So how is your week going so far? Things are good around here, quite a lot of exciting things bubbling along, lots of crochet goodness, so I am a happy girl!
A while ago I showed you a bit of sneaky crochet I was making, well, I think I can show you what I was up to now. I was making this crocheted bag, for a special blogger supplement in the magazine
Simply Crochet. You can find the pattern in the current issue, along with some other lovely crochet bloggers, so I think I am safe chatting about it. I haven't seen it in the flesh yet as we get this mag about 6 weeks later here. Quite exciting for me, I can tell you! I've never been asked to do anything for a mag before, I am actually pretty chuffed to even make their crochet radar!
So anyway, that was a pretty fun little hooky interlude for me, I think I might hook up a few different shopping bags, there are lots of other stitch patterns that would look good as a bag, and this cotton was great to use. Might be nice to have a few up my sleeve for Christmas pressies......
( I used the Heirloom Organic Cotton 8ply in the pale lilac and pale lime for this one, but they would be nice in any combination of this lovely soft cotton. It is available in my shop too!)
At the moment I have so many projects on the go, I really need to get cracking finishing off some of them!! I sound like a broken record I know, but the Autumn Harlequin is so close to finished, I can't wait!
I hope you have lots of great things happening in your life at the moment, and lots of fun hooky time scheduled too! :)
Do you read crochet magazines, seen any good patterns lately?
Have a lovely day!
