Had to charge up the camera battery! Here’s a finished photo of Scarf number three in my series and the beginning of number four.
This is in a periwinkle colour that I love, so a joy to knit. I’m using one of my own patterns, tweaking the stitch as I go and loving the result so far. Anxious to have these done and in the store. Anxious too, to get some of these older patterns written and formatted for sale. Seems an age since I had time, have been very busy with writing – my other favourite activity.
Book Pr0n! Almost as good as Yarn Pr0n. Interweave had a sale and I went a little mad, nice to see more publications about crochet coming out. I’m sure that just like knitting had a renaissance several years ago, as young designers discovered it; so will crochet. It does not aspire to be like knitting, it stands on its own and just needs the right combination of hook, yarn and good design principles to make something beautiful. The Finer Edge, Seamless Crochet, Unexpected Afghans and The Harmony Guides: Crochet Edgings and Trims, all look to be an excellent resource for my own designs. And because I DO knit more than crochet – The Jane Austen Knits magazine was irresistible, I think this is the third one. Some gorgeous knitting photography in this one, I could purchase just to look.
Last not least; another picture of my guy’s scarf. Shows the colours a bit better. It’s snowing here again, must finish the fringe so he can wear it!
PSPRP is still very much under construction. Moving the old format (which was actually three separate blogs – thank goodness technology has evolved!) to WordPress is a time-consuming labour of love. I want to be sure all the old stuff is safely attached here. Bear with me as I add the galleries back and add new. I’m wanting to see the Reader Knits gallery get much bigger!
“Fibre Funnies” from the Blogger format, may again have its own page or will be viewable as a category. We fibre people have a great sense of humour 🙂 I added a Jargon / Terminology page for those who may not be as familiar with fibre-y blogspeak and for the difference between American and Rest Of The World knitting terms.
Pop back from time to time to see what’s been added if you wish 🙂
