International Cat Day

simple cat amigurumi

Today is a day to celebrate our feline friends. Cat owners know what beautiful creatures they are. Some are loving, some are aloof, some are silly. Although they sometimes have a bad reputation, studies  have shown that having a cat can help to lower stress, anxiety and even depression.  Cats can be entertaining as well as beneficial to your health. Today I have a collection of cat patterns to crochet and machine knit.

Last Day of Summer Exclusives Bundle

Last Chance to grab your Discount!  

I can’t believe today is the last day of the Summer Exclusives event! Time really does fly when  you’re having fun!  Did you manage to get your hands on all the discounted patterns you wanted?  If not, don’t worry, today is the last day that you can purchase all 30 crochet patterns that have  been released during the event for the low price of $14.95. https://myfingersfly–cosyrosieuk.thrivecart.com/summer-exclusives-bundle/

The price increases to $18 at midnight tonight (GMT), so don’t delay if you want to grab your  bargain!  

Plus, some of the patterns will no longer be included in the post event version of the bundle!  Don’t worry, there will still be a total of 30 amazing patterns, but there will be some tweaks.  

It’s been wonderful seeing so many photos of the completed projects that people are sharing!  I’ve already seen some people who have completed two or three different projects!  

If you’re sat there thinking, Do I really need 30 crochet patterns?  With over 30 crochet patterns included in the Summer Exclusives Collection available at just  $14.95, each pattern costs less than $0.50!! What a saving!  

The average full cost of a crochet pattern is $4.00 so you’d only need to use 5 of the 30 different  crochet patterns included in the collection to save some serious money!  

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FULL COLLECTION https://myfingersfly–cosyrosieuk.thrivecart.com/summer-exclusives-bundle/

There are so many different Summer inspired crochet patterns! Whether you’re a gift maker or  just making for yourself, you’ll find something for everyone!  There are summer tops, blankets and wall hangings, handbags and much more! 

I still can’t get over my excitement that my own design, Rainbow Nap Buddy, is also included! Yep – you can get a copy of my pattern for less than $0.50!! 

Time really is running out as the bundle is only available at the unbelievably low price of $14.95 until midnight tonight! (GMT) when the price increases to $18!  

 

 

Today’s featured designs are Desert Cacti Zipper Pouch from Raffamusa Designs and Ocean Beaches Cotton Top from Crochets & Twists.

Zoo Blog Hop Day 27 – Platypus

platypus crochet pattern
It’s unofficial Platypus celebration day at Ruth Haydock Designs. Pam the Playtpus loves sunny days and blue skys. She also loves to swim in calm rivers and won’t touch the sea.
Pam is a really quick crochet pattern made with small amounts of yarn.  As she’s Australian, her blue top is actually a “rashie,” a rashie is a top for sun protection so she can continue to spend lots of time outdoors. Isn’t she adorable!
