Crochet Convert.....and a CAL!

I love my Niamh!

Yes, I do crochet! Thank you very much!

Niamh, from Marie Wallin's 

I lengthened it by adding a repeat here and there!

The Ombre shading is so on trend right now!

I made the neckline a bit lower.

and custom fit the body.
 as I wanted a fit that was between sizes. 
(easy to do as this was a basic 5 stitch repeat pattern)

I love it!

Yes, I am a crochet convert! While I will always be a knitter first, I thoroughly enjoyed this foray into crochet....I loved how Niamh is edged with knit rib!

If I can do it, you can too!

So excited about crochet, I suggested to Marie that while some of her fans are knitting their Fair Isle Club 2 blanket....have you seen it?

There are still spots available for this exclusive Club design
......get all the details here Fairisle Club 2.

Maybe we could do a CAL (Crochet a long) with the designs in Winter Crochet! She liked the idea....and agreed that if I handled the admin, she'd provide a prize! So, here are the details!

Disclaimer: I approached Marie with this idea….she is busy designing right now but liked the idea….so if I was willing to do the admin, she was happy to supply a “prize”. I will not be eligible for the draw :)

There is plenty of time to join the CAL! 

While I've finished Niamh, I'm also considering Gael.

How about you? Are you going to get your hooks out and try one of Marie's sophisticated knit/crochet designs?

Happy Crochet!
