To Lace or Not to Lace… That is the Crochet Question!
A crochet tale ......Once upon a time I visited a terrific yarn store and filled my basket with many skeins and cones of yarn. I didn't have a specific project in mind for any of them, but my senses were stimulated by the colors, textures and silky, soft feel of these fibers. One particular blueish cone of bamboo fingering, caught my eye and tickled my fancy. After giving it some thought I decided to make a shawl. I selected a hook and began to try stitch combinations. I quickly settled … [Read more...] about To Lace or Not to Lace… That is the Crochet Question!
Missy Claus Crochet Skirt Set
I'm releasing two new crochet patterns today. Isn't my model gorgeous? The first is a Missy Claus Skirt & Headband.

The Sea Breeze Shrug, a year in the making!
My daughter has been patiently (not) waiting for this little shrug, which she asked for more than a year ago! All she wanted was a little shrug to wear over sleeveless dresses and tops for a little extra coverage and warmth. Not much to ask for, but I kept putting her off due to other designs or projects in progress... can you relate? Her persistence inspired the Sea Breeze Shrug. She chose the colors and sequence and I applied the design. We liked it so much we decided to try it in solid … [Read more...] about The Sea Breeze Shrug, a year in the making!
