“Wraps for All Seasons” Blog Tour – Stop #6

Hi everyone. My book “Wraps for All Seasons” has been on a blog tour. We will be making 6 stops for this tour. Today is our last stop. Each of the bloggers will be giving away a copy of the book, so be sure to visit them to see what they have to share with you about my book.

Stop #6 is with the talented Lorene Eppolite of Cre8tion Crochet. Lorene and I met in October 2013 at the Knit & Crochet Show and have stayed in touch over the years since. Last time I saw her was in Charleston this summer at the Knit & Crochet Show again. We had a lot of fun goofing off in the evenings. Lorene has a busy website where she posts lots of patterns and reviews.

Patterns like this lovely slightly asymmetrical shawl. It is the “Napa Valley Shawl”. I really like the colors she used for her sample in the photos, but could see it made in any combination of favorite colors. Simple stitch work for the body with a lacy and intriguing border.

And if texture is what you love, check out the gorgeous “Braided and Broken Wrap”. Simple construction for a sophisticated look. I could see this worked up in a deep purple or silvery gray to become a staple item in my cool weather wardrobe. Hop on over to Lorene’s site to check out all her other patterns and to enter her drawing for a copy of my book.

  1. I have a question. Do you have stitch diagrams of the wraps in the Wraps for all Seasons? I am on my second pattern, Frosty Mornings Crescent Shawl, and I am having a little difficulty reading it due to eye issues. I seem to have an easier time if I have a diagram with the written pattern for some things I crochet. I do love your patterns.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Lorraine, Unfortunately I do not have stitch diagrams for those wraps. Annie’s owns those patterns now, so I can’t create stitch diagrams for them. You might want to contact Annie’s to let them know that you like having that option with patterns.

      I do understand having difficulty reading the text of the patterns. One thing that might help you with the eye issues is to do enlarged photo-copies of the text of the patterns. I also use a magnifying ruler, it has a wide enough magnifying line that lays over the text one line at a time. I hope this helps you.

      Thanks for your kind words about my patterns.

      • Thank you for the guidance and I am going to give the enlarged photo-copies a try.

        Lorraine
