FO and New Pattern Release! 2013

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 5:05 am

2013 2013 2013 <div style="text-align: justify;">In my haste to get sidetracked by even more new projects, I spent my Saturday crocheting not one, but two new bits of kit for my current LRP character.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174298640/image_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174298640/image_medium2.jpg" width="346" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">First up, a new snood. I've been wearing the <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/projects/supertinks/perky-snood">old blue one</a>&nbsp;at every event since I first made it two years ago. While perfectly serviceable for normal daily wear, it doesn't really pass muster any more for a special occassion. As we are holding a coronation at the next event, and I've been talked into wearing a "proper" dress (<a href="http://www.dornbluth.co.uk/?page=shop/flypage&amp;product_id=416">this one</a>, if you're interested), I decided I needed a new snood in the right colour. I picked up a ball of bright red Patons 100% Cotton 4 ply and got to it.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">As it turns out, I modified the original pattern quite seriously when I made the first one, but didn't make any useful notes. I had to get the old one out and keep comparing the two to make sure I was doing it the same. I think I've achieved that! I also made notes this time, so when I come to make a third one (I'm thinking yellow/gold next time) I won't have to figure it out again.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">To go with the new snood and the fabulous dress, I decided I needed matching gloves. I had intended to go back to the <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/afternoon-tea-fingerless-gloves">Afternoon Tea Fingerless Mitts</a>&nbsp;and do another pair of those, but I don't seem to have a copy of the pattern (and I certainly don't remember having to pay for it before!). &nbsp;A new plan was needed. I had a look on Ravelry but couldn't find anything quite like I wanted. Luckily, inspiration struck and half an hour later I had a brand new pattern flying off the hook.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174424523/DSC03392_medium2.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="345" src="http://images4-b.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174424523/DSC03392_medium2.JPG" width="400" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Aren't they fab? The construction is quite interesting, working into both edges of a foundation single crochet chain before adding the button band and button holes seamlessly. Then it's join in the round and within a few short rows the entire glove is done. The best bit is that they are ridiculously easy to modify for size!</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">To help explain the construction of the cuff, I even drew up a chart. The pattern is available <b>for free</b>&nbsp;in my Ravelry store <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tea-party-matinee-gloves">here</a>&nbsp;and I can't wait to see if anyone else decides to knock up a pair.</div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div style="text-align: justify;">In my haste to get sidetracked by even more new projects, I spent my Saturday crocheting not one, but two new bits of kit for my current LRP character.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174298640/image_medium2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="400" src="http://images4.ravelrycache.com/uploads/supertinks/174298640/image_medium2.jpg" width="346" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">First up, a new snood.
