A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.
Today’s Posts: Luz Mendoza | Kim Harvey-Nash | The Village Yarnery | Green Mountain Spinnery | Daily Giveaway
Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

About Green Mountain Spinnery’s Yarn
Green Mountain Spinnery is a worker-owned cooperative woolen Yarn Mill in Putney, Vermont. Since our founding thirty years ago we have been designing and producing richly colored, must-touch classic and contemporary yarns. To this day, our goals remain unchanged: to create yarns of the highest quality, to help sustain regional sheep farming, and to develop environmentally sound ways to process natural fibers.
All the fibers we use — alpaca, mohair, wool, and organic cotton — are grown in the United States. Unlike most commercial mills, The Green Mountain Spinnery uses no chemicals to bleach, moth-proof or shrink-proof yarns. The result? See and feel our yarns for yourself.
Maureen selected our Cotton Comfort for her Sierra Cowl. Designed and worked up on a trip to California, she thought that the soft hand and elasticity of our 80/20 wool and cotton blend would be ideal.
This DK weight yarn is a perfect weight for a comforting infinity cowl; and just two skeins in lovely contrasting colors hook up in no time for a little accessory that will dress up any glamping trip. Make one of your own to stay cozy warm out of your sleeping bag.
About Green Mountain Spinnery’s Crochet Patterns
Cowl Up!, $7.15
This cozy cowl is worked in Tunisian crochet with a big hook and bulky yarn. It creates a lofty cowl in just a few hours of crafting, that you can curl up with on any cold winter day!
An infinity scarf, crocheted flat and sewn together, it can be worn as a single loop or doubled over for extra coziness.

The Green Mountain Spinnery Yarn sounds amazing! I actually never heard of this company and am really excited to be exposed to it. Last year, my mom and I discussed going to VT (we love it there) and wanted to find out if thete were any lys or spinners-no seemed to have that answer. Now I know of one! I wonder if they let you take tours or just see it being made on specific days of the week?
