My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This is a very open, lacy scarf that I designed to work with self-striping yarns that have a long color repeat, such as the beautiful hand-painted yarns from String Theory Colorworks. It is an intermediate pattern, but only uses a 4 row repeat so would be within reach for a patient advanced beginner.
I named this scarf for my mother, who uses the nickname "lovely Lisa". When I started self-publishing I knew I had to name something for her, and this is it. Thanks, Mom! (Last photo shows Mom & I with her scarf)
Thank you to Susan Moskwa (http://www.rogueedits.com) for her tech editing, String Theory Colorworks for their yarn support (please visit http://www.selfstriping.com), & to my lovely testers, sjregier5, agd509, hobobird, tanyaRC, vibeskat, frogsalad, & Crohooked. As always, I couldn't do it without all of you!
Feel free to make as many of these as you like for local craft fairs/auctions/raffles/bazaars, but please
do not sell finished items online. The pattern itself is not for sale. If making for charity, please let me know the name of the charity & include my contact info with the item.
