This has been such a fun set to create. I get more confident with these designs the more I do and its all gearing up to the big one Avengers Infinity war. The films out in April and my massive pattern set to go along with it will be release soon after.
I know a lot of people have been making these patterns and really enjoying them. One lady - Kelly send me this photo on Etsy to show me all the ones she's made. Isn't this just amazing, I think she made everyone I've released. Thank you Kelly for sending me this xxx
I've had a few crochet commissions for magazines and books on this month that have been taking up a lot of time but I've been trying to fit in a bit more knitting.
I didn't have enough yarn to finish the pair but I'd memorized the cable pattern repeat so I didn't want to start a new project and risk forgetting it. Instead I used the same cable pattern and made a dog coat for the adorable George at The York Makery.
Keighley for The York Maker and Alice of Alice yarns have started a lovely yarn podcast called String Theory Link to youtube
Go have a listen. George makes an appearance in the podcast and they asked for knitters to send in things for George to wear.
Its lovely to have knitting as a hobby again. I love crochet but sometimes it does feel like work. Its also very nice to be able to buy yummy yarns that are just for me.
Next up is a bit of a diversion for me. As a treat I bought myself a yarn dyeing kit. I have become a bit addicted to watching knitting podcasts and yarn dyeing videos on Youtube. I really wanted to have a go myself so I got a nice starter kit of Etsy.
The kit came with 200g of mini skeins so I had lots to play with.
I decided to try a different way of dyeing and hand-painted the yarns, wrapped them in clingfilm and steamed them. This worked much better. I got a lovely rainbow and a blue mix.
You may have noticed that there is a advert on the telly for a new crochet magazine called Big and little crochet. Thats what I've been working on so soon I'll do a post and show off the projects that I've contributed to this love set of books.
It seems impossible for me to take any work in progress photos without getting a cat in it. Hers another picture of Cal. She looks like shes about to get her hair cut in this photo.

I'm going to try and keep these in my shop for as long as I can, but I'll only every be listing them in small numbers as I don't want my house to turn into a factory.
If you want one and you see they are sold out, send me a message and I will add you to the list of pre-orders.
Thanks again to everyone who's been buying and enjoying my patterns. Your support means everything to me xxx
