New Pattern & a New Focus

You may've noticed, this blog has been quiet for awhile.  But it isn't dead!  No, in fact I just cleaned out all the dust this morning, updated everything, and added a new page - a Gallery!

Wherefore?  Because I have rededicated this blog to be used as a home for my free knit and crochet patterns.  That's right - you'll only find fiber-related gibberish here!  Free projects, new published patterns, and the occasional fiber tip.  If you like yarn, please follow me and share the link with your fibery friends!

With that in mind, here's the specs for a new crochet pattern I released recently... Vanya Armlets!

Make a classy crochet statement with these textured fingerless gloves! These long gloves are fitted through the patterned cuff and scrunched around the wrist. The slanted front-post stitch design is easy enough for beginners yet interesting enough for advanced crocheters. Whip a pair up as a gift for a girlfriend—or yourself!

♥size G/6 (4.25mm) crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge
