Love Reading? The Elegant Bookmark (s) are a must!

Are you an avid reader? Is someone you know? If so, you can’t go wrong with making a bookmark. My daughter seems to think books are like WIPs – it’s fine to have 6 books on the go! It drives me bonkers just thinking about

This easy crochet scarf pattern will work up super quickly, and it’s the perfect stash or scrap busting project! When my testers were making their scarves a few of them asked me what the stitch was called as they were unfamiliar with it but loved 

Crochet in Public Day – June’s Free CAL Square Pattern

Crochet in Public Day – June’s Free CAL Square Pattern

Worldwide knit (and crochet) in public day is on June 11th this year. 

How could I not acknowledge this day in my  corner to corner CAL?!

My tester for this square will be turning hers into a WIP bag! What are you making with your square?

This event started in 2005 and by 2009 there were over 750 events around the world celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day.

 

 

So on the second Saturday in June, will you be taking your WIPs to a local library, park or cafe? Will you work on your WIP on the bus, while watching your child play sports or while they run around outside? Do you plan to meet other fiber artists somewhere to enjoy the sun and maybe learn something new?

Or will you be teaching someone a new stitch or tip to help with their crochet or knitting?

How will I be spending June 11th?

I will take my WIP to my local coffee shop and work on a project while my hubby and daughter enjoy breakfast out. I am hoping to take a WIP everywhere with me and make a reel or take some photos of all of the places I will crochet!

Want to join me?? I would love to see some photographs of where you will be crocheting to mark the day!

PART OF THE KINSHIP CAL 2022

Throughout 2022 I am releasing one square a month based around international days and holidays that are not political or religiously motivated. This is why I choose to call this the Kinship CAL – because everyone can join in and just have fun with it.

The Crochet in Public Square is for June. If you want to check out the other squares so far you can visit my round up post here.

NEW TO CORNER TO CORNER?

I have a learn to corner to corner course that has helped a lot of crocheters to master the art of corner to corner. We go through it step by step from reading the patterns to how to do the stitch, increases and decreases to colour changes. I will show you how to work both squares and rectangles too. We even make a couple of free pattern projects together!
