Live Life – Love Life Crochet Pattern Release

This pattern has been under way for quite some time. It could be argued that I have been procrastinating over it, although that wouldn’t be me to do that at all…

I actually really enjoy working this pattern and have another sample ready for photography once the light and the weather is more co-operative. You can read more about the making of the pattern and the bag here!

Tapestry Crochet

Defiant Summer Crochet

IMG_3490smallThe Irish summer heat seeped out around July first, we’re back to rain and low temperatures as per usual but who says we can’t use summer colours anyway? I am at the moment.

The Summer Candy Swirl Beanie was completed in fun summer colours. It’s just a little sample that will only fit a child’s head, the spiral on it was fun to make. I enjoy to crochet spirals.

Right now I’m preparing the Tapestry Crochet Class for next Saturday at The Yarn Room and I’m having great fun. I made the first couple of samples a while back, one is the Little Girl’s Pouch which is also very summery in colour indeed.

Colourful Tapestry Crochet Samples In Cotton

I have a little cat crochet in a Egyptian style, it’s fun but it will need much more work. I’ll enjoy the creative journey that will be.

The woollen Tapestry Crochet sample is my all time favourite so far. I adore the coarse Cushendale DK yarn that has such wonderful stitch definition and durability. And then there is the colours that are simply to die for. The saturation is just right, the hues and tones are done to perfection and the fleck is just fantastic!

I will work on a couple more samples and see if I can think up some fun and inspiring designs to work with. You see, to me the best journey of all is the creative process and that is the summer journey I intend for this weekend. Tapestry Crochet, here I come!
