Hello lovely peeps, how have you been?

All is good here at Made with Loops HQ and today I want to introduce you to a brand new crochet book written by the talented Tanya Eberhardt and published by the lovely people at Tuva Publishing. You might know Tanya from her inspirational blog at Little Things Blogged . A blog full of inspiration, free patterns and lovely stories featuring crochet, I can highly recommend for you to pop over and have a little parusel.

Tanya has just written a beautiful crochet book called Home Decoration in Crochet and she has asked me to be part of her blog-tour…so exciting! Every day a different blogger/instagrammer will introduce and showcase the patterns featured in the book, so when mine arrived last week I couldn’t wait to get started.

I decided to make the beautiful Granny Square Cushion and after trying a few different cotton yarns I settled for one of my favourites: Vinnis Colours Nikkim, a lovely soft 100% cotton yarn from South Africa.

Well written and charted instruction made it very easy and pleasurable working up this pattern and before too long I had finished. There are twenty five colourful designs in the book, all promising to brighten up your home and Tanya is giving away a copy of the book over on her blog. Why not pop over for a chance to win!

My cushion now has pride of place on my bed and I am totally in love with it.

Hope you like it too!

dear diary,

You know how much I like a challenge! An idea that has been in my head for a while, to publish a series of books offering a selection of small designs, is finally coming to fruition. I thought long and hard about how best to publish, in print or on-line, but as I am a great believer in simple solutions I have decided to go the on-line route first…

…and so it is that I can announce with greatest pleasure, that the first book in the Lola Loops series is being launched on Wednesday 7th November 2012 at noon UK time. It will be available to download on this website and on Ravelry from that day.

I am quietly excited about sharing Lola’s knitting adventures with you and hope you will like the things she has been making as much as I do. To make the launch a little more exciting I am giving away an extra pattern design to the first five people who purchase the book from this website. Watch out for the next post tomorrow when I will explain how it works 🙂
