Sorry to have been AWOL for so long, but I used the government shutdown to stay away from the computer. I have discovered that staring at a computer screen and staring at a crochet project seem to have different effects on my eyes, the latter being so much more preferable! And, a lot of crocheting I did! Here's my latest project -- Humpty Dumpty in Crochet.
The pattern is now available in my Ravelry store at this link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/humpty-dumpty-in-crochet, and if you purchase before October 31st, he's 20% off with this Ravelry coupon code: Humpty2013
Now, you might be asking, why Humpty Dumpty? Well, here's an example of how a crochet designer can get inspiration from just about anywhere. I have family who lives in Bethesda, MD. So, when I go to visit, I often cut across Connecticut Avenue to Wisconsin Avenue by going down Bradley Boulevard. One day there was a bit of a back up, so as I was sitting there, I looked over and at the end of a house's driveway was a little stone Humpty Dumpty sitting on the retaining wall. He really brought back memories of the children's nursery rhyme, and I did a little Wikipedia research to find out more. Anyway, he got my creative juices flowing, and this is the result!
