Ready to revive!

5 May

Well I guess it’s time to revive this blog…we all start with the best intentions that sometimes go by the wayside when life gets involved :)…….I lost my computer so didn’t have access to the internet for a little while and once I did my blog ‘mojo’ was missing…lol

During this time off though I have been busy writing an E-book….hopefully to be released shortly, I only have 3 patterns left to write and one cuff to finish crocheting. I have uploaded a couple of single cuff patterns to my Ravelry store …Here are some photos…

I’ve also opened a new Etsy shop now that they are offering instant downloads for pdf files……I have sold a couple of patterns so we will see how it goes.

Along with all of this I now have a facebook page for my designs! I would love it if you would pop over and ‘like’ me……I think that’s what you do :)……if you want to leave a comment on the page I will put you in a draw for a free pattern of your choice from one of my shops…or I can even email it to you if you want.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I finished one of my new hats over the weekend……This one here, it is modelled by my uncooperative 2 year old who refused to look at the camera! This is the hat.


And this is the evil…’I can’t believe you’re making me do this’ look he was giving me most of the time 🙂

Hopefully I’ll get the pattern written today so that I can put it up on Ravelry for testing tomorrow, along with this one…..

Although I’m making a worsted weight version of this one so I might wait until that is done and put both of them out for testing at once, we’ll see.

Busy, busy, busy!

20 Nov

Well I was a really busy girl yesterday, aside from writing 3 patterns and finishing 3 articles that I needed to post off to a yarn company over here that I do some work for I managed to get a start on a couple of hats that simply wouldn’t stop bugging me!


As you can see one is finished (although the photos aren’t much good) and the other two are well under way. I love making hats, they are such versatile objects, nice and quick while they can show off all sorts of stitch patterns :). Hopefully I’ll have these finished within a week and I can get them out for testing!

Have a great day.

Review: Crochetvolution Winter 2012

7 Nov

I saw a couple of really lovely reviews of Crochetvolution yesterday and meant to write about them then…but wadda ya know I already missed a day! I can’t believe it, it was grocery shopping day yesterday and I completely forgot that I even had a blog…lol

Anyway Quaternity Design Studios had a great review (of course I’m biased as my pattern was mentioned) Review: Crochetvolution Winter 2012. and so did Anastacia Knits they both have lovely blogs and interesting content so go and check them out.

Also check out Crochetvolution this mag has been going about a year now and gets better all the time, so bookmark it and watch for new editions. Melissa from Innerchildcrochet has done a fantastic job of creating and running a new magazine while juggling a young family as well 🙂 It’s full of free patterns like the ones below and interesting articles.

Snowflake Ice Scraper Mitt by Darleen Hopkin

I love this idea by Darleen Hopkins, no good for us here in Brisbane of course but I have to think it would make a great teachers gift for those of you in colder climates.

There are also several other designs so check it out! and if you haven’t seen this mag before take a look at the archives too…that should keep you busy for the rest of the day 🙂
