International Crochet Day Debut: Blusa Queen

Here she is! International Crochet Day was the perfect day to finally show Blusa Queen online and in public. I wore her to work and received some nice compliments. I was happy to say that today is International Crochet Day. “Is there really such a thing?” Yes. Yes, it sure is. Next year the holiday should be even more known if the current buzz continues.

I quickly took this in the morning before work. I’ll take some more pictures later and be back with some commentary about what adaptations I made to the original pattern and other observations.

Blusa Queen Update

Blusa Queen is finished. She’s being blocked as I type this.

My time has been devoured with working on crochet designs and submissions. I now have a few crochet designs floating out there so we will see what comes of this.

My first published crochet design will hopefully appear this winter. When it happens, I’ll be here to shout with all the details.

Queen Update

I’m nearing the end on this project. I’m working on the 2nd sleeve and then the fun part begins. The ruffles! I can’t wait to put the frill on this jacket.

Ugh! Don’t look too closely at my pits in that first pic. I’m a child of the 60s and 70s. LOL!

I had to take a break from Connecticut Avenue and a couple of other “winter” projects. It’s too hot here and and just can’t make myself touch that wool.

I have some accessories projects that are almost done. Cute and fly stuff!
