Day 20: Feeling Stitchy (+ A new pattern!)
Today’s stop on the Little Crochet blog tour is with Flor of Feeling Stitchy, which you might know as an embroidery blog. That’s because it is, but I’m always trying to reel in the every-crafters to give the hook a try. That’s why my working title at Yarnivore is Crochet Evangelist. But really, the reason why I wanted to include Feeling Stitchy is that Flor happens to be a good friend and neighbor of mine. We met several years ago just a couple of weeks before I left New York, and at the time I lamented not having met her sooner–it would have been nice to have a friend like her in that big city. But its a small world, after all. Because when we both eventually moved back to San Antonio, we discovered that we live a block away from each other. Which, I have to say, is pretty awesome.
Flor also happens to be the model for some of my new + re-released crochet patterns. She is such a good sport! Above is the Raindrops Scarf, a satisfyingly quick scarf with raindrop shaped lace. It should be up on KnitPicks any day now, and is also available on Ravelry. (Note- The Knit Picks price will be slightly less, because I don’t have to pay fees on it–buy it wherever you prefer). I also re-crocheted Stellar in their Chroma yarn, for another variation. So far I am really impressed with Chroma–I love, love, love long color repeats, especially for crochet. And hooray for my model–isn’t she lovely?
Anyway, that’s the news for today. Just a few more days of blog touring, and then I’ll be back to share my crocheted (for me!) Peanut Butter Cardigan with you. I’m going to show off my blocking methods + hopefully have a finished piece quite soon.
