Hi. It's been a while. I didn't expect to take so long between newsletters. With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that we lost Shadow cat suddenly in late November. Between that new grief and the new variant surge, sending a newsletter didn't seem important at all.
We're getting more used to our (newest) new normal. Dot now often curls up on my lap, and lets me work on small projects.
I'm thrilled to announce the release of a new crochet design, Strataterra. This design is a one skein (and one size) pattern that begins with a magic loop. I designed it for the lovely ombre color series by Artyarns. The sample is crocheted in their sport-weight cashmere blend, Merino Cloud.
It measures 44 in/111.75 cm long by 28 in/71 cm deep and is asymmetrical. I'll be honest, I struggled with this design for nearly two years. I wanted a one-skein shawl that showcased the ombre hand-painted yarn. I'm thrilled by the result.
In case you missed it, I have two other recent releases: the crocheted Cirrostratus Cowl and the knit Temperate Disruptions Cowl.
As with all my newer patterns, they're available at my site as well as through Lovecrafts, Payhip, and Ravelry. If you purchase at little acorn creations, you will receive a link to add it to your Ravelry library if desired.
