Some days you need something ‘snuggly warm’ but elegant. This coat can be worn with a dress as a evening coat, but it also goes great with jeans. Lately, that is the driving force behind my crochet designs; can I wear it with a dress and can I wear it with jeans?
You've got to be able to have that option!
I’m designing like crazy, using tips I learned from Lily Chin (and her fantastic new book, Couture Crochet Workshop) and tips from other top designers. I’m playing with shapes, styles, drape, cling and zing (and a little bling!) I’ve finally fully developed the Knotty Generation Sweater Set Collection (aka Funky Girl Sweater Sets, but that name is alittle corny!!) I’m very proud of these designs! I’ve revamped my book proposal and will focus exclusively on this sweater set collection. I felt that my original book idea was too general, too much like all the other crochet books out there. I’m trying to find my edge and where I can fit in the crochet design industry and clothing design is my passion therefore it will be the center of my world (after my 2 boys and husband of course!)
Refine and Refine
We are expecting a major snow storm here in Minnesota and I’ve got in-laws driving up from Iowa via Texas, so I’m going to stock the pantry and fridge, and work on my WIPS;
- Warm Up America Afghan – Carolyn’s squares need to be put together!
- Stash Busting Coat – my next post is on this super FUN project!
- Ruffle Teal Shrug - re-doing the end of the sleeves, from ruffle to a wave.
