Lately I’ve been delving into my old notebooks, rummaging through old ideas and chicken-scratched crochet pattern notes. What a blast! So many weird drawings (I can’t draw!), and ideas that I swore I’d drop everything to work on! I lied to myself. I have years of these notebooks. And so I’ve decided to MAKE the time crochet them this year, to write out the patterns, to share them either on Etsy, on Ravelry, or as a free pattern on my little blog here!
Which means I’ve had to scale back on taking orders, something that I hate to do. But I’m doing it, and having a ball, despite feeling like I’m missing out on opportunities, and yes, feeling guilty for saying no. The NUNchucks are an idea I sketched (rather badly) 2 years ago. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to make them, I think they’re flipping fantastic!!
I still have a few larger scale orders to fill, like some goose hats for Young’s General Store in Wawa, which reopens for the season in May. I also have committed to making some Viking hats to sell at our local high school’s reunion in June. But I plan to continue taking time each week to be creative, to make something new, and to share it here online.
So check in here often, and also on the Facebook Page, the Etsy Shop, and the Ravelry Store. I may even have some stuff up on Deviantart.com soon. (I had a funny critic tell me my stuff belonged there instead of on Ravelry! LOL) I’ll keep you posted. P.S. Love deviantart!
Have a good day! I’m off to work on another project. xoxo
