If you dare...

You won't catch me in a bikini this summer, (I've had a kid and I'm not an actress - do the math) but for those of you who crochet and have yet to find a pattern with suitable coverage -- I have made this for you. The ruffle bikini, yes it is entirely crocheted (the ruffles are made with a specialty type yarn), the rest is made from designer sport Red Heart. The whole cost to make this (without even breaking into your Joann coupons or sales) under $20. Check it out by clicking on the pic.

Pattern of the Week

I just got my Berroco Knitbits email today and found this pleasant surprise. This is the first email in a while that has included a pattern for crochet, and the fact that is cute is an even better plus. This would be a great spring to summer cardi, and it doesn't look boxy in the least. Give it a try by clicking on the picture to go to the free pattern. Happy hooking!! Also, while you are there, sign up for the newsletter and you can also get things like this in your email.

New Listing

I love damask, so I thought I would try to somehow crochet it. This is the result -- a new filet damask pattern that is available in my shop now. Click on the picture to go check it out.

Pattern of the Week

I thought this was a cute idea. This is not only an amigurumi cat (and a sassy one at that), but it is also a hook holder for when you are in between projects. It is available for download now at CrochetKitten, she has some other very cute free projects available now also. Click on the picture to be taken to the free pattern.
