Just saw tonight that the newest issue of Crochet Today! was on the website and I had missed it! It has been up for a couple of days but we have been very busy enjoying an amazingly beautiful Tennessee October weekend with our two little men. I was excited when I logged on to Ravelry and saw this picture on my design page!!
This is my second men’s design and I love designing for guys because there are so few good men’s sweater patterns out there in my opinion. I can’t make any for my husband because he is a big anti-sweater wearer. (Boo…) But I am planning on designing more for my boys, especially now that Carson is almost one! Where does the time go?
I am currently working on a simple Halloween costume that I am whipping up for Carson to wear. We bought our older son, Christian (who will be 4 in December) a fireman’s outfit since he is totally obsessed with all things fire truck related. I didn’t think a crocheted fire coat would have the same appeal for him.
I am also dying to create another fabric-lined bag. I had to quit carrying my Buckle Bag because it met with an unfortunate tea accident. (Note to self, keep tea way far away from grabby baby!) So I had to go back to an older bag that I bought a while ago. I loved carrying the Buckle Bag because it held everything I needed and got tons of compliments. I was very flattered! Women kept asking me if I would make them one… if I only had time!!
I will be posting my simple baby/toddler costume soon and will get on that new bag as well. I bought some great lining fabric when I was shopping for fabric for the boys and can’t wait to start!
Thanks for checking out my newest design. See more of this issue at Crochet Today’s January Preview.
