Recent Crochet Projects
With all of this book and moving hoopla, I think I forgot to mention my most recent crochet projects in Crochet Today (Sept/Oct 2009 Issue). First up is the Raspberry Beret (yes, I’ve been singing that Prince song every time I see a new one on Ravelry). I’m thrilled that it’s been in the top crochet projects (ie: most made) for a few weeks on Ravelry now and it’s so fun to see all of the versions. Click here to go straight to the Ravelry project page (you must be a member to view–if you aren’t one, and you knit or crochet, what are you waiting for??) It’s hard to tell from this photo, but the top/back of the beret is a lacy flower.
And another really fun pattern, which is just in time for Halloween, is a set of cute little moustaches. You can whip these up in 15 minutes, I think, and a dab of spirit glue or eyelash glue will set them in place for your masquerade. These are a great scrap project as they only take a teensy bit of yarn to make, and there is an adorable bunch of kids modelling them on Ravelry–check them out. There are two different ’staches and an eye mask, too.
Very fun, and inspired by the glow in the dark beard/brows set I made last Halloween. I keep meaning to make that available as a pattern, but haven’t had the time yet. And speaking of glow in the dark yarn, someone used some to make my Filigree Bowl pattern (also from Crochet Today, available free here) –if you’re on Ravelry, click here to see. Awesome!
