New on the Rows and Roses YouTube channel is a replay of my LIVE unboxing of the June KnitCrate!
This was my first-ever KnitCrate and I have been waiting on it for so long. First their supplies were taking a long time to get to them (Covid-19 is so far reaching right now) and then the USPS thought they might hold onto my package for a bit. But it finally came!
Come check out the gorgeously squishy, hand-dyed summer yarn, as well as the fun extra, and be sure to snag your first box for only $5! Use my affiliate link and treat yourself in July.
Check it out, y’all! I posted a brand new FREE pattern on the blog, Summer Silk kerchief. Wrap your head in liquid luxury with this silk kerchief. Crocheted using a single skein of Luminance, two strands held double, Summer Silk head scarf will be your best friend all summer long.
**BIG PATTERN SALE**
For the entire month of July, use code FourthPromo to take a fourth (25%) off of all patterns in my Ravelry shop!
Our July CAL is very special. We are having a “red shawl” crochet-along to celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote! Susan B. Anthony was known for her red shawls, and we are going to honor her.
For this CAL you may choose any shawl you want to crochet (or knit!) as long as you make it in a red (or pink, purple, or orange) yarn. We do love variety around here. My new Tilted shawlette would be perfect for this! Please come join us.
For our June CAL in the Ravelry group, we decided to do a month of catching up and finishing WIPs. The crocheter with the most R&R projects finished at the end of the month would be the winner, and right now, we have a tie! So I’m guessing we’ll either have a tie-breaker, or maybe I’ll just gift them both a free pattern 🙂
Next up for an update is my Nicole’s Faux Cable Cowl pattern. Right now, you can get the pattern for $1.99, and if you get it before the update, then the update will be free once it goes through. If you wait until after the pattern is updated, the new price will be $4.99. The update will include the new Rows and Roses pattern stylesheet, more and better information on gauge, yardage, etc., and better pictures. Grab this pattern now before the price goes up!
Last month, I updated my Key-ring Lip Balm Cozy pattern. This one was done so long ago, and while the pattern was already free of errors and the finished product was great, the way the pattern itself looked and was written just was not a good representation of R&R. I sure do hope you love the newer version as much as I do, and as much as my testers! I am trying very hard to get all of my older (and less polished) patterns updated this year, and I really appreciate your patience ♥
WeCrochet invited Rows & Roses to their show "Coffee and Crochet" and it was AWESOME!
If you didn’t get to join us for WeCrochet’s “Coffee and Crochet” show on May 19, you missed a super fun time! That week’s episode featured ME! Sati, of Rows and Roses. I am thrilled to have been asked by my friends at WeC to guest star on that episode. We talked about the origins of R&R, my tips and tricks for starting and working a business from home, my favorite WeC yarns and notions, and I even did some show and tell for what I’ve been working on and what plans I have for the coming months.
Check out the replay! Click the pic above to be taken to the facebook LIVE replay, and give it a like and share!
Welcome, yarn and fiber enthusiast! I am so excited to have you visit. Sati here, and I’m completely, ridiculously, emphatically in love with yarn. And fiber. Also sheep, alpacas, cotton plants OMG, and flax, which is where linen comes from, in case you didn’t know. You’ll learn a lot about this stuff whether you want to or not if you hang out with me.
Let me give you a quick rundown of the website: “Happenings” is the blog. Info, free patterns, and community can be found here. “Shop” is where you can shop all the currently in-stock and pre-order yumminess. “Talk to Me!” is the contact form. Use it for anything, from questions, to suggestions, to bug reports, to just saying hey.
Here’s my story:
My journey started out in 2010 crocheting woolies for my baby girl (who is now 9. HOW???) I was excited to learn how to crochet, and posted pics on facebook of my finished items. Once I started sharing info, people started asking how much it would cost for me to make them something “like that” every time I would post something new. Then I entered a whirlwind that went something like this…
Facebook page ** Commissions ** Hyenacart ** Facebook group ** Processed my first fleece ** Started spinning yarn ** Learned to dye yarn ** Discovered knitting ** Started writing patterns ** Began teaching classes ** Became independent contractor for WeCrochet testing patterns and crocheting samples ** …and I just bought a rigid heddle loom, so I’m weaving no
Are you tired? I’m tired.
So now what? Build a website and put together a newsletter, of course! Are you a yarn and fiber enthusiast? Did you sign up for the newsletter?
