Projects, patterns, and more!
Hi, how are you all? Still on this wild ride with the rest of us? It’s a crazy world right now, for sure. I’ve decided to call this post May Showcase instead of the usual Round Up. Showcase just sounds so much nicer, so let’s stick with that from now on, yeah?
This month has been FULL of beautiful, scrumptious yarn that I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with. I’ve published a pattern, worked on writing some more patterns, am working on updating an oldie but goodie, and have had so many wonderful things fall off my hook! Let me show you…
I’ve had so much fun putting together this May Showcase for y’all! Above, you can see all the stuff I’ve been working on this month.
This month I crocheted two Baby Yoda dollies, wrote up a pattern and crocheted a bunch of Blooming Hand Towels, and made a bunch of Best Potholders. I completed the second in the Elemental Dragons series, Fire. A beaded cape and a YipYip went out to a sweet customer, and I got to stitch up another Carnival Glass! This one was for a great friend and customer, and in a colorway of Muse that I hadn’t used before, called “Untamed.” Didn’t it turn out so nice?
I also sent off a package to WeCrochet for their Independent Designers Program (IDP) so they could photograph all the items. Don’t you just love a big fluffy package of yarn stuffs?
I released this free pattern on my blog this month, and it has done astoundingly well! But really, who wouldn’t want a little row of join-as-you-go flowers gracing their kitchen? Click the pic to check it out!
This is the BIG DEAL pattern that will be hitting my Ravelry shop in June. My testers have been wonderful and I can’t wait to share it with you. Everyone needs a lace-weight shawlette for the summer! Click the pic to visit my Ravelry shop.
My key-ring Lip Balm Cozy pattern will be the next to get a facelift. Grab it now at $1.99 before I add the stylesheet and spruce up the pics and the update will be FREE! If you wait until after the update goes through, the new price will be $4.99.
Now I want to tell you the most exciting part of this post (well, the most exciting for ME, anyway!)
As of right now, today, I have completed ALL orders, there is no test for WeCrochet in-house, both patterns accepted by Interweave Crochet are complete, and Summer Specials & Customs doesn’t open until next week. It will be open for a whole week, meaning I won’t be working on orders during that time. Then the yarn has to be ordered and will take at least another week to get to me so I can start work.
Do you know what this means?
It means I have THREE WHOLE WEEKS, at the very least, in which I can design patterns, update patterns, make swatches, send in proposals, and just generally enjoy some time playing with yarn. I am thrilled to have this little chunk of time for being creative and following my yarny desires. So far, I have around 10 design ideas that I plan to get down on paper, as well as swatched. I will be updating my lip balm cozy pattern in my Ravelry shop. Today I am even starting a purple-black alpaca/Merino/silk poncho FOR MYSELF! Ahhhh…. this is the life.
