Colourful Crochet

I don't know if you do this, but I have this unconscious habit of trying to find a theme for my day/week/month/year/life.  I guess it's a bit like finding a story that fits what's going on, that helps you make sense of the world.  (I realise this sounds like it could be getting pretty deep, pretty quickly, don't worry.  It's really not).





This month the planets have aligned and my theme seems to have become working with Natura XL Cotton (see?  Told you).  I had a very exciting commission from a super mag, using this lovely, smooth, chunky yarn.   I'd also started working on Modern Granny hexie design using it because of the very beautiful, deep, burnt colour palette they have, and THEN the very clever and super lovely MarRose aka Marianne Dekker-Roos, asked if I'd like a copy of her new book 'Colorful Crochet'.




Well, you don't say no that do you?!  It's very much in Marianne's vibrant, eclectic style, and  amongst all the lovely, bold patterns was a very cool, graphic, linear cushion that is right up my strasse.  And it is made using?  You guessed it: Natura XL Cotton.


There's a whole variety of patterns for all sorts of skill levels (and using all sorts of yarns!), and she has very kindly also given me an extra copy to give away to one of you guys.  So if you'd like one too, just leave a comment here, and on Monday 3rd July we'll randomly pick a winner ;)
