It’s hard for me to believe that I have been writing and releasing my patterns to the public now for almost a year! I have come a long way this past year. My total number of patterns released so far is 103 with more on the way. I have been so blessed to be surrounded by great creative people and some amazing mentors!
I still occasionally do custom orders but my LOVE is designing. I am happiest with a hook and yarn in hand and an original design on the hook.
It’s my privilege to once again introduce y’all to one of my testers: Jess of DiPaul’s Designs! I “met” Jess on my business page when she applied to be a tester for me. A mutual love of The Doctor drew us together and quickly made us friends! I feel like I know her even though we have never met “in real life”.
I’m kinda slow this week! I just realized that with the release of my Swirling Leaves Fingerless Gloves I am now at 100 released patterns. That is just amazing to me.
I started releasing my designs in March of last year and continue to be overwhelmed with how much I have been able to accomplish in a relatively short time. I have several more designs in the works and can’t wait to share them with y’all. Also, stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon for next month!
I love Christmas; SO, I decided to do a roundup of some of my favorite free and paid Christmas patterns! There are so many that I like that I had to stop myself after a while and decide which were my absolute favorites.
All pictures belong to the designers listed.
Life has been super crazy for me, and I have neglected this little corner of my world. There have been many exciting things going on, and I have several new patterns in my pattern stores.
One of my recent favorites is the Sugar Pumpkin patterns that my testers are working on the coordinating items for this hat which is already for sale in my Ravelry and Craftsy stores. The inspiration for these items were the little candy corn pumpkins which is where the sugar pumpkin name came from.
A few months ago, I saw a lovely knit hat on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I don’t knit, but it did get me to thinking. I started thinking that I could recreate it in crochet. Once I started working on it, my brain went into overdrive and started coming up with a whole line of items incorporating the spiral.
And that is what inspired the Nautilus pattern line. I released the headband/earwarmer last week.
