to support themselves and their families in otherwise economically depressed regions. “I started Be Sweet to support innovative craft that can be made by those less fortunate. Our products embody the ideals of beauty, creativity and resourcefulness.”
As soon as I saw this T-Shirt Yarn, I knew we had to have it at Stash. Fun, funky, and versatile, this is a perfect yarn to play with. It can be knit, crocheted, braided, tied, woven, and more. Just use your imagination! Be Sweet has included a free pattern on the ball band for this charming Honeycomb Clutch by Tanis Grey.
Let me tell you, this was the perfect instant-gratification project! I knit up this sweet clutch in an evening and popped a bright vintage button on it in the morning. You could easily get 2 of these sweet bags from one skein. Or, you can do what Cinnamon did, and make this fun necklace with some of the leftovers! We added a sweet felt flower pin for that extra little something.
Happy Friday, everyone. Did you know the Downtown Corvallis Farmer’s Market starts tomorrow? Yippee! It’s just 2 blocks from the shop, so stop in afterward to see what Farmer’s Market day specials we have going on. Hint, hint…
