Did I mention my Consultant Mr Savva earlier? Yes I think he did. Well I remember the first time I went to see him at the Hospital in Dorchester. I was wearing a pair of my Crochet Socks which he admired. These socks were mentioned again just before the anesthetist had her wicked way with her syringe, but as I didn't see Mr Savva again, the conversation went no further apart from the fact that he had a smile on his face when he said he's like a pair.
So this morning I phoned his secretary, asked for his shoe size & preferred colour.
She phoned me back with the required information so I am now being taken to the Wool Shop by my friend Nicky to purchase the necessary.
Isn't she so sweet - she wanted to buy me some flowers to say "Get Better Soon" & she bought me these flowery tins with lots of flowers on them!
They are lovely
So very pretty
They will look lovely in my Crochet Classroom
Now for the Sock Yarn
He said his favourite colour was bottle green
But as hard as I tried I couldn't find bottle green sock yarn, so I opted for this lovely variegated option instead
Greens & Greys
I can't wait to get started on them but first I have to make a tension swatch as the pattern I like says "3 LIGHT" and my sock wool is 4ply!!
I best get my hook out quick as the wool for my next commission will arrive any day now!
I have also been asked to Crochet a Bikini for a lady in the Caribbean!!
GOSH - busy me!
The square for 211 is complete but I haven't taken a picture of it,
OK I lied, I have
I would like to share some more Crochet World news with your from
Yes the Crochet Liberation Front are having a little "makeover"
Here's the news:
The CLF Member Service really needed to mature, we’ve grown a lot in the past 20 months so it was time to get a home that was more fitting to our member needs. We’re still going to have call ins and special workshops, in fact Harrison Richards of Furls Crochet is teaching a special workshop on how to start (or grow) a profitable creative business for under $200. He’s sharing the secrets of how he took a small Etsy shop with limited sales and turned his business into a worldwide brand! Super exciting You can check out that link here: http://www.clfmember.crochetliberationfront.com/sp/21857-grow-your-craft-business
The Crochet Liberation Front will remain my blog and a professional directory of crochet awesome. We’re moving existing members over this week and I’m moving content over as well. We have a forum for people to ask questions and leave comments about the classes and posts in the member area, which will keep things ship shape and super organized. The best of all I can host LOADS of audio and video programs in the member site and keep the information secure and members only. I really honor my members and if they are going to make the effort to invest in themselves I like to make sure their investment is worth while!
Our soft launch will continue through August and once we have the bulk of member content shifted over and some really awesome new stuff up we’ll do a big celebration!
Do take a look - this is invaluable if you want to be serious about your Crafty Business!
FOOT OP NEWS
Now before you scroll down the page....
I am *warning* you that there is a picture of my ankle scar
So don't look if you don't want too
It's about 6 inches long
It's terribly neat
I think my Consultant Mr Savva must have gone to sewing Classes
There is no blood and gore
I just looks like someone has drawn a red line down the lower part of my leg.
