Speaking of Magazine Commissions....

The Spring 2014 Love of Crochet is now available, and look what's on the cover:

The Frost Blossom Wrap by Sue Perez. (Blogger coughs modestly while grinning from ear to ear - though it sounds like a physiological impossibility it can be done).

This is my second cover project, and very exciting too.

Also in this issue - the lacy Frost Blossom Hat, to match the above wrap:

and the Periwinkle Mitts, a quick and stretchy slip-stitch pattern simply loaded with texture:

All found in the new Love of Crochet Spring 2014.

It's fun to see these projects again - they were completed and shipped off in the dim mists of mid-2013, and I'd nearly forgotten what they looked like.

Here are a couple of photos taken at home last year:

Tune in six months from now to see the commissions I finished this week. :)

  17. Oh Sue, I am just BLOWN AWAY by your talent. You are the crocheter I want to be when I grow up!
    I wonder if I could make that wrap, or would it be too hard for me? Oh well, I could always ask for help from the CREATOR! :-)
