New Site [09 Apr 2007|10:23pm]
I've moved La Vonne's Knot Just Knits to its own domain.
Here's the link:http://lavonneknotjustknits.com/
The blog: http://lavonneknotjustknits.com/blog

The old sites are still up, but I have duplicated the pages on the new site so everything still looks pretty much the same, eventially I will faze out the older site. Some patterns will be coming down and retired and others going up as time permits. Drop me a line if you come over.

Time for Me [04 Mar 2007|10:55am]
Wow it seems like forever since I put up a pattern on my site. I have been doing work for assorted publications and companies, although I like being busy this way I do miss working on my own site. I love what the independent designers have been doing in the last year, my congratulations to them all.

Josi Hannon Madera and her Art of Crochet site, you go girl! You have that type of mind and I expect nothing less of you. http://www.iamintheloop.com/artofcrochet/index.php

The Crochet Designers of Lulu.com, a force to be reckoned with, I applaud you all:
http://www.lulu.com/group_582
Chris Simon
Kim Guzman aka 'Crochet Kim'
Amy O'Neill Houck
Christi Detlofsen
Drew Emborsky aka 'The Crochet Dude'
Chie O'Briant
Sandy Scofield
Michelle Ryan
Phebe Durand
Lisa Pettipas
Alicia Weber
Kimberly Reichner

Now I know they are many more of you out there that I didn't mention and please don't be upset but feel free to add yours to my comments because I would like to see what you have being doing too. I mentioned the designers that 'I see' all the time. New designers step up too! I've thrown down the glove.

I'm still alive and kicking! [03 Feb 2007|03:28am]
Well Happy New Year all! I know I'm kinda late with it, but I've been busy, busy, busy.

Last year has been spent working on publishing commitments and I have to say waiting for publications to be releases requires a lot more patience than I own.

One of the pieces I did for Plymouth Yarns was a military style jacket, its on their site but I can't see the details from the pic and unfortunately I only took a pic of it on my desk. Here's the link to their pattern:http://www.plymouthyarn.com/index.php?nav=cPatterns.patternGallery&yarn_id=000110&pattern_id=001316

and shot and heres my pic.

New Design on Bookshelves [09 Aug 2006|04:12pm]
Well thanks to my friend Pirko (http://pirkcrochets.blogspot.com/) I just realized that I have a pattern in this publication
http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1402723067/ref=sr_11_1/702-6307596-7772850?ie=UTF8


It certainly looks better on the model in the book.

SnB The Happy Hooker [07 Mar 2006|11:48am]
I decided to wait until the book hit the shelf before I posted this. The first 2 pics were taken by me just for a personal record. All three versions work for me. Let me just say congrats to everyone involved in the book. My daughter is going to enjoy this book, I am going to give her one of the copies. I have yet to read it, I just skimmed through it for now. Just so you know I couldn't wait for my contributors copy to arrive so I went out and bought one. :) It was nice to see 'La Vonne' in the name, publisher usually cut that out. Thanks Debbie! The Short and Sweet design started out like this:

Then it became this:

And finally this:

Happy New Year [15 Jan 2006|08:22pm]
Happy New Year everyone. I have been mega busy, with patterns for books, mags and companies. Did my ususal 3 Xmas craft shows, did very well with it. Taught some workshops in between that too and of course work for my customers and crochet for a designer for her clothing line. When did I sleep you ask? Not too much, glad most of that is over. I had some fun with the spiral scarves sold alot at the shows added a hat to go with them. I'm sure I'm going to get some flack about jumping on the band wagon, but such is life. Here is a pic of one of the hat and scarf sets, not very good pics but you can see how its done.

crochet jewelry [24 Sep 2005|12:25pm]
While looking at a fashion show of Marc Jacobs Fall 2005 ready to wear collection. I saw a model in a black outfit with a large gold chain, this was some serious blingage. I don't usually like such large jewelry but this necklage just had me staring at it. Well guess what it was crocheted chain links. LOL, so you know what I had to do. Here is what I did, I used a spool knitter then chained the finished product, not having much time to sit and crochet the whole thing. BTW, its one piece just maniputlated different ways.

[31 Aug 2005|01:31pm]
O.K so I had to make another one, this time I wanted to see how it would look in a Varigated yarn and how it would look as a cap. So now I know. I like it. I think I may keep this one for myself. Who am I kidding? One of the 4 kids (3 + husband) will take it.
