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!

The pattern is available in UK as well as US terminology and it is also available in Danish.

I love the material of the bag and not least the sentiment of the writing on the bag. I hope you will enjoy this bag as much as I do too!

For The Love Of Colour

I am Scandinavian, I adore Fair Isle knitting, I love colour and crochet and all these elements come together for me in Tapestry Crochet. I am currently preparing a workshop in Tapestry Crochet and had this notion that the yarn from Cushendale Woollen Mills would be ideal for this purpose. The yarn is hard wearing and the colours are simply second to none.

Tapestry Diamond Bag © 2010 Irene Lundgaard

Yesterday I finished this little handy bag covered in diamond shapes. I just need to find the right button. The design I made reminds me of a large embroidered cushion my grandmother had. Funny how my granny seems to crop up all the time.

My next item will be in pure cotton which can give a good hard-wearing fabric too. I’m thinking summer, I’m thinking sunshine, I’m thinking handy little essentials bag.

The Tapestry workshop will be in The Yarn Room in Ashford, Co Wicklow this coming Sunday June 13th from 10.30 to 4.00, the price is €65 for the day where you will make your own bag. Materials and handouts are included in the price. For booking contact stephanie@theyarnroom.com.
