April Fool's Day
I need to get something off of my chest that's been brewing for about a week. I've debated about posting anything because I don't want to offend or come across as being judgmental. Saturday is April Fool's Day, and I am not looking forward to it. Normally, ...

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.
Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you
alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I
have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of
them until this hat pattern came to fruition. After th...

Lion Heart Blanket.
I think every
time I post a new blanket pattern I say it’s my new favorite. Truthfully, I don’t
have just one favorite. I love blankets that have beautiful colors and lots of
texture. I love, love,
love Attic 24’s Cosy Stripes Blanket. I posted about a coup...

Project Adelaide.
no secret that the past few months have been rough. I haven’t really quite
known what to do with myself. Dealing with the loss we’ve had is the most
difficult thing I have ever had to deal with. That being said, each day is a
little better and a little...

My New Favorite Blanket
summer as I was starting to plan my Christmas projects, I had the idea to
start a list of all the blankets I wanted to make. I am constantly looking at
beautiful patterns on Pinterest and on different crochet groups, but I never
did much outside my com...

Cozy Delight Moss Stitch Blanket (Free Pattern)
mid-November, I decided to make a trip to Michael’s. I knew they were having a
big yarn sale, and I needed to pick up a skein of Caron Cakes to make my mom’s
birthday present. I
stopped at the end of a wall of yarn to look at yarn to make William a hat f...

Purpose in the Pain.
Source I
sit here wondering how in the world to begin. I’ve put off writing this for
nearly four weeks. I know right away wasn’t the right time. I know there is a
time of grieving. I also know that this is something I’m never going to be
completely over. No...
