    Your crocheted flower hair clips are so cute. I am having a hard time finding Omega Rustica Eclat crochet thread. Is there another thread you would recommend. I am very knew to thread crocheting, so I no nothing about the weights, needle size requried, etc. Thanks for you help and for the pattern! Corlyn Miller

    • Hi, Corlyn! I originally found the pink thread at Hobby Lobby, but you can also order it online from Creative Yarn Source here: http://creativeyarnsource.com/rustica.html I would probably recommend a size 10 cotton crochet thread as an alternative, it will just have a slightly different texture because the Omega is non-mercerized, which makes it a little softer. You should be able to find suitable thread by Aunt Lydia or maybe Red Heart in your local yarn store, though. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions! -CL

    I am looking for a crochet pattern using Baby Bee Lambkins Baby Boucle yarn. I only have 2 skeins of this yarn and each skein is 230 yards. Hope you can help me~!

    • Hi, Lori! I’d recommend either pairing it with another yarn (you can find random stripes generators online that can help design blankets with limited amounts of certain yarns) or working from the center out so that you can simply stop when you run out of yarn. Choose a simple stitch that won’t use as much yarn, maybe a never ending granny square? Ripples also look great with boucle yarns, but again, I’d pair it up with a supplementary yarn. Hope that helps and good luck!
