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.

♥ We specialize in easy CROCHET accessory PATTERNS for baby, children & photographers!
WHY should you buy patterns from Too Cute Crochet?
1. I have been designing for over 20 years and my patterns are written in an easy-to-understand format.
2. ALL patterns come with an ACCURATE gauge, so that you have the best chance of crocheting your item in the correct size. Without an accurate gauge, your item will NOT fit the intended wearer!
3. ALL patterns come with a row by row stitch count, so you will always know if your item is coming out correctly.
4. Each size of the pattern is fully written out, so you need only to print the one size you are working on at that time, which makes the patterns easier to follow!
5. All patterns are PROFESSIONALLY formatted, have DETAILED instructions and are EASY to follow
6. Your purchase comes with email pattern support directly from Jocelyn Sass, the designer of the patterns!
We are located at: http://toocutecrochet.etsy.com
I am so fortunate to have been designing in crochet and other needlework forms for over 23 years! I have over 400 crochet and needlework designs published in books and magazines & now I am happily self publishing crochet patterns for sale. About a year and a half ago, my oldest daughter, Gina started her own photography business featuring newborns and families.
She asked me to design some crochet photo props (that are so popular today) she could use for her adorable babies. This venture has blossomed into a great partnership for us! I design and crochet baby items Gina wishes to use in her business and she showcases them beautifully with her professional photography. It is a match made in heaven!
I am so excited to announce that I have opened another Etsy shop dedicated to trendy CROCHET PATTERNS for WOMEN AND TEENS! Please visit the link below to see my new shop, Jocelyn Designs!

The Original Company
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.
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.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
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 over 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!
