I've got another color-filled design on my hook right now. Surprised? No? Well, me either. Ever since receiving this delightful palette of Scheepjes *Cotton 8, I had to get my "hooks" into it!

Catona "Paper" Chain

While brainstorming ideas to motivate my kiddos to do their summer reading, I came up with a little crochet pattern to share with you. I wanted something visual and tangible that allows them to "count" books or minutes read--something that would show progress towards their goal. Thus, the idea of a paper chain--the kind I made in grade school as a child seemed just the ticket! But, rather than running for the paper, I ran for the yarn (of course). A crocheted chain!

Honoring Wink

I've been as busy as ever behind the scenes, crocheting away on some fun little projects. But while doing so, my mind has been heavy with thoughts about the loss of a dear friend to her battle with depression a year ago.

I discovered Wink (Marinke Slump) of the popular blog A Creative Being several years before we crossed paths. After getting acquainted online and having her say the nicest things about my work, she encouraged me to join Design Wars Challenge. She believed in me when I was doubting myself, but I applied. From that experience, I have made some beautiful designs, met many amazing folks and had opportunities for growing my craft and my business in ways I couldn't have imagined. Here are a few designs that came from that fun experience...

When I sat down with my huge stash of Scheepjes *Colour Crafter to begin the motif that was in my head, I really wanted to make something with some depth and dimension. I wanted it to be a good sized square (this one is 5.5"). I wanted something that "moved". And something magical happened! This little motif came together in just over an hour! That NEVER happens in my design world! Magic, I tell ya!

How to Crochet an I-Cord

Maybe you have the same problem I do with eyeglasses? You take them off, set them down, and can't find them when you need them. I decided to solve this little dilemma by crocheting an I-cord Eyeglass Holder. And I'm thrilled to share a little tutorial with you in case you might want to make one, too. Wanna see? (Haha. Pun intended.)
