Well, I got my subscription copy of Interweave Crochet Spring 2010 today! I think the pictures looked even better printed in the mag than they did online. They included a short blurb about me at the end of the pattern that includes my blog address and Etsy store URL. I should note that I have not been doing a lot in my store of late because I can hardly find time to do more than a few hours of crocheting each week. As my baby gets a little older and more independent I'll be doing more with that, but I'm thinking that I'll probably shift more toward just selling self-published designs there rather than finished items.
As an intro to the pattern the wrote a few things about the pattern, with a slight typo. This intro says that the dress size ranges from 6 months to 3T, but the smallest size is actually 3 months, and yes, it does work up quickly. I personally am planning to make a 12 month size dress for my own baby in the same yarn, but the color "Cherry Blossom."
This yarn is great! It is nice and soft, not too splitty, machine washable, and very affordable. You have to order it from http://www.lionbrand.com/, unless you are fortunate enough to live near their yarn studio.
Also, on page 9 of the magazine the "back to basics" section focuses on sewing stitches and mentions some of the stitches used in the "Bella Dress." I hope you all enjoy seeing it and making it! I'm hopeful that I might see some new followers who find my blog address after my pattern. If you are new to my blog for that very reason, Welcome!!! I'm so glad you're here!
Until next time everyone!
