Hmmmm. It’s a little quiet in here. Possibly because I haven’t been here in a little while. Sorry about that, guys and gals!
I’ve been keeping busy with non-crafty type things as well as crafty. But you don’t come here to hear about all that. You’re here for crafty news. And maybe for random shots of mugs and the tea I’m having today.
It’s really yummy, in case you’re curious. Strong and spicy, especially if you drink it the way I do. I double the amount of tea leaves suggested and steep for the longest suggested time. It’s best the first cup around, though. I’m on my second cup with these leaves and it’s a little weaker than I like. But I generally like a tea strong enough to stand your hair on end.
Anyway, on to the crochet!
The tests are going so well! My testers are awesome and we’re so close to the release of the Brat pattern! 7 days and then I will have the 1st pattern released for sale this year. In 19 days, I’ll have my 2nd pattern. As for the 3rd pattern, let’s just say that good progress is being made on that particular front.
See? Great progress. I even let you see a part of the pattern. I’m basically giving away the whole thing to you!
I think I’ve figured out the little thing that was going to be the sticking point in this pattern. I just hope I don’t run out of yarn… This colorway on this particular yarn base isn’t available any more.
Once I get to the point where I will be thinking about the tutorial toy for this pattern, I will buy the camera I told you guys about last week. I’ve decided that it’s worth giving y’all a better quality tutorial video. It’s going to be great!
I have so many idea percolating in my brain; I look forward to sharing them with y’all! I’d love to do something Cardiac Awareness or Autism Awareness at some point, but that’s going to take some figuring out. Baby steps…
Well, that’s all for me this week. Back to playing with yarn! I hope next post here won’t be so long in coming!
