At long last I can show you the pictures of my latest published design! This is "Avery's Wavy Scarf" from Interweave Crochet Accessories 2010
http://www.interweavecrochet.com/. I'd love to hear what your favorites are. There are a ton of great patterns in this issue. It's not included in subscriptions, so you'll have to go to your LYS or a nearby bookstore to get it, but you won't want to go without it!
I finished making some swatches last night for a new project and started stitching the model for my next pattern to self-publish. This one will be fairly quick and easy, so I hope to have the pattern available within a month. I need to block and photograph my swatches today and work some more on stitching this next project. I've also been working diligently on getting my accounting books all set up -- a necessary evil that comes with designing and selling things. Two of my girls, Princess and Baby, have been sick with a virus (high fevers and hurting tummies) the last 2 1/2 days. I've had a very snugglie baby sitting in my lap for most of that time, so it was a good time to have computer work to do, although it would have gone faster with 2 hands available. Oh well, snugglie babies are awfully nice! Well, it's going to be a beautiful day!
