magazine work update

Well its been a while since I wrote a post so there is lots to ctach you up on.

First up my family of hedgehogs made a visit to Simply crochet magazine

This was last months issue so its not in the shops anymore but you can still get the pattern from my etsy shop or you should be able to pick up a back copy of the magazine if you contact them via their website.

 This pattern has been really popular and I've seen lots of my hedgehogs popping up all over the Internet. Lucy over at Attic24 wrote a lovely blog post about hers. she adding it to an Autumn themed wreath which I can't wait to see.

 Lucy also inspired me to write a photo tutorial as the photos in the magazine didn't really show anything help with the construction of these guys. Hopefully this will help if anyone get stuck with the new spine stitch.

 This is the finished little hedgehog I made for the tutorial. She's such a little cutie. Before my mum can steal her I'm going to run a giveaway over on my facebook page to find her a new home. To enter just head over to my facebook page and post a comment on the photo of this little hedgehog :)

She is sitting on my latest project which is another version of the shawl pattern I did for craftseller magazine

This one is in Autumn colours and will be decorated with falling leaves.

The Craftseller pattern has flower and sparkle.

 Craftseller wanted a sparkly shawl that would make a good Christmas present. As you all know amigurumi is my crochet home but I love all forms of crochet so it was great fun to get to do something a bit different.

 This pattern is ridiculously simple to make if you know the basic crochet stitches.Its also really quick to make so if you are looking for a quick make for a last minuet present it works really well.

Along with the shawl pattern you also get flower corsage pattern that can be used as a shawl pin or just use it on its own as a corsage.

That caught me up a bit although Ive lots of new patterns that I'll be adding to my etsy shop soon so stay tuned :)
