Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

My Next Project...

Remember that blanket that I made for my five year old daughter? Well, now my seven year old wants me to make one for her too! We chose the colors over the weekend.

I've decided that I am going to try something new for me. Plaid!
Years ago (before I had internet), I went to the library and found a book with interesting crochet techniques. I ran off a few copies and tucked them away. Well, I recently found them. As I looked through the 7 or 8 pages, I always skipped over the instructions for the plaid and put them aside.
Well, last night, I was looking through my folder of patterns for inspiration for this blanket. My original plan was to do a zig-zag, but I wasn't 100% excited about it. I wanted something different. Nothing jumped out at me.... then I saw the plaid. I dismissed it at first, then I took a better look at the pages. They were copied in black and white, so maybe that's why it wasn't too exciting at first. After reading the technique and using my imagination with the colors that should be in the pictures, I knew that was the blanket I want to make.
... Now let's hope I don't screw it up!

My plan is to use the Dark Orchid and the Claret as the main colors, then  the Light Sage and the Coffee as accent colors.
I am starting it tonight... wish me luck!
