Motif-a-Day: Day 10 ~ Svelte

Hey Everyone!

Today I had my 26 week midwife appointment, and all is well with baby Willow and myself! Just a little over a week away is my Glucose test - I'm thrilled...or not ;)

The most fun baby moment I have to report from my appointment was right after my midwife found the baby's heartbeat. Willow kicked her! ha! It seems as though I already have a little trouble maker on my hands.

I've spent the rest of my day working on crocheting and I made another trip to my LYS to pick up some yarn and a new set of knitting needles to finish up a few baby projects over the weekend! I promise, I will have a photo full post on Monday! With the rainy and cloudy icky weather this week I've had to use flash photography for all of my photographs...and it just doesn't have the same quality as sunlight! Hopefully we have some nicer weather this weekend!

And before I announce today's pattern - Starting today on the Crochet Collection facebook page you can vote for the motif you want to see in the first pattern to accompany all of these motifs! You can choose from any pattern I've published since the beginning of the month! I will be putting a photo album of the first 10 designs up on the facebook page and whichever photo has the most likes/comments will be the winner! I think my vote is the Enchanted motif from day 3.

I really do like this motif too, though! It reminds me of the ever illusive Wisconsin Spring. I could see even adding a border around each individual motif and turning it into a throw!

These are all of the colors that I have picked out from Blue Sky Alpacas as well. I love how spring and summer it looks. Anything to get me out of winter right now is so fantastic! I wish the coral color photographed a little better though, it looks very 60's orange right now, but it really is a beautiful more delicate color. Maybe it'll be better next week!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I'd love it if you stopped by the Crochet Collection facebook page and shared what you're working on!

Happy Crocheting!
