It’s National Crochet Month,,, Week 2…  I am so excited to be working on my next pattern to be published here on my site and on ravelry.com  later this week!

I live in a very small town and crochet supplies are hard to come by… I needed some new yarn to work on this project and my new pattern.  This go around I was able to find what I needed for a reasonable price at amazon.com  and it arrived at my home yesterday…  It was so exciting to open a box and see new skeins of yarn to add to my stash!

Some great yarn to start a new project…

I started my project right away… So excited to write a new pattern and make my newest item to deliver later this week to the shop.  This month our town will re-start the once a month Art Walk.  The theme at Alpine Originals (the shop where I sell) is Children… So they will be highlighting all the artists (including me) and all the children’s items they make… I am busy making extra kids items just for this event!  Hint…. The next FREE PATTERN is in this category…

March is National Crochet Month…  There will be so much going on for people who love crochet like I do.  All month-long I  will be posting my original patterns for you to enjoy, talking about the history of crochet, sharing sites and links that I think are really great and spreading the word about this wonderful hobby!

.

To kick off this celebration, I am posting my first FREE PATTERN!  This is an adorable mug cozy I designed recently.  I love my coffee, but not luke warm!  Not only do these cozy’s help keep a fresh, yummy cup of coffee warm, but they also act as a coaster… Love it!

Another weekend and time to start another project!  My Sunburst Granny Square Blanket I started last a couple of weeks ago is coming along great!  But, that one is for me and it was time to make something for Alpine Original’s, the little store where I sell my crochet…

.

So… I set aside the Sunburst Granny just for a few days and started this adorable Granny Square Baby Blanket.  I have a large stash of great yarn and was able to pick a beautiful combination.   This is the pattern my Grandmother Beatrice Ryan taught me at 10 years old… It has regained its popularity recently and I am blessed to have been taught this skill that will hopefully inspire many others to learn and love the Art of Crochet !
