Thinking about things this week after getting a post from a friend on Facebook which read “only 100 sleeps to christmas”.
I think some people look forward to certain times of the year like Christmas or Easter or a date like a birthday or anniversary. Others cannot wait for the latest release or new season of their favorite tv program. Once that is over they start waiting for the next one.
In the crocheting world this is the same. Some people follow the latest cal (crochet along ) or follow certain designers or groups. There is nothing wrong with that, others search the internet for the latest trends or for stitches they have not used before. Some stick to what they know others push the boundaries. Which do you do? Do you follow or are you followed?
I never thought that people would follow me, but they do (thank you). It could have something to do with the free patterns that are published here or maybe it is the blog posts themselves. (There will be another free pattern given at the end of this blog post).
People from fourteen different countries (USA, Denmark, Russia and Malaysia to name a few) have looked at this blog, which is amazing. I think a lot of crocheters put themselves down, they think they could not do a blog or a pattern or help other crocheters. I say you can. Do it, try it. You will be pleasantly surprised as I was. If it does not work what have you lost? A bit of time? If you do decide to write a blog etc. let me know.
I remember when my wife started to think about sharing her patterns etc, “I said go for it, give it a try, why not”. To see the look on her face when someone downloaded one of her patterns was as they say ‘priceless’. The excitment she felt when someone bought a pattern and then after making it gave a five-star review.( I have a talented wife). . Do not think you cannot but you can.It could be you – give it a go.
An update from a previous blog – I have found a good use for pegs – you will not belive it, they are good for hanging out the washing on the line.
Do not tell the wife I had to steal a pack from her crocheting stash (she has not noticed yet). Also don’t mention chopsticks to the wife all will be revealed in a future blog.
That’s all for now and as promised the wife has been busy making a new pattern – a scarf pattern – (the daughter is running around the house with the scarf on as she loves the feel of the yarn, she also has claimed it to take back to Uni with her). Hope you enjoy the pattern.
