I also need to write my next pattern for Simply Crochet so that I can get it made in any spare minute that may occur over half-term. Half-term = no child care = less time to do anything. Unfortunately my work schedule doesn't really allow for this (again) I will keep the Easter holidays free!
The first design I did for Simply Crochet is in Issue 2 which is in the shops now. Its a lacy poncho that looks impressive but is actually quick and easy to make.

Yesterday I spent another fun morning with the ladies of the Cam City WI at the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens working on our crochet arts project for the Festival of Ideas - yesterday was all about lichen! (yes, it is a strange job at times but lots of fun and a nice challenge) Here is a blog post about our first meeting that explains the project a little.
I am also getting ready to launch my very first (mini) collection as part of the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project. Look out for a post soon on the behind the scenes at the shoot and more details of the patterns.
Until then I shall be head down and crocheting at any chance I get....
