I loved creating this design and I sold three sweaters before I was even finished crocheting the one I was working on. It’s an easy shell stitch, and it reminded me of the rich green that comes after a long summer of rain, which we had in Pennsylvania last year. It’s a clean, fitted, shape, and I used silky acrylic yarn. I take a lot of heat for using acrylic sometimes, but let’s face it, it’s not cheap to crochet on a daily basis, and I’m a teacher and a maker, not a wealthy suburban housewife 😉 The pattern will be available for sale soon. I’m just getting this website revamped and ready for regular use. I want to share the beautiful image of this creation first though.

Thank you for stopping by! I have been a freelance writer since 1996. My essays and articles have appeared in all kinds of cool places, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine. My prose and poetry has been in Toe Good Poetry and The Feminine Collective. I am the author of two novels, a novella, several short stories, and one nonfiction book on freelance writing. I love vintage books, old movies, crochet (sometimes, knitting), good coffee (especially if it comes from Hava Java Cafe' in Allentown, PA), and writing. I'm always writing, which is how you got here in the first place. You followed my words from some other place to here. Thanks for that! I see characters and plots in true stories and everyday people. I teach English, ESL and crochet and a local community college and online. And if this sounds a little like yourself, make yourself at home here. Share your thoughts and opinions. Your art and your words. Everyone is welcome here, but comments are modified, and if you're a jerk, you're out. View all posts by Tiffani
