what a good idea…

 

 

I have been wracking my brain for ages trying to come up with something different  – a smallish item that is practical but still stylish & good to look at – I came up with this little Carry Safe – Freeform Crochet camera/phone case – it’s lined with a strong, dark grey commercial felt to withstand the hard knocks – the brain-wracking has been worth the effort, even if I do say so myself

More hyperbolics – just couldn’t help it

OK…. so call me obsessive but I just couldn’t help myself – I just had to make some more coral for the Sydney reef – this time I used ‘Fiesta Yarn’ by Arbee, a polypropylene ribbon & just love the results – However, the idea to use the ‘Fiesta Yarn’  was not mine – all credit for this great fun idea must go to Meg-an-jack – please check out her fabulous fibre art

Seeing her wonderful coral pieces reminded me that I had a whole bag of the stuff somewhere in my stash & so…. these new pieces will also be added to my contribution to the Sydney Hyperbolic Coral Reef Project

Bleu` Flush & Rustic finally see the light of day..

Bleu` Flush & Rustic are 2 projects that I have been working of a while but they are finally done & dusted. Although I was unsure how it would work, I decided to incorporate all 16 motifs into each piece & I’m delighted with the results

3 step Summer Shrug

This little number is the easiest garment you’ll ever make – it is worked by size not number of stitches & as with all my recent patterns I like to think that even the most basic beginner will be able to have a go & make something other than a crochet square

The pattern is in both UK & US terminology with stitch drawings & diagrams & because it’s such an easy pattern to read, it will help the beginner gain confidence reading & understanding other patterns – for the more experienced it’s a quick garment to knock over in a few hours
3 Step Summer Shrug  is for sale on Ravelry

I just know you’ll love this pattern & use it over & over again… Renate
