Start your Christmas crochet projects now. Christmas may seem like a long way away, but as we see every year it sneeks up on us. Patty Davis Designs has two adorable, easy to crochet, patterns for boys and girls. The “Peek-a-Boo” crochet sweater pattern can be for both girls or boys. If you want to make it more feminine just change the color and put a bow on the snowman. Her adorable Christmas Dress is fun to crochet and truly a work of art. These adorable Crochet garments will be passed down for generations.
Life Is Short. Crochet More!
Good afternoon crocheters. I’ve been very busy since my first TNNA conference. I met wonderful people and made some great industry contacts. It was fun talking with crochet addicts and knitters alike. I’m excited that my crochet patterns were extremely well received. There was particularly high interest in my new bomber jacket crochet pattern! I had so much fun designing and crocheting Baby Bomber. Check it out on my site.
Have a Great Crochet Day!
Wow, can you believe there are only two days left until Christmas? I hope those of you that crocheting my designs as gifts are finished. If not, you need to crochet like crazy. For those of you that purchased my Christmas crochet patterns, please e-mail me pictures of your little ones wearing the finished crochet garments. I would love to put them up on the customer gallery.
It’s now time to start working on those sweet spring crochet projects. I will be adding patterns of my spring collection soon.
Have a wonderful crochet day.
Good morning, Crocheters. I am really excited that I received an e-mail from the editor of Crochet! Magazine, asking me to submit designs for publication in the magazine. No guarantee that I’ll be chosen, but how fun would that be to be published in Crochet! Magazine. I am crazy busy designing and crocheting for my spring crochet line to show at the TNNA, but I’m going to jump into hyper gear to get something sent to Crochet! Magazine. Wish me luck!
Life is Short. Crochet More!
Good afternoon, crocheters. Wow, what a busy season. I’m not ony getting ready for Christmas, but also designing and crocheting my spring line to take to The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) trade show in January. I’m really looking forward to sharing the new designs with all of you. I would love to hear what crochet projects you’ve been working on. Send me a message. Also a reminder, for my wonderful customers, to e-mail me pictures of your children in my patterns that you’ve crocheted. I’m planning on putting up my customer crochet gallery as soon as I get a few more pictures.
Have a Wonderful Crochet Day
Good morning, crocheters. I have learned the hard way on this tip: when you are changing colors often, on a crochet project, leave an extra long tail on the changing color. This gives you yarn to use when crocheting a finished edge and you won’t have to work in as many tails when you are finished.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday season. I also trust that you are crocheting some wonderful holiday gifts for loved ones. Everyone loves a beautiful handmade gift! Just remember, the days are ticking away, so crochet, crochet, crochet!
Good morning, crocheters! Just a quick crochet tip, that many of you may already be using. When working with multiple colors, at a time, I put each individual yarn ball in a zip lock bag to keep from tangling. When a color is not in use, zip the bag , as far as you can, with crochet yarn coming out. Unzip the color you are working with and the yarn flows nicely.
As you know my patterns include a lot of color and I use many colors in each crochet pattern. This technique is very helpful in helping me keep the yarn straight.
Life is Short….Crochet More!
Good morning, crocheters. I am excited to say that I received my first crochet pattern order from Ireland today! The order was for my Peek-a-Boo Snowman Sweater. Cool!
This morning I’ve finished putting my designs on Ravelry. What a wonderful crochet community this is. Can’t wait to spend more time on the Ravelry site, getting to know fellow crochet pattern designers.
Today I will be spending most of my day preparing for Thanksgiving company. I love this time of year. There is nothing better, in my mind, than spending quality time with family….and eating lots of yummy food!
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Good morning, Thanksgiving is almost here and my daughter Erin is coming home today! I am so excited I can’t even express my joy. I won’t have much time for crochet today because I have to get her room perfect. I still have alot of work to do on my spring crochet patterns, so I’m sure I’ll be crocheting while were watching the kickoff of Christmas movies.
I do, of course, have another crochet tip for you today. When crocheting a circular border on a sweater, dress, or other project, reverse direction every other row and this will keep the border trim from rolling. It is an easy crochet technique and works beautifully.
Hope you and your family are getting together for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Have a Great Crochet Day!
