Out with the Old and in with the New!

I'm so excited! I have lots of new things for the shop! Rather than have a very long post I thought I would spread them out over a few days worth of posts. So to start with:

A brand new crochet pattern by Gardiner Yarn Works! This wrap looks so warm and snuggly! There are also a couple of new knitting patterns that look really awesome and tempting to knit. Make sure to check them out! Also, Gardiner Yarn Works has updated all of their patterns with higher definition photos and a few new photos for old designs. If you have bought a pattern from me and want the new file just drop me an email with the pattern name. I have a list of everyone who has bought a pattern, so I can check against the list.

Next up are a couple of patterns from Caffaknitted. She has the most awesome soft toy patterns! I just love them. This is Mr. Abominable. Doesn't he look soft enough to cuddle with? I definitely think so. She also has a brand new pattern out called Jess, which was commissioned by UK singer/song writer Jess Lewin for her new CD cover. Both patterns look so adorable I might just have to try one out.

Lastly on the list is a brand new designer called Crochet All Day. She crochets these lovely felted animal bags that are simply wonderful. I had the chance to see a couple of her designs in person last year at Oregon Flock and Fiber. I know my mother would just love one of these bags. I think I might try playing around with dyeing some felting yarn and giving a try at crocheting. I haven't done it for a few years, but I am sure that it will come back, especially with the incentive of having one of these awesome bags!
