Exciting things to come! And Thanks!

I am working on three blanket patterns right now, with yarn support by a major yarn company.  (EXCITING!)   The first is a simple and repetitive pattern, suitable for beginners.  The second is a floral-based motif afghan that is fun and beautiful.  The third is in the infancy stages but will BLOW YOUR MIND!  Heehee, it is super-cool.

Still hoping for a Mystery Afghan by the end of Summer.  I have a few ideas but nothing concrete yet.  I like to make the mysteries mysterious, so you don’t know what’s coming as you get the clues week by week.  This makes the design process a challenge.   I’m sure it work out, and it will be a FREE pattern.

For 2016, I’m thinking of a Hexagon of the Month Club.  🙂

Free Hat Patterns


I am not exactly known for my hat patterns, but I love to knit and crochet hats and usually whip up a bunch for Christmas gifts.  I have a few hat patterns on Ravelry, one crocheted and three knitted, and they are now all free patterns.  Check them out and let me see your finished objects!
