Why I’ve been so quiet…. (and a giveaway)
Poor blog – I’ve been neglecting you of late! In my defense, it’s hard to type when clutching a crochet hook and it’s rare to find myself without one in my hand these days! The reason is, I’ve been working on quite a few crochet designs – some of these have been commissions for Wernddu Alpacas which will be sold as part of a kit – pattern plus alpaca yarn – but I’ve also been working on my own patterns for sale and am pleased to present my first offering…..
These little wristwarmers are very cute, quick to make and use less than a 50g ball of yarn. What more could you ask for? I’m a little in love with them…..
The pattern includes instructions for three different cuff styles – ribbed, ribboned or buttoned – so there should be something (I hope!) to suit all tastes.
I’m also finalizing a special autumn themed neckwarmer which I hope to have ready for sale in the next few days. In the meantime, here’s a sneaky peek…..
Now, onto the giveaway….This is a very new venture for me so I’d love to here what people think of the designs. Are they the sort of things you might be tempted to make? Do you prefer to buy pattern pdfs online or do you favour a hard-copy print out? Also, any tips for selling? I’m considering also setting up a shop on Folksy but I’m not sure how well known it is. As a little incentive for you to share your thoughts, each person who comments will be entered into a draw to win a free pattern pdf – for either the wristwarmers or the neckwarmer (when it’s complete) – so please state your preference in your comment.
Finally, I hope you don’t mind me mentioning the shop on here. I don’t plan to bang on about it all the time I assure you. I don’t view this blog as a platform for advertising – it’s a place where I can share my thoughts, hopes and dreams (oh, and plenty of recipes for jam). However, as crochet design is coming quite a significant part of my life, I can’t really ignore it now can I? 🙂
