First of all, many thanks for your patience and sorry for being away from my blog. Work on first book seems endless, but I’m pretty excited to see how it turned out and hope back to normal schedule somewhere in near future …or so ;o)
I’m so glad to letting you know that I’ve just got back edited Kristal collection, which is a part of my book, but we agreed that I’ll make it available as soon as possible ;o) Not to mention that you will see a sneak peek of book layout and find a book name on these pattern’s pages!
Kristal collection includes 5 designs, based on an idea to use same square motif in so many different ways—watch this lovely motif transform magically from a simple circle of stitches into an eight-petaled flower, then into a diamond, and finally into a gorgeous lace square! Work it in a single color for a pristine effect, or in combinations of different colors to highlight the changes in the pattern. Use different yarn weight and hook sizes to change the finished motif’s size. Even better, join it to other motifs as you go, and keep sewing to a minimum. As versatile as it is beautiful, the motif lends itself to several of the projects scheduled to be released this week:
1. Tropicana Blanket
2. Silverlace Blanket
3. Petalline Dress & Beach Cover
…. and hopefully the Dryad Scarf too—let me see.
Wish me luck and see you pretty soon ;o)
Love the color of the scarf <3
Love the blankets!
The blanket is SO delicate looking. It reminds me of a patio umbrella I made years ago-both gorgeous-I can’t wait to make the blanket. I also have a great granddaughter that I’d like to make the dress for. Excellent, excellent contributions!
where can i find the silver lace blanket directions?
All your designs are breathtaking!
LOVE everything you do!
Your designs are the best! Warmest wishes for you and this great book. It looks like it will be polished and professional with beautiful and inspiring projects. Here is to your great success!
Alla, I just love your designs. My granddaughters are so lucky to have so many of your creations. Can’t wait for the book.
I have a five week old granddaughter who has been in the NICU since birth and would love to wrap her up in this beautiful blanket and bring her home. Saddly she wont be home for at least three more weeks, plenty of time for me to make this for her. Thanks Alla your patterns are well written and easy to follow and understand.
I love the Dryad scarf. It’s the perfect scarf for me to enter in next year’s fair. Has that pattern been released yet?
