Blog Tour: Go Crochet Afghan Design Workbook

If you’re someone who pieces together their crochet time from 15 minutes in the carpool line, 10 minutes at the grocery store, and a couple of hours at your kids’ sporting event, you’re probably a lover of motifs. I like making motifs for lots of reasons:
-easily memorizeable patterns (once you’ve made a few)
-portable, and you [...]

The Best Part: Cool Stuff You Made

The biggest thrill that I get as a crochet designer/ author is seeing people’s projects when they take the time to make one of my patterns. I love to see what y’all come up with, it’s so inspiring! When  you add your projects to ravelry, I can see the ones made with my patterns in [...]

Tegue’s Sweater

Despite having lots of projects I should be working on–you know, the kind with deadlines?–I was recently inspired to start a sweater for my nephew. If you read the dedication in Little Crochet, you’ll see that the book is dedicated him, he is just an amazingly sweet little guy. I’m going to take next week [...]

Green Bean Cardigan!

So, I actually took myself out for a photo shoot…with, myself, because we have been busy around these parts. I got some decent shots of my finished Peanut Butter Cardigan (which I’m calling Green Bean Cardigan) just to give you an idea of the fit on an average-ish body. I made the Medium, size 40″ [...]

Upcoming Classes

This weekend at Yarnivore, I’m starting a 2-lesson class on the Swing Set Cardigan from Little Crochet. We’ll learn to make increases, read patterns, and mainly I’ll just get you [...]

What I’ve Been Working On

In this midst of all my  blog touring, book promoting and class debuting action, I’ve been happily stitching away on a Peanut Butter Cardigan of my very own (here’s my project page). I’m teaching it as a class at Yarnivore, which has also provided an opportunity to work through some of the other sizes. I’m [...]

When Susan asked me to contribute to the book, [...]
