I'm a bit of fan of Sunday brunch channel 4s Sunday morning entertainment show and usually while away the morning with tea, crochet and telly.
Last week though Simon made a passing comment that no one crochets anymore. Well as I was sat there doing just that I couldn't just let that go. I posted on their facebook page and sent them an email. It cause a lot of fellow crocheters to do the same and this week they ran a feature on crochet to make up for it and for a few seconds my omnipoms were shown off to the nation
I'm not sure Simon and Tim will ever be crocheters but it was so funny to see them utterly baffled having a try :)
If a brush with fame wasn't enough I have 2 books out this week.
amazon. I only have the one pattern in it, my Dot the dragonfly but she looks lovely and the book is full of lots of other fun bug patterns. If your a fan of amigurumi it'll give you lots of inspiration.
Now its published I guess its OK to show you some of my photos I took of my projects.
There are a lot of other photos but I'll wait and do a full blog post when I get m hands on the book.
Now I've got 11 days off my day job so I'm gonna have a great week and a bit of crochet. To kick things off the pattern for these flower coasters will be posted here later today. It'll be a free pattern and I'm taking the time to type it up in UK and USA abbreviations so everyone can have a go. This is a great pattern to gain a bit of confidence in crocheting in the round and you get something practical to rest your brew on when your done :)
