Well, here is my news. I've been given the chance to be part of the Crochet Spot team as one of the crochet professionals! Now you can find me there once a week (at least for now) with a new pattern. I have so many ideas. I hope I can pull them off. But, you never know until you try.
For a while now I have been looking for a means of making some money, at least to fund my yarn obsession. I've tried to get an Etsy shop going, and I'm still going to; I'm just getting my ducks in a row. I'm hoping, with a little extra money, I'll be able to get bigger with my projects and branch out a little. I have a number of sweater patterns I want to try but haven't wanted Mum to have to buy the yarn for me. She says its no problem, but I'd feel better if I could pay for my hobbies. Unfortunately, my writing hasn't made it big yet. But be patient, it will. ;)
With St. Patrick's Day and Easter coming up I've been mulling over some seasonal patterns but am not sure just yet what I will do. Any suggestions? As I said in my last post, I am making Twinkie Chan's Jelly Bean Scarf, but whilst making the cute and colorful jelly beans I had an inspiration. What about making a jelly bean blanket. Crochet simple white or cream motifs and sew the jelly beans to the tops in a topsy turvy style! Kids would definitely love this. I might get around to it someday. Never know.
Thanks for reading! I just wanted to shout out my good news. Until next time...
