Banana Moon Studio Book One: Girls

Are you looking for beautifully designed girls clothing? Then April Garwood's book is just for you! April has 7 very sweet designs any little girl would love to wear! The collection is a very nice blend of all skill levels. Her cute little sweaters and shrug are a great way to learn to make garments. Don't you just love those rockin' red boots, too? If you are looking for a small gift for your little princess, how about this super cute book cover? My very favorite designs in April's book are the Capri pants and her leg warmers! What little girl wouldn't love these? And for those who are pretty new to crochet, why not try her cute hat, mitten and scarf set? It's a wonderful way to learn shaping and getting gauge. This is a book you will find yourself using over and over! You can find her book available at here, here or here.

Betsy's Shawl

Okay, who else can't believe it's October??? I have no idea where this summer went. Planning 2 Professional Development Days this summer seemed to make it slip away super fast! I meet so many new friends at the conferences this year - I really love going for that reason alone! It's awesome to be able to put a face to name you've met online! During the conference many of you saw me wear "Betsy's Shawl". I wrote this pattern for a very favorite cousin who is currently undergoing chemo. I wanted her to feel a hug while she is in treatment. Betsy is very dear to my heart. My shawl is worked side-to-side with the border added on at the end. It is a very easy shawl to make and the LB Collection® Silk Yarn is stunning!It makes any outfit pop!
