Hello March 2015!
It’s March and I’m more than late to the party with this month – in fact this entire year so far seems to have flown by at a rate of knots and I barely know where it has gone!
The last few months have been bursting at the seams with work, work, work. But, I’m happy to say that in the last couple of weeks I have been managing to sneak in some fresh new personal projects. I have finished up my very own Caponcho – and let me tell you this is the best garment for chilly springtime and I won’t be taking it off anytime soon!
Well the first part of this year have been working like a crazed thing on a secret project – which I’m happy to say that it’s not all that secret any more.
Friends, I have a new book coming out later this year….
Modern Granny Square Crochet & More, £12.99, CICO Books will be on sale in early September! I am so stoked to finally be able to speak about this project! I had such a blast making the collection of projects for this book – it was a long and hard process that really tested my motivation, discipline and enthusiasm, but I’m so so happy and proud to be working over the final details of this book and getting it ready for print!
While I’m talking about books – Thank you all for your kind words and support of my Arm Knitting Book, £12.99, CICO Books which came out earlier this year. Have you tried arm knitting? Have you made any projects? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been making – and, it would be awesome if you could leave a review on Amazon too!
Want to try arm knitting – then be sure to check out my arm knitting tutorial for CICO Books over on YouTube!
So, what can I tell you about the month ahead? Well, for the most part I will be on the road touring with The Vilene Sewing Club and sharing a few fun mini make projects (for those not able to come along, I’ll be sharing the how-to guides here after the shows are finished!).
To keep myself out of trouble and sane over the next few weeks on the road, I’ve decided that a mini hexi project is the perfect on-the-go make for me – so let’s see how this grows in my down time between workshops over the coming weeks!
Be sure to let me know if you’re coming along to any of the springtime shows – and do swing in past The Vilene Sewing Club to say Hi!
So, friends, what does march have in store for you?
