25 days till Christmas Sale

We're at that really exciting time of year again, lots of preparation and gift buying. The start of my Christmas is always marked by Late night shopping in Lynton. On Saturday night all the shops will be open serving mulled wine, there's carol singing, street food, a Father Christmas and lots of sparkly lights. The whole village turns out to celebrate the start of the festive season. So if you are visiting the area on Saturday night, come and join in the celebration. I thought I'd celebrate by holding a "25 days till Christmas" Sale, from now until 26th of December I am running a 25% discount on all my patterns and books. The prices in the WEBSITE SHOP have already been discounted, you can b

Cote de Lynmouth Crochet Blanket

I have just published my new blanket pattern Cote de Lynmouth. Its a sunshine Kaleidoscope blanket and inspired by teenage memories of the South of France. When I was a teenager my parents had a house in a small village called La Croix Valmer in the South of France on the Cote d’Azur. I'd visit every summer and loved it like a second home Now I live on Exmoor, high on a sea cliff overlooking the small seaside village of Lynmouth. There are still hills and sea, but the weather is damp and cold compared to La Croix Valmer, but on a sunny summer’s day when the temperature is hot, the sea is turquoise and the palm trees are gently swaying in the wind, Lynmouth feels like I am back in the South

Ravelry Gift-a-long 2017

I first came across the Ravelry GAL several years ago, at the time I was running The Natural Dye Studio and trying to finish writing my book, so I filed it in the back of my head as something to do later. Last year I completely forgot until it was too late, this year I have been stalking the GAL group waiting until sign up time, so I'm delighted that I finally get to take part as one of the GAL designers. You may ask what is the Gift-a-long? Its a 6 week long KAL/CAL made from selected patterns designed by indie designers. The GAL held the 21st of November to 31st of December 2017, as well as the KAL/CAL's, there are lots of prizes and games. The Official Ravelry group is here - Indie Design

Getting there

I am delighted with my new site/blog. I haven't had a website I could properly play with for a long time. It's still got a very long way to go, but the basics are in place. I've even got a new SHOP as you can see I only have 1 product, but there are more to come :-) So much more work to do, but at the moment I have something else that I need to concentrate on. I am one of the designers taking part in the Ravelry GAL that starts in a couple of days, so I need to do lots of promotion. So watch this space as I've got lots of details to tell you, I just need to edit some photo's first and stop playing with the website!! #amandaperkins #crochetblankets #crochet #ravelryGAL

New Beginning

Thanks to the complete lack of customer support from Google Blogger I have been forced to start a new blog and this is it. My old blog is still on-line so you are still able to read all my old posts. You can find it here - So please be patient with me as I rebuild my entire website. #crochet #amandaperkins #crochetblankets
