I’ve been quiet since last week, as I was prepping for a market over the weekend. I am still here, though, and making plans for some exciting things to share with you in the upcoming weeks!
One thing I am looking forward to sharing with you is a new format! I’m in the process of making some changes here, a major one being the addition of a shopping tab, where I’ll have the ability to process sales directly. More like an actual website, while still keeping a mostly blog format. I enjoy the blog vibe and sharing fun ideas and tutorials with you all.
I’m working out the details of a fun tutorial, and if all goes as planned, I’ll roll that one out next week for a fun, and unique How-To Tuesday. I’m just itching to tell you what it is, but I’m going to keep it under my hat and hope you find anticipation exciting 😛 . I will say one thing about it — be prepared to get messy. Messy crochet?! You betcha!
Also, I asked some fellow crocheters what they’d like to see here, and got the following responses:
- How to work with varying weights/thickness in yarn
- How to take care of tails when working with nylon thread
- How to pick color combos for projects
- Sweaters — one crocheter is looking for a specific kind
- Plus sized items
I’m looking into all of these requests and will find the best possible answer for them. If you know of any good resources I could share, feel free to leave links in the comments!
So, there you go! There are a few things you can look forward to this month!
Oh, what’s that? You want to know how the market went? Well.. It hovered just under 100 degrees here on Saturday, which apparently, does NOT make crocheted beanies, hats, scarves, and accessories very appealing to John Q. Public. I ended up doing just OK considering the very little expense I put into participating. I’ll probably not do another farmer’s market, or summer show period — unless I start making stuffies or other “off the body” crochet goods 🙂 Here is a peek at my table from Saturday. Thankfully, I had very little expectation from this market, so was not terribly disappointed. Also, I didn’t put a ton of effort in (which probably didn’t help lol).
Sunday, however, I scored the best Craigslist find! I found these chairs that I cannot wait to get started on! I’ve already started a little sanding. I’m taking pictures along the way so I can throw in a non-crochet related project in the near future.
I’m pretty new to the blogosphere, and I’d like to take a minute to thank you all for reading, and for clicking that follow button 🙂 I love the crochet community and look forward to helping you all in any way I am able! I really love hearing from everyone, so please, don’t hesitate to leave a comment. Whether you have a request for an upcoming post topic, or would just like to say hello — I enjoy getting to “know” everybody!
