I love purple – sneak preview of new design

It seems like a long time ago when Clair was released. I have done lots of bad stuff (mouwahaha) with this latest project of mine – frogging many times and taking lots of breaks.
Does the stitch pattern look familiar to you? It is based on the lacy shells of Ada that I really like. I definitely love the purple with the lace.  I hope you like it too.  (Please visit again for more details when the pattern is released in this fall.)

Gina & Stitch, not Lilo & Stitch

Thanks to Tracy for sending me the photos of this beautiful Gina cardigan she made.  It is size 3Y, and being showcased as a shop model for “Stitch”, a lovely store located in the East Village, Des Moines, Iowa.  Don’t you love the color and the whole ensemble?  It’s so fresh and beautiful!  I think Lilo & Stitch will agree.

I love continuous motifs – sneak preview of new design

Ever since I had weaved in hundred of ends for 2 motif projects, I was rather discouraged to start another project of this type.  However, after coming across this inspiring Japanese book “Continuous Crochet Motif” by Nihon Vogue Sha, I know I would design a piece with continuous floral motifs.

And this is it!  The entire shrug is continuous and seamless! I have absolutely conquered my motif-phobia.
