What’s hookin’? – Mod pod dress

THIS is what’s hookin’. Finished it today. BOOYAH!

I plan to publish a pattern for this; I just have to work out a few kinks first. It might not show in this picture, but on the inside it’s very much a MacGyver duct tape and paper clip construction:). Whatever, I’m still proud. It was my mission to design a crochet dress I’d actually wear; mission accomplished!

Till next time, my rockin’ crochet buds!

Freebie Friday: Queen of Hearts fingerless gloves

Hey there! I released a new pattern today AND practised my newly acquired picture taking skills. So here you go. Freebies for the weekend!

Queen of Hearts: a pair of textured fingerless gloves for a look that says ‘Yes. I crochet. Sexily.’
Suitable for advanced beginners and up. Enjoy!

Recoverista test: DIY product pics at home

For a while now I’ve been aware that the pictures I take of my patterns are severely less impressive than the patterns themselves. Naturally, that had to change. And since I am the know-it-all cheapskate you’ve come to adore – don’t argue, hmmmkay? – I decided I could very well take matters into my own hands!

Since I consider the outcome a success, I’d like to share my tactic! Because believe me, if my pictures came out looking like this, with that setup…there’s no limit to what YOU can do.

NEW PATTERN! Let sleeping crocs lie (MonstrosiTees)

Pattern for a curled up, sleeping crocodile figurine. The curved back ridge is, appropriately, made up of crocodile stitches. Perfectly cute and adorable…until it wakes up.
