January 23 - New Comfort Cushion - Perfect for the Lacis Steel Crochet Hooks - Best for Bead Crochet
Crochet HookComfort Cushion

Turn the Lacis crochet hooks handles into comfortable cushioned handles.

I really like the Lacis crochet hooks because you can use a smaller hook than other brands for the same cord size. The actual hook ends have small heads and large indentations for the cord to slide through. This profile, thin head but hook that can handle larger cords without snagging them makes this crochet brand my favorite for tubular bead crochet and bead crochet. But the handles are very thin and really need cushioning.

January 8 - Pantone Color of the Year 2019 compared to C-Lon Bead Cord and More
Living Coral is definitively bright, lively, vibrant yet mellow at the same time. And yes it matches C-Lon Chinese Coral. To lighten it up, add a bit of Pink Lemonade (PL) to the mix. Darken it and make it unforgettable with Poinsettia. Add a bit of Sea Shell or Peach Glow for the bright edges and you capture the coral and clown fish perfectly.

> C-Lon Bead Cord (0.5 mm)

> Tex 400 - Heavyweight (0.9 mm)
Look for Chinese Coral, Pink Coral, or Poinsettia, and Sea Shell.

> Chinese Knotting Cord

We now have an official store mascot!

Cleo got renamed Kumihimo Cleo Cavandoli and is the official store mascot. She is still Cleo for short. She sits on my desk chair in the online store when I am working and keeps me company. She was born March 9th 2011, a triple rescue, we adopted January 2013. She is a 10 lb. foxy doxy with a bit of chihuahua possibly. - Marion

Occasionally she sheds a few hair even though she is small and does not have lots of hair. So please forgive her if you find a few in your package. Packing tape on boxes wrapped on the floor are most affected even though we vacuum often.

Kumihimo Cleo Cavandoli
