Springing Ahead

It may be 26 degrees outside here in Central PA, but in my mind it's a beautiful 65 degree spring day! Looking at the new designs, colors and patterns of this upcoming spring fashion palette, I'm going to add stripes and polkadots to the ribbon (mostly grosgrain). Plan on the traditional navy, black and pink polkadots (but I'll add more). I'll incorporate the preppy stripes along with wider stripes as well.
The real challenge will be in adding stripes to the actual design of the wristlet. Look for my one-color designs to transition into this season's pattern look--stripes! I'm getting so excited already!!!
Hope you all are having a great day whereever you are! It's my day off today and I am anxiously awaiting a much needed hair color/cut!!!

Happy New Year!!

Thanks to everyone who ordered from me for their holiday gifts! I have received such wonderful feedback and I am thrilled that so many people are enjoying my little creations! I love making the wristlets and it brings me great joy to know that lovely ladies and young ladies are walking around with these tokens on their wrists, too!!
Right now I am taking a little break, but will get back to making more in mid to late January. I've been a skier all my life and I decided to teach skiing at Ski Roundtop. I love it and boy are we having a beautiful start to the ski season! The snow is great--best I've ever skied on a consistant basis at Ski Roundtop!! But, have no fear.... my crochet hook is still near! If anyone is interested in purchasing a wristlet for Valentine's Day, please email me your request. I will only make a few more "Winter" wristlets and then I'll be switching gears for the Spring.
My Spring yarn is a cotton weight and I typically look for what the designers are using in their palette to select my colors. I always do black, brown and pink.... so count on those. The prices will be the same, but the ribbon will be some satin and more grosgrain. I'll still have the rosettes and "bling", and I'm working on adding a little different design as well. You'll just have to stay tuned to see what that is!!
Keep checking back my friends! Between teaching skiing this winter, Payton's gymnastics meets and Samantha's soccer, I'm going to be very busy! Don't hesitate to contact me to order! That's what I'm here for:)
