Once again, I’m honoured and delighted that my pattern has been chosen for a workshop. This time, River City Yarns in Edmonton, Alberta is organizing a crochet workshop based on my Jamie vest pattern. River City Yarns is owned by two sisters and business partners, Barb Barone and Cynthia Hyslop. You can find more details about their wonderful store here and the Jamie workshop here.

Gina in Crochet One-Skein Wonders for Babies

I’ve been checking my mail almost everyday for the last couple of weeks. Finally, my copy of the newly published “Crochet One-Skein Wonders for Babies” is in the mailbox today.  I still haven’t got over the excitement — the short sleeve version of my Gina floral lace baby/child cardigan is in the book, beautifully illustrated on page 123. It’s absolutely delightful to see the cardigan looking so adorable on the little cute model.

Thanks Gina, I wouldn’t have done it without your encouragement and help! (And yes, the little cardi is named after the wonderful Gina, my Ravelry friend.)

New Kits in Town!

Two of my babies —  Iris and Jennifer — are now new “kits” in town!  The kits (pattern + yarn) are now available for purchase on the Craftsy site – the Iris kit can be purchased here, and the Jennifer kit is here with many colors to choose from.

Iris – fern lace loop scarf (knit)

Iris - fern lace loop scarfFeaturing a classic fern lace stitch pattern and scalloped edges, this knitted loop scarf makes an elegant accessory to your wardrobe. Usage of soft contrasting colors and variation in the fern lace stitches set off the eye-catching lace border beautifully. This pattern is equally lovely with single color or tonal yarn. Knitted in the round, the scarf can be easily adjusted in circumference and width to suit your needs.
