PATTERN RELEASE – Summer Breeze Bolero

Hello everyone!

I’m thrilled to let you know my Summer Breeze Bolero pattern is now available!

Head on over to lovecrafts.com and get your copy for FREE!

And a huge thank you to Paintbox Yarns for the yarn support! Their Cotton DK yarn was wonderful to work with.

This is an intermediate pattern involving yarn overs, slipped stitches and passing slipped stitches over, however, I made a little video showing you how to do the more difficult stitches, so I suggest you give it a try even if you’re a beginner knitter! I really hope you do!

Now off to finish up other patterns I’ve only half completed! LOL! Have a great day everyone.

Happy knitting!

The Summer Breeze Bolero…

I’ll be writing the pattern in the next week or so and it will be available on lovecrafts.com in plenty of time for the summer!

Thank you Paint Box Yarns for your support!

Now off to get this pattern written!

Stitch Holders…

O.M.G. Aren’t these the most adorable stitch holders you have ever seen?

Since I have so many projects on the go at all times, these give me a piece of mind that my stitches won’t fall off when I’m moving my projects around.

I’ve tried different stitch holders in the past, but they always eventually fell off my needles as I moved projects around. What I love about these ones, is they do not come off until you take them off!

They are Canadian made by Fox and Pine Stitches in Prince Edward Island. 🇨🇦

Head on over to her Etsy shop and check out all the different designs she has.

Happy knitting.

Requests for a pattern…

So, I included pictures of my Ruana I made myself in my little selfie photo shoot I did on the weekend.

I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I was going to write up the pattern for it and I decided I would! 😀

Life has been pretty busy lately so I can’t say when it will be released so just stay tuned. I will post it here on my blog!

So off to organize all my knitting projects and prioritize them. I feel like I’m all over the place lately with all the WIP’s I have. Time to finish things up!!

Happy knitting!

Product photos…

I’ve been unable to book a photo session for my pattern photo updates, so I’ve taken it into own hands! LOL!

I have to admit, it’s difficult getting creative when it’s just me, myself and I but I’m trying.

I did manage to get a few decent photos of my Demi Gloves and will be updating the photos in the pattern soon.

Off now to do some reading on how to have a successful selfie photo shoot!

Enjoy your day and happy knitting.

Spring is in the air…

Hi everyone!

I’ve been working on a new spring knitting pattern using Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Robin’s Egg Blue. It’s such a beautiful colour and such a great name!

I don’t usually do lacey knits, but thought I would give it try.

Here’s a bit of a sneak peek. The front panels are almost done and I’ll be starting on the back this weekend.

Well off to keep working on this.

Have a great Saturday!

Happy knitting.

My second pattern re-do complete…

My Demi Gloves pattern re-do is now done.

The pattern will be staying the same so you can still purchase it, it just won’t have really nice photos. 😉

I’m going through some of the first patterns I wrote to update the photos but also the pattern itself if needed. I want to make sure my instructions are clear.

I still have a few more patterns to re-do, but also new patterns to write up, so it’ll be a busy year for me.

I’m hoping to book a photo session late Spring so I can get everything updated and published by Fall. That’s the plan anyway.

Well, I have a lot of knitting to do and it won’t get done on it’s own, so off I go.

Have a great weekend and happy knitting.

Next pattern re-do

I’ve started working on my second pattern re-do. The Demi Gloves.

They are a double knit fingerless glove, knit flat and 2 at a time so both gloves are the exact same size.

The pattern is currently available, but I’m redoing it so I can take some nicer pictures. 🙂 These gloves were one of the first patterns I wrote!

What are you working on this Sunday?

Diana

First one done…

My first pattern re-do is done!

Now to update the pattern then into the photo shoot pile it goes.

I hope to get a few more patterns redone over the Christmas holidays so I can book a photo shoot early in the New Year.

Here’s a peek at the updated “Hooded Scarf”.

Happy knitting!
