Bruges Lace Projects Revealed!

I'm so excited to FINALLY get the Learn Bruges Lace book projects up on Ravelry!  So now, you can go and 'favorite' all your favorites!

Here's the link to the Ravelry page with all the patterns. And here's the link to buy the book. You can also get the book on electronic download through the same link to buy.

There going to be at least three blog book tour stops.  They may or may not be doing giveaways. I'll let you know as the details firm up. On this blog, there may or may not be giveways in the next 3 weeks...  ;)

Let me show you the Bonus Scarf

I called it the "Bonus" Scarf, because I didn't intend to make it for the book.  It wasn't in my proposal, it wasn't part of the plan. I finished all the other projects and felt like I wasn't done yet.  I thought the book needed another project.  I had a few balls of this fantastic Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK. (Gosh, how I love that yarn), and it's in one of my favorite colors, so voila' the Bonus scarf.  I literally finished the book and when I sent in all the projects, I enclosed a note to Connie, my editor, 'Oh, by the way, there's an extra scarf in there if you like it, it's sort of a bonus'.  It's very easy, one long strip is made, then the second long strip is joined to the first as it's made.  Karen Manthey made beautiful symbol diagrams for all the projects in the book. This scarf is already back in my possession and I guarantee I will be wearing it all winter long.
