What inspired your design for this Crochet Society box?
I wanted to showcase the gorgeous colour changes in this amazing yarn, but also have something practical too.
The theme of this box is ‘Crocheting at the Beach’ – what unexpected places do you like to crochet? What are your top tips/must-haves for crocheting on the go?
I don’t really crochet in unexpected places, but I do tend to take it to most places I go. Chiropractor waiting rooms, school pick-up, holidays etc. If you are taking it with you, always take your little bag of scissors, yarn needle, stitch markers, hooks but most importantly, sufficient yarn. Running out of yarn is the PITS.
The yarn in this box is a Crochet Society exclusive – it isn’t even in the shops yet! How did you find it?
I loved the colour changes. I would definitely use it again and recommend it but would prefer if it was a little softer.
What is your favourite thing to design/make? Which of your designs are you most proud of.
Mandalas – mainly designs in the round. I can’t go passed making them. I’m most proud of my Connie’s Ray of Hope which raises awareness for cancers and also my Floral Dreams blanket, my largest pattern to date.
Any big crochet plans coming up?
I have a tendency to say ‘yes’ to everything which is not a very good thing when your crochet list is already longer than your yarn supply. Amongst other secret squirrel business, I’m working on self publishing my next crochet pattern book. It will be full of different designs like my first one. Ooh I have my Majestic Jewel Crochet Along coming out either late this year or early next year 🙂 I’m super excited about that one.
Tell us something unexpected about you!
Ooh something unexpected…I have a tattoo, an irregular heart beat, and I’m a people pleaser.
