Ravelry and some Crocheted Grapes

Picture of crocheted grapesThree blog posts in the space of two weeks! This is a record for Little Conkers!

Firstly I want to let you know that Little Conkers is now on Ravelry! And secondly I have a new pattern to introduce.

I’ve been aware of Ravelry for many years of course, but I avoided joining because I didn’t think I had the time to properly engage on another social media platform. And I don’t like to do anything unless I can do it ‘properly’ – this literally is the story of my life and the reason I have never done many things!

But the little push I needed was the positive and proactive way they have responded to the EU VAT changes (see my blog post on this) that has made me think that being a seller with them would feel more like a partnership than being a seller with Etsy currently does.Find me on Ravelry as LittleConkersUK

So I’m on Ravelry as LittleConkersUK.

It’s going to take a while for me to get the hang of it all, but do say hi if you’re on there!

You will shortly be able to view and download all my crochet patterns there, but it’s just going to take a little while for Ravelry to index them all.

Meanwhile I have another new pattern to introduce – a real milestone this one, as I think it’s a key design in any fruity decoration. Introducing my group of grapes!

Crocheted Grapes

You can download the grape crochet pattern from my Etsy shop as usual.

And you will shortly be able to purchase the grape pattern via Ravelry (you don’t have to be a Ravelry member to do this).

In addition to offering the pattern, I will also add this to the range of fruit available ready-made from my Etsy shop. These are 100% organic as usual, and available in purple, green or the colour of your choice!

Crochet Grapes Pattern

I really do think grapes make the finishing touch to a fruit bowl arrangement, as in this set inspired by a Cath Kidston retro palette:

I may not be able to maintain this white hot level of blogging much longer, but I do hope to post more often in 2015. I think every single blogger on the planet says that at the start of every year!
