New Pattern Ready Now – Roses and Ivy

We will be crocheting-a-long to my new afghan pattern, starting in January on my Ravelry board.  Roses and Ivy is now available for purchase.  Pattern price is $6.00 and you can take 20% off the price of the pattern by using coupon code JanuaryCAL , good until January 31, 2015.

Comprised of octagon, square, and triangle motifs, this pattern uses cluster stitches and post stitches to complete a dense and warm afghan.  The little octagons are a lot of fun to crochet.

What do you think?  🙂

Addictive Crocheting

It is a beautiful Sunday in New York, and my daughter and I enjoyed the day as she prepared mentally for her first full week back to school.  She is a hard-working 11th grader.  Whenever I have a minute, I grab one of my Modern Flowers and hook a few rounds.  The pattern is so much fun and keeps pulling me back in!  This one is going to be in three colors of a self-striping yarn with some olive green solids and framed in beige.  I am using a K hook to keep it nice and drape-y.

Mystery’Ghan 2014 – Finished!

First post on my new blog.  I am hoping to use this site to introduce new designs and store free  patterns for download.  Still figuring out how to navigate but I’ll get it.  We are finishing up Mystery’Ghan 2014 on my Ravelry board.  Finished afghans are beginning to appear.  Many awesome versions out there; makes me so happy!  Here is mine:


I will add more soon.  I am working on a name for the afghan – I’m thinking something to do with Sunrise?


Here is a new pattern I posted last week as I was finished with the Mystery’Ghan and itching for something new to get excited about.  So far it is being well-received and I can’t wait to see finished versions.  Modern Blanket of Flowers:
