Improvimg my Crochet Skills

May is a great month for crochet for a couple of reasons. First...
Vogue Crochet 2012 Fashion Preview will hit the magazine stands on May 8th and all I can say is "Wow"!

These are just a few of the patterns included in the magazine that I would love to try and would definitely be challenging my current skills...


Since I haven't ever made any garments that I could wear I would like to learn how to make sweaters or anything with sleeves. 
 
Now this is a sweater I would love to make...

More news for May...DROPS Super sale from May 1st to May 31st!

They have some gorgeous sweaters that I would love to make...

  2. So many fun things to make and so little time. I am still working on my vest so no more clothing items for me until that is done. Hugs to you,

  3. Those sweaters look amazing. I hope you get the chance to make them. Especially the second last one. It's very pretty.

  4. Definitely sweaters! I think sweaters have to be the 'big project' fear that some people still want to tackle- that's what I'm hoping to do this year :)

  5. So that's why I've been seeing so many of their patterns listed on Ravelry lately! I went to their website to have a look at their free patterns, but I couldn't get signed in. They must have been having problems this morning. I saw a few things of theirs on Ravelry that might be fun to try. I'll have to look for the mag when it comes out.
