Fun from Valley Yarns!

Women's Striped Pullover is my newest pattern - this one is offered by WEBS and is in their Southwick yarn, a cotton/bamboo worsted weight.

I loved making this sweater - I am totally into the texture and feel of the yarn. It has a rolled hem, cuffs, and collar, and set-in sleeves, and is available in five sizes from S to 2X.

I had no idea the pattern had been released yet until folks starting giving it favorite hearts on Ravelry! The designer is always the last to know :-)

Getting Loopy! was a little wild last night - there were some technical difficulties that prevented me from starting the show on time so we went a bit over on the other end so as not to cut off the fabulous Dora Ohrenstein, from Crochet Insider. We were chatting away about a variety of things including the wonders of vertical crochet, and after the live stream went off, Dora hit me with her fabulous crochet rap - Stick It! Even if you don't listen to the whole show you should zip on over there to hear they rap song - there is nothing like it!

Just finished up another sweater, this time for Caron International. Now I am writing patterns and working on my book projects. School is out for the Kiddo next week and I am trying to blast through as much as I can until she is home for summer vacation.
