About

Welcome to the Poetry in Yarn blog. Home to crochet and knit insights, product and book reviews, and soon an online classroom.

This blog is run by crochet and knit designer Lindsey Stephens.

Lindsey Stephens is a crochet designer and Professional Member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) as well as a member of The National Needlearts Association (TNNA). She has had her designs published in a national magazine as well as by yarn companies, and has taught needle arts and crafting classes in a variety of venues. Lindsey learned to crochet while on a three day road trip when her family relocated from her home state of Texas to Connecticut. When she first arrived in Connecticut, Lindsey owned 2 skeins of yarn. She has been steadily adding to her stash ever since.

Poetry in Yarn is the result of Lindsey’s love of expression and experimentation in fiber arts and her desire to share her discoveries with others.

    You are a WONDERFUL Blogger and your patterns are BEAUTIFUL!!!!
    I’ve been searching and searching and searching for THE PERFECT pattern to make a shawl for a good friend of mine, and on your site I found 2!!! Your Esmeralda shawl and Your Taffy shawl & scarf sets are BOTH perfect!! I have the yarn already, hand spun by me, myself, & I…lol…but I also have some back-up Premier yarns and Berroco yarns just in case I change my mind.
    I have fallen in love with all of your patterns, but I cannot purchase them all, my husband would pass out. He never does understand that as crafters, especially with fiber crafts, there is no such thing as too many patterns, too much yarn, or too much fiber. I used to think it was a “guy” thing, but he knows how to crochet too. He’s the middle child of 3 boys and his mother taught him because when he was younger he was the more Pliable-at least that’s what she tells me now-of the three of them. Well, he’s not so pliable anymore…lol.

    He did say that I could purchase the three patterns on your site because he likes the one for me, and the other 2 for our friend Barb. She let us use her house at the New Jersey Shore in Ocean City, thankfully about a month before Sandy.

    You have a wonderful gift as a designer and a fantastic eye when it comes to color!

    Hopefully I will finally start my own blog this coming year-it’s one of my 3 resolutions.

    I now know if I can do even 1/3rd as well as you are doing, then maybe I’ll get a few people to read it. :)

    Blessings to you!

    Anne
