Waving Goodbye To October

Hello everyone!

This post is all about waving Goodbye to October, and looking ahead to November and making a pledge (to myself) that I am going to get the Stormtrooper blanket finished this next month.

20181031_102902

I first began this back in April of LAST year!! (I know. I know.) We owned a pub, and life got very busy, then it got packed away and fogotten about. And when we moved I found it again.

And ever since September, I have been making LOTS and LOTS of these little squares, all in Black and White and Graphite and Grey.

Every now and again, I have to take a break and work with COLOUR again.  Grins.

Hence the very productive October I have had.

As you can see, I have managed to fit quite a lot of colour in too! Smiles.

The bottom right is the dreaded blanket.

The centre square is a little something to add a smile.

The middle left is my all time favourite make from the whole year, and you can find the blog post (and pattern links) here.

The hook roll (top middle) is the design I created for The Monthly Variety Box.  I’m the designer for that one in both March and November next year too, and I feel so excited to be a part of it.

Hayley is thinking of starting a monthly Mini box too, so it’s always worth clicking the link, and popping over to take a look.

Bottom middle is the #butterflypocket which I designed FREE for the charity #uponbutterflywings.  You can find out more (and grab the pattern download links) here.

I’m looking forward to November, I have the #beadedmittens pattern to finalise (it’s with my testers now) as well as the fingerless gloves.

I will be releasing the #prettypastelshookroll pattern for general sale this weekend.

And I WILL FINISH THAT STORMTROOPER BLANKET (Just watch this space!)  Smiles.

Wishing you all a very happy Halloween.

FREE Crochet Pattern Alert!!

Hello everyone, and a very happy August Bank Holiday to you if you’re in the UK.  As usual it is wet and horrid outside, fairly typical of an English Bank Holiday really.

But not to worry because I’m here with something to make you smile!

I have just released my latest design, and for ONE WEEK ONLY this patter is COMPLETELY FREE OVER ON LOVECROCHET.COM!! So run, run, as fast as you can and grab this while it’s FREE! Smiles.

The to is called Skimming Stones Tee and is a v neck design front and back.

It also features a cold should design which I just love!

To make this, I have used Stylecraft Linen Drape from Love Crochet.com and it is simply perfect for this top.

The drape and fit of this design flatters all figures, and ALL of my lovely pattern testers loved it.

Doesn’t it just look so lovely on each of them?!

You can make the arms as loose and drapey as you like, or have them more fitted (as in the picture on the far right.)

I can honestly say that this Stylecraft Linen Drape cotton is by far the best I have created with so far, it’s an absolute dream.  It gives amazing stitch definition, drapes beautifully, and comes in some very beautiful colours too.

So, if you visit my Love Crochet pattern store, you can grab this for FREE for ONE WEEK ONLY!

After that it becomes a paid pattern.

You can also find the pattern on Ravelry and on Etsy.

I’m offering this free because I hit my target of 400 followers on Instagram by Sunday. In fact that target was smashed! Smiles.

If you follow me on Love Crochet or Ravelry I will follow you back.

You can also follow me on Instagram and in my Facebook Group here.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs and Happy Crafting Everyone!
