Reworking the lego hat into different sizes. Curly Simon free pattern. Testing my other patterns. I am working as fast as I… Continue reading Curly Simon
I've been having too much fun making monsters. They are multiplying faster than I have room for. Meet Frank Cyclopstra. He'll sing a song and get into trouble. Warning, he'll always have his eye on you. The pattern is being tested, but the plush is available on Etsy.
I am reconfiguring the blog. I am adding an available patterns page which should consolidate all the patterns free and for sale in one place. I am using Craftsy for the store. I am so glad I started using Craftsy. It is a great resource to learn new things (I am thinking cake decorating for… Continue reading Adding a Pattern Page and Plushy store
I appear to be on a monster kick. I think I like them because they can be whatever is in my head. If it doesn't turn out exactly like my sketch, it is no big deal because hey it's a monster.

How fun is the new color of the year. I love purple. Now I have an excuse to use more purple. I will try to add more into my designs.
It's 2014. I think I finally have figured out the balance of work, kids and crochet. At least I hope so. I'm still finishing a few Christmas presents that did not get completed in time. I blame Michaels for being out of the yarn. Also the book I was a contributor for should be released… Continue reading Happy New Year
I love seeing what people come up with when it comes to yarn bombing. I decided I needed to join the trend. My front porch has a metal railing with round ball tops. Perfect for hats! I've started, but this may be a project I add to every year. I think it will be over… Continue reading Yarn Bombing Myself
