As you all know, I am immensely proud of my book and all those who worked so hard to make it a reality. And, despite editing, pattern checking and checking again, it seems that somewhere along the line little phrases or terms might have found their way back into a pattern, or been omitted altogether. Rather than bury my head in the sand or weep into my pillow, I thought I'd start a category on my blog with the 'fixes'. If you're looking for a 'fix' just search 'pattern updates' and all the relevant blog entries will be at your fingertips. I'm hoping it's not going to be an exhaustive list, so far only two, but do let me know if you stumble across something, it might just need explaining, but it might need a fix - I'm always happy to look at it.
The ones we've got so far are:
Turquoise flower (thanks to Sibylle in Germany)
Round 5 * 1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 1 dtr, 1 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc all into next tr, ss into next tr *, repeat from * to *, ending ss into same place as ss at end of last round. Fasten off.
Lacy Scarf (thanks to Liz in Dorset)
Row 1 3 ch, * 2tr, work 2 tr, 1 ch, 2 tr into each of next two 1-ch spaces....
Row 2 3 ch, * 2tr, work 2 tr, 1 ch, 2 tr into each of next two 1-ch spaces....
Just ignore the '2 tr' at the beginning of each row. When I first wrote the pattern I said to work the 2 tr, 1 ch, 2 tr into the 1-ch space between the first 2 tr, which is where this extra 2 tr comes from! As my patterns were edited and refined, my flowery style condensed, most of my superfluous crochet speak disappeared, but on this occasion an extra 2 tr snuck back in! Row 4 is spot on.
I do hope those of you who have the book already are enjoying it. I would love to see some photos of projects in progress, or dare I say, finished! I've set up a flickr album for your photos - I love sharing ideas and it would be great to see your interpretations of my projects, different yarns, fabrics etc, so let me know if you've got a project to upload and I'll send you an invite to the group ;-) xxx
ps. just spotted a gorgeous purple shelf trim on Flaming Nora's blog, together with great mention of the lovely Lola Nova's 'Simple Sewing' book.
