Hello All, and welcome to Episode 11!
I am still new-nephew-less. This baby is a big tease and keeps making us think he’s going to arrive, but then doesn’t. I’m going to have to talk to him someday about the boy who cried wolf. In the meantime, I bought him The Inappropriate Baby Book.
I don’t have any FOs this week, but here are my WIPs:
Spring Training Cap by Linda Permann. This pattern was printed in the March/April 2012 edition of Crochet Today! magazine. From what I understand, the magazine is no longer in print so I apologize but you may not easily find this pattern. I’m using Rowan Pure Wool Worsted in Soft Cream (102) and Rich Red (124). Here’s my project. Oh, hey, guess what?? IT’S CROCHET! I have put off learning to crochet for too long and I am so excited to finally be learning the skill. Here are some links to videos I’ve used along the way:
- This video showed me the basic things I needed to know to get started.
- I used the following video to learn the Adjustable Ring method. Crochet Stitch Guide: Adjustable Ring (Magic Loop)
- How To Join With A Slip Stitch To Form a Ring
- How To Double Crochet
This week I tried Icewine Tea by Canada True. I bought it at Winners, but here are a couple of links to online sites that sell it (and other products). I have not used these sites so I can’t say anything about their shipping charges/times and so on.
That’s it for this week. Be sure to check out the Ravelry group, and sign up for a chance to win cool stuff!
Until next week, Happy Crafting!
