2013 Indie Designer Giftalong – Join us!

31 Oct

A big bunch of independent designers on Ravelry (including myself) decided to organize a giftalong for the holidays with KALS/CALS, prizes and, probably best of all, a 25% discount on 100s of patterns to prepare for the gift season. There are over 160 designers taking part, so there is something for everybody.

Here’s a description of what it is, copied from the group:

What is the Indie Design Gift-A-Long?
It’s prepping for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from tons of indie designers! The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 2 month long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers. From November 1 – November 15, 2013 tons of indie designers will be discounting some or all of their patterns 25% for this event. There are ten KAL/CALs to participate in, prizes of all sorts given out, some games, and generally a lot of fun!

If you think you might be interested, go check the group for more detail. Enjoy!

A Beautiful Project

6 May

I have just finished a test for a fellow crochet designer, it is for a barefoot sandal pattern, crocheted with cotton thread. This was a first for me and I was a little bit anxious but it turned out to be easier than I thought.

Anyway, enough words, here’s my first “sandal” finished, Payal: A Mehndi Inspired Barefoot Sandal by Shrone Designs

A Few Crochet Projects

7 Mar

I just realised that I hadn’t posted in a little while…

Recently, I made 3 crochet projects, all tests for the designers. Actually, the first two are of the same pattern, except that I made a mistake in the diamond stitch in my first version and, therefore, redid it… It’s the Diamond Romance pattern.

My first version in Zauberball (with mistake)

My second version, with the correct pattern

My third project is a pair of Vanya Armlets (not published yet) by Rachel Petersen. I used Lana Grossa Qui and I love the end result

Sock Yarn Leftover Half Granny Square Shawl

7 Feb

My half granny square shawl is finished and I love it! It’s really bright, which is the main reason why I love it! I added a border to it, instructions can be found here.

2 Very Bright Projects in Progress

3 Feb

A little status update from my ASJ, I’m getting there, slowly…

And, yesterday, I started a very simple crochet shawl to use up all my leftover sock yarn:

Bluefin Tuna

8 Jul

I just made a super cute amigurumi tuna! It was a test for the designer, I love how it turned out! Pattern is here.

Quite Proud…

2 Jul

For two reasons, first it’s crochet and it’s a new craft to me and, second, I sewed the lining inside the bag and that is quite a challenge for me! I really like the finished product, a cute little bag! It was a test for the designer.
