Easy Textured Cowl Matching Cowl and Gloves pattern As promised, here is the matching Cowl to my Easy Textured Fingerless Gloves, which I posted last week. Once I had decided what to do with this yarn this set worked up nice and quickly, and are keeping me lovely and warm this November. I’m actually wearing them indoors to save putting on the heating too much! I have had lots of fun experimenting with different ways of buttoning this cowl. I hadn’t realised there would be so many options when I designed it!

Flowers I can't tell you how happy I am this year pottering about in my little 4m x 4m back yard, prettifying it for the summer. It really is the tiniest of spaces but it feels cosy and manageable and gives me just enough outdoor space to play in without any tremendous responsibility. It is somewhere that I can sit with a morning coffee, crochet a little, chat with friends, play with Little B, grow flowers, sip a chilled drink on a sunny weekend afternoon with J and hang my laundry out to dry. Zola- Bulky Stacked Shell Shrug/ Cowl- free crochet pattern ZolaBulky Stacked Shell Cowl and Shrug This bulky cowl is super simple to make. Its front post triple crochet and stacked 3dc shells give it a much more intricate look than the pattern really is. I love the versatility in this pattern.

crochet I spent about an hour standing in the craft store Saturday staring at a wall of yarn in the coolest muted tones and edgy colors ... a palette I would have murdered for (with my bare hands) years ago. Seriously. I'm especially impressed with the acrylic selection. Vanna's Choice, Cotton Ease (which also has great labels), and Red Heart Soft are all being made in totally amazing colors. Back in the 90s when I was crocheting ALL THE TIME, there wasn't a lot to choose from if you were making $10 an hour in San Francisco and wanted muted, edgy colors. OK, there was *nothing* to choose from.

Shabby Chic Rose Granny Free Pattern Shabby Chic Rose Granny By AnnooCrochet Designs Throughout history no flower has been so loved, or renowned as the rose. Rose is older than the human hands that first cared for it, drew pictures of it, and celebrated rose in music and lore. Forty million years ago, a rose left its imprint on a slate deposit at the Florissant Fossil Beds in Colorado, and fossils of roses from Oregon and Montana date back 35 million years, long before humans existed. Fossils have also been found in Germany and in Yugoslavia.
Puffed Daisy Hexagon Season's Greetings! I'm sorry that it has been a while since my last post, but I've had some technical gremlins here that have kept me off-line! It's been wet, wet, wet here for so long that I've forgotten the last completely dry day we've had – mainly miserable rain, but mixed with some snow for the last few days. Not pleasant to be out in, but the perfect excuse to stay by the fire and crochet! I'm still bobbling along, but the rounds seem to take an age to complete now, so I can only manage one or two rounds at a time...
Armed only with a hook and a massive stash I was perusing through craft magazines at the bookstore when I came across the Summer 2012 issue of Stitch Craft Create. In it I found an article about basic yarn dyeing with food colouring products. In particular, I was intrigued by the idea of solar dyeing, which is a method that uses the heat from the sun to set the dye colour as an alternative to the more conventional method of the microwave or oven. With near-record high temperatures this summer, I figured I had a perfect opportunity to try this out. I bought 4 undyed skeins of yarn from a cute little LYS in Peterborough called Needles in the Hay.
