Time goes by so fast! Sometimes I think things drag on, but when I really sit down and think about the things that have changed over the years I’m really surprised with how different my life is!
2 years ago:
Husby and I had been married for 6 months
Neither of us had great jobs
I was panicking because neither of us had great jobs
We had no idea what to do with our lives
I am so proud of him! He’s going to be such a great teacher!
Camilla and CioCo Photography, one of my favorite photographers, and a great friend, is having a HUGE giveaway over on her blog! She’s giving away some awesome photo packages, and some other great stuff as well!
Grand prize includes your choice of the pink or red sock monkey hat from me (or $28 worth of patterns if you’d rather), and the 1st runner up will receive a $10 gift certificate from me towards either patterns or hats, as well as a Mini Photo Session from CioCo!
She took the photo of my sock monkey hats above. I also had her take pictures of my husband and I this fall, and she did awesome!
I mentioned a bit ago that I’m going to try and write at least 2 patterns a month throughout 2012.
Of course, as soon as I said that I went in to a creative funk! I have a whole list of patterns to write, I just can’t bring myself to get started on them!
How do I get out of this funk!?
I spent a couple of hours in our second bedroom/crochet room organizing everything for the spring! When things finally got organized, this was the awesomeness that happened!
I LOVE this part of my apartment!!
I know everyone makes New Years resolutions and then breaks them by February, but I really think mine is attainable this year!
I want to publish a minimum of 24 new patterns in 2012!
That’s only 2 per month, so it’s really not so many. In fact, I’m off to a good start, I got 2 published in the last 48 hours! True, I started them in 2011, but I’m counting it anyway.
So, now available in my Etsy shop you have-
The Puppy Dog Hat Pattern:
And the Marvin the Monkey Hat Pattern:
Have an idea for a pattern you think I should write? Leave it in the comments below, and if I haven’t already got it on my list of upcoming patterns and I actually write it, you’ll get a free copy!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve made numerous attempts at knitting, and I am a total failure! it’s so bad I can’t even hold the needle’s right.
Well it doesn’t matter anymore, because I met Raecale Stull, creator at Stull Knits. She sells at the Cache Valley Gardners Market, and Park Silly Sunday with me, and her stuff is AMAZING!
I bought the brown hat in the photo below, and I am seriously in love!
I’ve worn it all fall, and it’s so warm, and made really well!
But what makes Raecale seriously awesome is her slippers!
They’re hand-knitted, then felted, and then stitched with all kinds of different design! I’m really hoping I can find an excuse to buy some this year, because they are even more amazing in person that they are in these pictures!
So check out Raecale on Facebook and on Etsy , and if you want to buy me a pair, I wear a 6.5 and love red and turqoise!
