New Books from Crochet Kitten
Public Service Announcement
It’s important for all crocheters to know how to keep their kitties safe around their craft. Here are my tips on how to do so.
Mardi Gras Masque
This week our family was invited to our first Mardi Gras celebration since before we had children, but ah non! Times are tough post-COVID, and this year I’ve resolved to try to make-do or make-new before I go out and buy anything. Thank goodness I have my crochet skills to fall back on! Why go out and buy a Mardi Gras mask when I can whip one up from scrap materials I already have on hand? This beauty works up in just a couple of hours, so you’ll be ready for even last-minute celebrations.
Light-Up Crochet Star Ornament
It’s Christmas time at our house, and that means our dining room has become an impromptu Santa’s workshop for the month of December. Our family has a tradition of making Christmas ornaments to send with our Christmas cards each year, and this year I’ve been eyeing these fairy lights and thinking, “I bet I could crochet that.” And so my idea for light-up crochet star ornaments was born.
Crochet for Belly Dancers
This book combines the art of crochet with the art of belly dancing with 10 wearable crochet patterns, plus one amigurumi feline belly dancer pattern. There is something for everyone, including patterns for children and adult sizes up to 5X. The patterns range from beginner to advanced, so you can gain in skill as a crocheter as you gain in skill as a belly dancer!
