if you follow me on ravelry, twitter or facebook, this may not be news to you, but i haven’t yet announced it here that i have self-published my first two crochet patterns, Coral Cloche and Wingfeathers Shawl. this is something i’ve been wanting to do for a lo-o-ong time, and it feels so good to finally be doing it! a third pattern is well under way, and many more are to come. the world needs more *good crochet* patterns, don’t you agree?
i owe much credit, for supplying me with her splendidly inspiring yarns to play with (and for giving me a nudge or two) to the queen of color, jill draper. the cloche is designed for her Hudson (worsted), and the shawl for her Splendor (sock). the kettle-dyed grey sample above is Splendor in Mourning Dove, and the multicolored one in the top photo is Kureyon Sock.
