I have had this theme for a few years now and I had been thinking about changing it. I was looking through the themes WordPress had to offer and I had found something that I liked the look of, but didn’t have some of the options that I had gotten used to, plus I would have to redo my entire sidebar and that was something I didn’t want to do. So, I decided to used some of the options this theme has available and found a new background. I am happy with the new look and I hope you like it too!

Sorry for the inactivity this year. I had a lot going on with dealing with my health issues, home, kids, finishing the slipper socks for my sister in-law, and a huge project for my Uncle (which I will be making a separate post about at a later date. With pictures!).
While working on the project for my Uncle, I had an idea for a bag that I have been working on on and off for awhile when I needed a break. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to write a pattern for it yet though. I’m still working on figuring out how I want the bag to be. I made 2 already, but there are elements to it that I want to change and have 3 different colors already started. 1 is a solid color in Lime Aide (nice bright springy green), the 2nd is a 2 color in black and dark grey heather, and the 3rd is a 2 color in brown and sky blue. The ones that I already finished, a 3 color cross-body shoulder bag, and then a 2 color backpack that I’m sending to my mom. I’ve been using the 3 color one and it’s helped me see what I would like to change in the construction of some parts of it.
The Knee-High Slipper Socks I made for my sister in-law I did write a pattern for that was was thinking about selling, but I don’t have any good photos for it. I really should get it tested some more, but I haven’t had any luck with reliable testers (except for 1 friend of mine, who was great). The slipper socks are knitted in worsted weight yarn and was made to fit up to a 20 inch calf, a wider foot width, and the foot length is customizable.
My End of the Year Holiday Sale is coming up very, very soon! It will be starting on the 1st of November, 12am EST, this year! Ending on December 31, 11:59pm EST! 2 months long! 25% off of All Patterns! The sale includes everything in my Patterns for Purchase page.
I hope everyone had a good 2017 and a very Happy Holiday Season coming up! Keep an eye out for my upcoming blog post on the huge project that I have been working on this year!
I know I haven’t been active for pretty much almost the entire year. I really didn’t do very much crocheting at all, the projects I had started in 2015 I wasn’t very happy with any longer and the one special order I had was a bit discouraging for me, plus my health had been on a major roller-coaster also. Both physically and mentally. At that point, just looking at yarn caused me stress, so I just really needed a break. Badly.
Well, my break is over. It started when a friend “hired” me to crochet a gift for his fiance and even paid me upfront for it, then my mother asked for something knitted for my Sister In-law, which is something I am now working on since I finished and delivered my friends gift. Thanks to my friend and my mother, I am out of my “yarnie slump” and back into the “fiber groove”. I think I really needed someone to give me a nudge to get back motivated. It was also helpful that the requested projects were/are very simple ones. I do have to admit that my love for playing Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls Online really didn’t help to get me back playing with yarn for a little while either. LOL
I do not know when I will be producing new patterns again yet. I think I need to go back through all of my UFO’s, re-evaluate them and decide which I will finish and which I will frog. I also really need to go back though my yarn stash and reorganize it.
