First Light Rug

When I started designing, I set goals of someday having a pattern featured in Interview Crochet.  And I am happy to say I have accomplished that goal.   I am pleased to introduce First Light Rug.

It is made with Universal Yarns Yashi, a Raffia yarn. 

I really enjoyed working with this natural fiber yarn. 

It is wonderfully easy to work with as well as pleasing to my hands.

Crochet Fashion at CGOA

 This year I attended my first CGOA conference and I had a fantastic time. It was a great experience that I highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing it. You meet so many people, learn a variety of techniques and get inspired to create more. And the best place to show your crochet wear is a CGOA conference.  It's wonderful because you hear people saying is "That's pretty", "I like that", or "Is that your design?" as you're saying the same thing.

 On my first day I wore:
The Wetherell Pullover by Robyn Chachula, Crochet! Autumn 2016.  For this pattern, I used a Linen/Tencel yarn from Newton's Yarn Country.

My second outfit was the Bruges Lace Tunic by Ellen Gormely,
which was made with Tahki Cotton Classic.

was made with Clea Cotton thread. This outfit received the most attention.  
The best part was meeting Myra Wood and sharing it with her.

The last event of the conference was the banquet and 
with a simple black dress I wore my Elvia Shawl.
it's a design of mine and you can find the pattern in the August issue of Crochet World.

Farm Market Totes and Garden

We Our farmers market will start up this weekend. So to prepare I have design a set of market totes.  This new pattern uses four balls of worsted weight cotton yarn.  
The bags are two different size one is 16 inches in diameter and the other is 13 inches in diameter.

 This pattern will use up all four balls so be sure to check your gauge.  It is also a great design for using scrap yarn from leftover projects.  You can find the pattern here.

Also this year we started our first garden...
We are growing zucchini, celery, brussel sprouts, brocoli, strawberries, tomatoes, basil, and peppers

Happy Birthday to our dog Toni (aka Puppyzilla) she is one year old.
