I blogged here about my first bits of exciting news - and this time next week I will be at Event City, Manchester with the Woman's Weekly team, teaching crochet. I can't wait. I'm excited, but just a little nervous as teaching 30 people to crochet in just one hour is quite an undertaking!!! Wish me luck!!!! Michaela Strachan is opening the show - I remember her more from the Hit Man and Her in my Youth, but enjoying watching her on the various nature programmes she now hosts.
And now I have some more exciting news to share. I've just signed another book deal with Search Press for one of their 20 To Make Series. I'm really excited as the content will be colourful and fun to make and I'll share more with you once deadlines and full content have been agreed. I love their 20 To Make Series and have a nice little collection up in The Woolnest. I have a feeling that mine will be very popular. One of my current favourites is Sue Stratford's mini Christmas knits.
Talking of books, I was delighted to see these little characters pop up on facebook - made by a teacher for her class. Aren't they so very cute. I love it when people share their photos, as I often a worry that when other people make my designs, they won't turn out the same and they may feel disappointed. Afterall, we all crochet and knit ever so slightly differently, don't we. But these are perfect, phew!!
Other great news is that I have a interview in the current issue of Crochet Gifts Magazine. It falls across 2 pages and is followed by Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, also from my crochet book "Once Upon a Time in Crochet".
You can buy my book here from Amazon. Sometimes it goes on offer for £6.99 which is a great price. It currently has 10 reviews and all are positive, which is fantastic.
I have a little bit more news to share with you, but I'll save that for another day.
Have fun making and crafting, Lynne
