I have lots (and lots) to tell you this week.
Thing 1 (Yes, I'm a Seuess fan!)
I'll start with my latest pattern, which is small and easy. It's a Lazy Waves Dishcloth made from Drops Paris Cotton. I made it in the same colours as the rest of my dishcloths (listed below), because I just love the way the colours work together.
Some of you might remember me working on a huge fabric yarn project at the start of the year.
I am not at liberty to tell you (yet) what this project actually was, but what I can tell you is that it is one of 25 projects featured in my new book, Big Hook Rag Crochet, which is available for pre-order on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. The patterns in the book have been specifically designed for fabric yarn and range from one-of-a-kind wearables to chunky and cheerful homeware. The book features more than 10 brilliant designers.
Voting has now opened for the third quarter of the 2015 Flamies. I have been nominated in 4 categories and would love for you to pop over and cast your votes.
Some of my other favourite nominated designers include:
If you are not familiar with these designers, I suggest you make yourself a cup of coffee and check them out!
Things 4 and 5
The last two things I want to share with you are both CAL's. The first is the 'I Want That Bag' CAL by Kimberly Slifer from Just a Girl and a Hook. It will be starting in October, so you will have plenty of time to gather your supplies!
The second CAL is the Little Oombawkas Mini Meow CAL, which has just started. The CAL is for a fluffly toy cat that looks quite lifelike!
Please remember to have a look at the Devon Sun Yarns Yarn Retreat in November if you haven't already done so. I will be joining Daisy for the retreat and I cannot wait! She is offering an Early Bird discount (with coupon code 'EARLYBIRD'), so make sure to add the code before you check out.
You can read more about the Yarn Retreat HERE.
Have a brilliant CRAFTY week!
