I am almost finished with Jacob's new bib. It is coming along very nicely, and I am going to be really pleased with this design.
I am also working on my new design for next month's column. I can hardly believe it is almost March!
And true to form, March is coming in like a LION here in Upstate New York!

We had so much fun taking these close-up photos of the new yarn! Aren't the colors so nice? The Lion Brand Suede is called Spice, and it is so soft. The Paton's Bohemian is called Artistic Taupes and has so many pretty colors in it. I am almost finished with Mary's hat in the Bohemian. It is so very soft! I will post a picture of it when I am done. I am also finished with the Piggie Bag Holder and, of course the Bunny Towel Holder and both are now photographed. I just have to put the bow and the windchimes on the Lamb, and she is completely done also!

I started on my new column for next month. I think I am going to be really happy with this design, but we will see!
I also found some really pretty new yarn by Paton's. It is called Bohemian, and is bulky weight, and so very soft. I have a friend who has breast cancer, and is going through chemo therapy right now. I want to make her a warm, winter hat with it! I also picked up a skein of Lion Brand Suede in Spice color. It is so pretty and so soft to touch. If I get the chance, I will take a picture of it and post it here.

In the meantime, I am also working on some Springtime crochet items for my website. A Bunny and Lamb head windchimes and towel holder, and a new Piggy Bag Holder. I can't wait to finish these items. It has been a very long time since I updated at my website!
Of course, it will be almost exclusively about crochet, and the small amount of knitting that I have begun taking up recently; yes~! KNITTING, also! I wonder if this blogging will be something I will keep up with? Only time will tell! We will see.

The patterns offered at our website Cute Crochet are designed exclusively by needlework pattern designer, Jocelyn Sass. They are all original patterns and are copyrighted by the designer. We are pleased to also offer a select number of original patterns for sale by Michele Wilcox and Darla Fanton!
Please note that Cute Crochet sells only the crochet instructions for making the individual items. We do not sell the completed crochet project. Cute Crochet opened for business in October 2001. We started with a small, select number of patterns and our numbers just keep growing! Cute Crochet grew out of a love of crocheting and a love of designing. Combine that with a love of country graphics and a desire to sell crochet patterns over the internet, and here we are! Of course, it did not happen all at once~! Much time, work and energy goes into the business of Cute Crochet. Jocelyn Sass is the resident designer, pattern writer and editor, photographer and photostylist, graphic designer, website designer, blogger, bookkeeper, order fulfillment staffer and shipper. Between 1990 and 2010, she wrote the bi-monthly pattern column for 'Crochet World' magazine called Country Treasures and then Timeless Treasures.
In addition to the original website, Cute Crochet, where Jocelyn sells printed crochet patterns by postal mail, she also opened two different Etsy shops recently. The first, Too Cute Crochet, sells original, new crochet patterns for wearable accessories for babies, children and women. These patterns are delivered to the buyer's email address by pdf, so the purchase of the pattern is almost instant. In addition, she opened another Etsy store called Cute Crochet Shop and sells some of her original Cute Crochet crochet patterns by pdf email delivery. These patterns are the same crochet patterns that are sold at www.cutecrochet.com. You now have the choice of whether you want the printed pattern or to receive the pdf pattern almost instantly!
Needlework came naturally to me. My mother taught me to knit at age 10, and I haven't been without a needle or hook in my hand since. Crochet has been my passion for over 30 years. I have been lucky enough to turn that passion into a design business for nearly 20 years. I love color! Skeins of yarn all together contain some of the most wonderful color! My most favorite thing is to look at all the glorious colors of yarn, combine it with a hook, and turn it into something cute and whimsical. I guess I never grew up ... lucky me!
