Hello! I’m so glad that you’re here. :-)
I want to begin by saying thank you for visiting! I hope that you find my blog to be a great source for fun crochet and knitting patterns, and creative inspiration. Being creative, in any way, is incredibly rewarding and just feels good. Even if you aren’t the creative type now, I hope that you will be after looking around my blog for a little bit.
For me, creativity and crafting has been a part of my life for about as long as I can remember. As a child, I remember constantly wanting to do something artistic and I am still that way, to this day.
In 2000, a friend taught me to crochet, and then I taught myself to knit. I always seemed to be searching for a very specific sort of design or project but was rarely ever able to find exactly what I was looking for. Because of that, I began designing my own patterns and projects. Designing, and writing patterns, seemed almost second nature to me and before I knew it, I was spending all of my real free time doing that.
After about 10 years of designing, I finally decided to open my Etsy shop so that I could begin sharing my crochet patterns and knitting patterns. I grew an incredible following there and that led me to create my own website, and this blog. :-)
I’ve organized my blog in a way that, I hope, is easy to navigate and make your way around. Some of the most popular places to visit here are:
Free Crochet Patterns Page — My ever growing collection of free crochet patterns! Feel free to make these projects for yourself, as gifts to give away, or even to sell in an Etsy shop, or on a website, as finished items.
Free Knitting Patterns Page — My ever growing collection of free knitting patterns! Also feel free to do the same things that you can with the Free Crochet Patterns.
Hat Sizing Guide — This hat sizing guide was made as an effort to create a go-to guide for anyone who enjoys making hats, whether they make them for themselves, or as finished items to sell.
Supplies — The supplies page is a collection of some of my absolute favorite things to work with, in regards to crochet and knitting! And, the prices of these supplies are FANTASTIC! Better than anywhere else that I’ve seen. :-)
Crochet Stitches — The Crochet Stitches page was also made in an effort to provide an easy go-to place for my followers, whenever they are not sure about a certain stitch. It includes even the most basic ones so that even absolute beginners can use it when needed.
I hope that you find these resources useful!
When I am not doing something work-related, I really enjoy spending time with my husband and two girls. We like to go on bike rides, watch movies, and spend time with friends and family.
If you ever have any questions, whether they are about any of my patterns (free, or from my shops), any techniques or how to do something, just email me and I’ll be happy to help! I’m here to answer any questions, anytime.
Are you interested in opening an Etsy shop, or creating your own website, where you can sell your finished crochet and knitted items? I’m happy to answer some of those questions too! If you need some super detailed, in-depth assistance with that, I also offer Etsy Shop Consulting! Just contact me for more details, and for a price list of the different packages. :-)
If you’d like to be kept up-to-date on any new patterns that I add, or tips, specials, and giveaways–please take a minute to sign up to receive those emails! I promise not to bombard you with 50 emails every week. I usually only send about 1 email per week, maybe two if I have something special going on. There is a quick sign up form, at the bottom of this page, that will take care of that for you. And, you’ll get an Elegant Baby Hat Crochet Pattern for free, to boot!
Thank you for taking the time to read about me, and for visiting my site. I truly hope that you find some projects and information that are fun and useful for you. Have fun being creative!!
