Two New Designs

Tuesday, March 19, 2013
My long-awaited Gwyneth Cable Cowl pattern is now available in my Ravelry store:

I love the Gwyneth Cable and have used it on a miser purse design as well which appeared in Inside Crochet, the British publication: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/miser-purse






Daughter, Bethany, is my best model!

A month ago, I finished a new creation in which I brought the outside in. I was keeping it a secret because I had planned to enter it in the 2013 CGOA Design Contest. However, I've just learned that the contest will be held in Reno and I won't be attending. The design is too fragile to mail, so I'm revealing it here!

I've been working on some projects with a lot of detail and a lot of steps, so I haven't brought anything to completion this week. As is usually my style, I will probably see several to completion all in one week sometime soon!

We are off to babysit the grandkids tomorrow and then rushing back for Crochet Buffet hosted by my CGOA chapter: http://www.nicrochet.com/ I am really looking forward to it.

Also, if you haven't been following the Blog Tour of Crochet Country over at Crochetville, there is still time to check it out. It is a wonderful way to treat yourself to a daily blog all during National Crochet Month:

National Crochet Month: A Fibery Celebration!

Crocheters across the nation have gotten creative in finding ways to celebrate their beloved craft during the month of March for National Crochet Month. Started originally as National Crochet Week by the Crochet Guild of America in 1997,  it has grown and grown and there is so much to celebrate that CGOA changed it to a monthlong event a few years later. Fibery people, CGOA members, and companies large and small are on the bandwagon now to draw attention to all we love about crochet!


What did you do to celebrate? I'm sure we educated many, many of the unenlightened during March ~ but calm down, Ryan...no physical violence allowed; just threaten with a crochet hook!

The Northern IL Chapter of CGOA has wrapped up its celebration  with our annual Crochet Buffet. It is always a feast for the senses and a smorgasbord for the eyes! Thank you to all the chapter members who displayed their beautiful crochet! We also filled the library showcase where we meet with crochet during the month.
