If you're thinking of attending these classes, signup as soon as you can! As you know, teaching is one of the big ways that I'm able to do this fulltime, so if you love my classes and want to see more of them, having you signup and take my classes is a great way for both of us to benefit! I also love to see repeat students - it always makes my day!
I've got two new patterns that came out with the April issue of Crochet!. I know it's not April: Annie's magazines are released well before their "official" date, so they can get to stores in time. The two designs are:
A fun and flirty cloche style hat, this is a project you could work up in a weekend. And accessible to beginners, the main stitches are chains and single crochets. If you can count, you can make this hat.
Worked in the same style as the hat, this bag is also accessible to beginners! A cute and fun clutch, suitable for spring, it gets its shaping for the short row wedges worked in contrasting colors. This pattern was also featured as an insert in the cover!
Both Points of Interest and City Girl can be bought at almost any of the big box craft stores: Michael's, JoAnne's, etc, as well as bookstores and online. I'd love to hear about what you think of these patterns!
