Since I have been going through my old archives of class samples and patterns, this is another one I have re-done in a PDF format for sale. I have dubbed her Emmaline - a crochet hat for a lady. She is obviously feminine but not frilly and has an outstanding flower embellishment as every lady should have on her summer hat. I created this pattern in 2005 and at that time made it out of hemp with hand-dyed hemp flowers. This incarnation is crocheted using Louet Euroflax worsted weight 100% wet spun linen in a lovely terra cotta color. I am offering this pattern for sale on Ravelry and in my Etsy shop. It is a nice addition to that summer wardrobe of accessories. It certainly would be beautiful worn with a nice linen dress or even a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
My ruffle adventures continue as you can see. These little wristwarmers are just too cute and have been receiving a great reception from my customers. I offer a pattern for these as well as finished items. What a great gift for the holidays!
As I resurrect more items out of my workroom, I will be posting them as well. There are some great shawls and other designs still lurking. Additionally, I am working on lots of new handspun yarns and projects. Just yesterday, I received a box of gorgeous yarns from Ozark Handspun which are designated for some exciting new items for TNNA January 2009! The new colors and yardage open up a lot of design possibilities. I can't wait to start working with it!
