Janie's Friday Feature - June
Welcome to this week's Friday Feature Newsletter - the Janie Crow equivalent of a Sunday supplement magazine....
I hope this email finds you all well and that those of you in the UK are not struggling too much with this terrible wet weather. We now have a pond in the back garden where the lawn used to be and I wouldn't be at all surprised to arrive home and find a couple of ducks paddling around! Hopefully some calmer weather is on the way and things will start to dry out over the next couple of days. Fingers crossed!
I love the summer and usually adore the month of June with it's long days and light evenings. The recent weather has meant there have been no evening meals in the garden or even a cheeky coffee out there in the morning before we come in to the studio, but it has at least meant that there has been a little extra time for crocheting on the sofa - something I never tire of doing! I am working on a scarf/shawl version of my Magic Circles design using Eden Cottage's Milburn DK. It is coming up a real treat. I have put a sneaky peak image below, but as soon as I have it completed I will show you some in more detail and will update the pattern accordingly.
This week I have been looking at the summer time fashion trends. Crochet features quite heavily in beach fashion trends and this has led me to question the ethics of buying hand made crochet items, so I have written a quick article about this, which you will find lower down. I have also introduced a new feature entitled 'Discovery of the Month', which will focus on ethical 'everyday' items, as well as knit and crochet related things that I have found over the month. This newsletter also features some information on my upcoming Crochet Along project that starts is July and some news of an imminent new pattern release, so I hope that you are able to spend a few minutes in my company ahead of your fabulous weekend.....
