Well I know I mostly crochet but I couldn’t help laughing at this post….Knitting Humor Gave me a great start to the day :D…..Now off to get the rest of the kids to school and then grocery shopping!
Well it’s been cooling down here in Brisbane lately and I noticed while watching one of my sons soccer games that I was getting quite a chill around my neck and ears, so it was tie to pull out the crochet hooks and start something new. This is a good thing because I have been having trouble settling into making something after finishing up my E-book which is still $5.00 off for another few days :)…..Anyway I have some beautiful Cascade Heritage Silk which is a blend of 85% merino and 15% silk, I love this stuff, it comes in some gorgeous colour….I wish I could have bought them all! I’ve been contemplating what to do with it for a couple of months now, I started a couple of things but ripped them out because I wasn’t quite happy with them but now I have started and almost completed my latest design…..SNEAK PEEK….
I also received a package I purchased on Ebay a few weeks ago, it was just some cheapy aluminium crochet hooks in a case…and I love them, I don’t know what it is about these cheap hooks but I have yet to find any that I like using more…easily pleased I guess :). It’s great having a case too rather than fishing around in the bottom of my pencil case trying to find the right size!
I have still been adding patterns to my Etsy shop which is a bigger job that I thought since when I lost my hard drive I also lost all the latest copies of my patterns. I’ve been slowly downloading them all from Ravelry and saving them to my computer….now I just have to work out how to change the pdf’s back into word documents and I’ll be happy, I haven’t found anything that works yet so I think I’m going to be copying and pasting from the pdf’s into word…but I’m managing to procrastinate on that one :D
Well that’s enough rambling for now…have a great week!
Well I am finally done, my E-book is published and available. It’s now on Ravelry and Etsy so pop on over and take a look I would love it if you did! I has 10 of the cuff patterns that I have been working on lately, all tested and tech edited. Some of them can be seen in the photos above. It’s $18.00 for all 10 patterns, that’s only $1.80 a pattern, they are $2.50 a pattern if you buy them as single patterns…….and to top it all off if you are reading this you can go to my Ravelry store and get another $5.00 off buy using the coupon code….”Wow it’s here” this will last for the next 2 weeks from the 20th of May to the 3rd of June (Australian time).
Well I have conducted a draw in my kitchen this morning…it was really technical, I used one of the mixing bowls and little slips of paper and then my daughter drew out a name!!!
Congratulations Mandasiefert39…you have won a free pattern from me. If you would like to visit my Ravelry Store or my Etsy shop you can make a choice and let me know what you would like. Then let me know how you want it, I can email you or have it gifted to you on Ravelry if you have a Ravellry account :)
Ok well, I’m looking for ideas…..what sort of crochet designs are people looking for? Do you have something specific that you’d like to see out there….here is your chance to say. I’m not promising anything mind but I’d really like to know so there is a random draw for a free pattern from my store ….anyone who comments here will be place in the draw for a chance.
I would love it if you would comment on my facebook page as I have just started it and really need some traffic but feel free to comment here if you would rather, you will still be entered into the random draw.
At the moment I just design what I feel like but it will be interesting to know what other people like. I was looking at this post and thought that is sounds like I have no ideas but I really do have more ideas than I can make I’m just really interested in what other people like.
Well I guess it’s time to revive this blog…we all start with the best intentions that sometimes go by the wayside when life gets involved :)…….I lost my computer so didn’t have access to the internet for a little while and once I did my blog ‘mojo’ was missing…lol
During this time off though I have been busy writing an E-book….hopefully to be released shortly, I only have 3 patterns left to write and one cuff to finish crocheting. I have uploaded a couple of single cuff patterns to my Ravelry store …Here are some photos…
I’ve also opened a new Etsy shop now that they are offering instant downloads for pdf files……I have sold a couple of patterns so we will see how it goes.
Along with all of this I now have a facebook page for my designs! I would love it if you would pop over and ‘like’ me……I think that’s what you do :)……if you want to leave a comment on the page I will put you in a draw for a free pattern of your choice from one of my shops…or I can even email it to you if you want.
Have a great weekend everyone.
