How Ravelry Crocheters Make the Ruffles Scarf!
One of my most versatile patterns to date has got to be the Ruffles Scarf. I have already posted here about a dozen ways to wear the scarf, and how to make a cowl and a wristlet from the pattern. There are currently 37 projects listed on Ravelry, and I love what crocheters are doing with the pattern! From using variegated yarn and different weights of yarn, to adding a pin or weaving a ribbon through, each crocheter adds a bit of their own personality. I chose some of my favorite projects, and all of their creators have graciously allowed me to show their work here on my blog. I hope these photos will inspire you to make your own version of the Ruffles Scarf!

My First Book: Crocheting Clothes Kids Love!
This past year has been so exciting for me and my Crochet Career. The absolute highlight was writing this book with my co-author, Ellen Gormley. Our editor recently sent us this photo of the final cover, so I finally get to reveal it! I love the creative freedom you are given when designing for children, so I was thrilled when Creative Publishing International asked me to write this book. It was 7 months of solid hard work, and thanks to the support of my family, I was able to pursue my dream of writing a book. It was such a pleasure to collaborate with Ellen, and I am excited for you all to see the fun we had designing the projects! The book will be out in February 2014, and late this summer I will begin talking about it. Bit by bit, I will be able to introduce and describe my projects and make suggestions for additional ways to use the patterns. Stay tuned for details!
