Crocheting for Spring

Good morning, crocheters. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. I sure did. Today I'm finishing up my Christmas decorating, and straightening up after company. As soon as I'm finished I will jump right into my spring line again. I'm excited about the two crochet dresses I've finished so far. Perfect for Easter! One comes with a wonderful little shrug to keep her warm. I also have a little jean jacket in the works, as well as a line of coats. Can't wait to share them with you. I've been receiving pics from customers with their darling little ones wearing my designs that they have crocheted. As soon as I get a few more, I will put up the customer gallery. That will be alot of fun. Have a great crochet day! signature-pd

Ravelry

Trim the TreeGood morning, crocheters! Today I am on a mission to get my patterns on Ravelry. I consider myself a fairly savy web user, but for some reason I find setting up on Ravelry really hard. Maybe it's just me.  I absolutely love this site, and feel it is an important component of growing my crochet design business. So, today is the day I figure it out. Wish me luck! Soon you will be able to find my crochet patterns on Ravelry! Once I get this accomplished I am going to curl up by the fire and continue working on my spring crochet line. Can't wait to share it with you. signature-pd

New Crochet Yarn

Good morning crocheters. I've  just received a new yarn from Cascade Yarns. It is their new Ultra Pima. I'm excited to play with it. The sheen is unbelievable. Today I'll make several swatches in different crochet stitches. That's always the first thing I do with a new yarn. I want to see how it plays out, how it highlights different stiches and techniques. From there I get inspiration for how and where I want to use it in my designs. The amazing complex colors will be wonderful in my spring crochet line. So, off to crochet I go. Have a great day. Now go crochet! signature-pd

Natural Fiber Yarns

Hello, fellow crocheters. As you know I love working with natural fiber yarns. My Brite Babies crochet pattern line was inspired by the wonderful Pima Cotton and Tencel yarn f rom Cascade Yarns. I will continue to add patterns in the Brite Babies line. I've recently discovered a fabulous 100% bamboo yarn made by women in South Africa under a job creation program that has offered opportunity to an econimically depressed rural region. I love the soft hand on this yarn, and the wonderful colors. I am starting on my Spring  / Easter designs, and am loving working with the new yarn as well. Let me know what crochet projects you're currently working on and what yarns you love to use. I will be looking forward to hearing from you. signature-pd
