A little while ago I was approached by some lovely ladies asking if I would like to contribute to a new crochet magazine that was about to be published in the UK. I thought about it for a while and sketched some design ideas and submitted them. The one they liked the most was a lacey shawl/stole idea and off I went with the designing and making stage. 🙂
I’m still waiting for my contributor copy to arrive, so I’ve yet to see the published piccies.. 🙂
Here is one of my own:
Yarn: Jamieson & Smith 2 Ply Lace Weight in Blue x 4
Pattern: My own published in Inside Crochet
I forgot to take a modelled picture before sending it in, but hopefully I’ll get to take one when I get it back.
I hope people enjoy making it as much as I did.
On the babies front (not me), I finished up a couple of small projects:
The first is a Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman made from some of my own handspun and the second is the Abagail Sweater by Kay Squared. There will be a few other baby items that pop up on the blog every now and again. 🙂
Another a house note, I’ve been making dishcloths and to be honest, even though they’re very quick and useful (and I said I would never make any), they’re really not all that to blog about:
The first is the Chinese Waves Dishcloth pattern by Margaret K. K. Radcliffe and the second is a crochet pattern which I saw when visiting a friend and decided I liked. Unfortunately, I decided against paying for the pattern and decided to wing it myself. I like the results and will make more of these and the chinese waves. 🙂
I’ve also been on a startitis mission and have joined the SMSKAL on twitter and have got to the 3rd clue, but really need to get a move on!!
Oh and we’re painting our garden furniture in some pretty cool colours. Piccies when I’ve finished!
Have a good weekend peeps!! 😀
