The Crochet Liberation Front Patch

This is my latest project. I volunteered to test the pattern for this patch for Share....she designed it for inclusion in the new Crochet Liberation Front crochet pattern book, which will be offered for sale later this year. I am hoping her pattern makes the cut. I really liked it and that was the main reason I volunteered to test the pattern for her. If you are on Ravelry, you can join the Crochet Liberation Front Forum or if you dont belong to Ravelry, you can check out the CLF blog.

This was really my first foray into anything remotely resembling Tapestry Crochet. Its not tapestry, as the back and the front arent identical. but keeping track of the different colors and picking them up and letting them down correctly took time to master....and using thread and tiny hooks made it even more challenging. After a few messed up tries, I finally got the hang of it. Oh, and the patch isnt narrower at the bottom...thats my lousy camera work. Its an even rectangle :)

Now I just have to figure out where I want to put the patch. I am going to use Heat Bond to adhere it to whatever I finally decide to put it on. A jacket, maybe? Or a project bag? Where ever I put it, though, its going to look cool! Many thanks to Share for giving me the pattern and the opportunity to make this great patch!

On to other things now....

Crochet, Away!

I Am Still Here!

I know its been awhile since I posted. Reason being I havent finished any projects since the hoodie. I have been busy with family issues, but things are settling down. I am working on a few things and hope to be done them soon.....especially the sundress hat and diaper cover for Sydney......her first birthday is in May. Hard to believe its been almost a year. Anyway, I hope to have something new to post soon. Hang in there.....and keep on hookin'!

Crochet, Away!
