Hello, back again after a long hiatus.  My plan is to post a new project twice a month.  I am working on writing up a backlog of developed patterns. So, stay tuned...

Here is a new one: Spa Face Cloth.  It is a great beginner project, and will give you a chance to practice the basic stitches, and learn a simple shell edging.

Welcome! Celebrating first Post

Welcome!

I love crochet, do you?  I started out at age 5 when my grandmother taught me to make Granny Squares from an Aunt Lydia's rug kit.  The colors were cocoa brown, bright pink and white.  From then on, I've taught myself to crochet, tackling all sorts of patterns, and being curious about experimenting. Asking myself what will happen if I combine stitches in different ways.

The construction of this purse is spiral rounds, which eliminates any seams.  This method also allows for creativity with color changes and bands of decorative stitches.  

One decorative stitch I keep coming back to is spike stitches.  Spike stitch elongates a stitch to reach down and over previously worked rows, and results in interesting textural and color contrast. 

So here it is.  I will be testing my pattern to work the bugs out. I'm picky, so I will work my written pattern three times to insure that I can work it from …
