Changing Colors

Take a cue from fall’s changing foliage and try one of these designs for the season. From cowls crocheted with brilliant variegated colorways to scarves and shawls that are the perfect accent to your autumn wardrobe, these patterns are must haves.10a4

Rustic Retreat

Adore cuddling up with a latte? Or perhaps transitioning your home from bright summer tones to more neutral, autumnal tones? These five patterns range from slipper socks to a bobble pillow, and all remind us that fall is a time to relax, unwind and enjoy the crisp morning air.8a4.jpg

Mum’s the Word

Make a grand entrance into fall with new designs inspired by autumn’s favorite flowers! A stunning afghan set will warm your sitting room while a trendy sweater will keep you toasty during a nature hike. Whether you crochet one of these patterns for yourself or for a friend, you won’t want to keep these new designs quiet!Suncrisp-Appleghan-Logos-01a.jpg

Fall into Winter

Love walks on cool, crisp days? Good, because winter is on the way and the days are going to get chillier! The solution to the cold is new designs to add to your closet. With several hats to choose from and a cardigan you’ll want to wear every day, these patterns will carry you well into the winter season.7a4

Harvest Home Pillows – Student Projects

Look at some of the completed pillows from the crochet class I taught recently at my local yarn store. Don’t they look great? The students did a great job.  It was a lot of fun to see how different they could look just by changing up the yarn and buttons!  I really enjoy seeing the feeling of accomplishment that a person has when they complete a project.  A couple students went on to make more than one pillow. I’m so proud!

FYI – You can find my pattern for this pillow in the Winter 2012 issue of Crochet! Magazine.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I haven’t had much to say lately because I’ve just been so busy.  But meet Jasper, the newest member of our family!  We are fostering him while his mom receives some long-term medical care. Jasper makes the 6th, yes 6th, member of our feline family.  And it has been interesting. It’s only been a couple of weeks, progress has been made, but there’s more to go. Image

In crochet news, I just finished teaching a crochet class at my LYS for my Harvest Home Pillow, which you can find in the Winter 2012 Issue of Crochet! Magazine.  I hope to share some photos of my students’ finished projects soon.

In a few weeks, I’ll be teaching a class for my popular design to date – the Bellflower Infinity Scarf.

ImageI have several projects in works, including some for Love of Crochet and Willow Yarns.

Others are completed and coming out later this year and early 2014 in Love of Crochet, Herrschners, Crochet 1-2-3, and Crochet World. 

Busy, Busy, Busy!
