We just got back from 2 weeks away: went to the beach, jumped in the swimming-pool, ate tons of ice-cream to keep us cool… I managed to finish in time a third design to submit for that “One skein” crochet book. This one is for a cute little baby bolero, which I will probably also […]

When designing new patterns, I like to have a look at a million pictures of related-or-not projects, as it seems to help decide what I actually look for in that new design. As some of you may have figured, I’m on this total granny-square kick lately. So I’ve been hunting the internet, looking for all […]
