We interrupt my knitting for this Crochet Update:

I know that my blog has been a little devoid of crochet content lately (so suffer) but today we have a bit of a bumper-crop to help make up for it. My first Genevieve tester (Leigh, over at Knit-Errant – such a clever blog name ;)) has finished the sweater, with no apparent glitches or ill effects! It looks good, and I’m a little jealous of the color she used – I love green. She’s so nice, I made her a button. You can grab it from my bloglinks to the right when you add her to your links – because you should totally add her to your links.

In other news, I knitted through my first ball of Wool-ease (and am now approximately halfway through the shrug, really pretty glad that worked out…) and decided to revisit my wayward crochet project, to give it another chance. It’s still not…quite…exactly what I had hoped it would be, but I like it well enough, I think. So here are some pictures of my Jungle Bugs! This is Fez….


And Pepe….

Pepe (1)

And Phil. Phil is the one who was giving me fits.

Phil (3)

Anyway, hopefully I will get the pattern for these typed up, tested, and all ready pretty quickly. I intend to sell the three of them as a set. Opinions?

    I’m so glad you like how the cardigan turned out! I hope I did justice to it. Thanks again for letting me test it. Too bad it gets so darn hot where I am during the summer, I want to wear it now! :smile:

    I love your bugs — they’re all so cute and you used such cheerful colors. I think they came out great!

  2. Julie says:

    Yeah, I got an opinion: CUTE!!! I love them! :) I also checked out Knit-Errant’s version of your Genevieve – it’s really lovely.

  3. Jennifer says:

    Oh, I love the bugs! I think a set is a good idea – though could you sell them individually and then also as a set (and the set would be a little cheaper than 3 separately)?

    Also, I tried your links but they don’t work for me…maybe it’s my computer? I want to see more of your stuff!

    I really love your bugs specially the one named Pepe and your blog aswell it’s really nice 😀

    also how did you get the crochetme mag logo on your blog? I can’t find the tag for the picturelink anywhere :sad:
