Fun Facts About this Blogger

It seems as though I have sort of ‘dropped the ball’, when it comes to really allowing you guys to know more about myself. So I figured, why not do a little post about some fun facts about this crochet blogger. Well, here goes nothing! I snort when I laugh. Now, I am not talking like a little snort either, I mean a full on piggy snort is what comes out of this human being. Photography was my first love. I still enjoy the art, but it’s sort of taken…

Adventures of the Slouchy Hat

This past weekend the mister and I actually got to enjoy some alone time without any kiddos (that’s right, we had absolutely NO KIDS lol). So we took a little day trip to the Natural Bridge in Ky and just got lost. One of our favorite past times is going hiking and taking photographs of our mini adventures. It may have been pretty cold, but the fall colors against the dreary lighting were AMAZING and sort of created this euphoric feeling that we just couldn’t get enough of and I…

Why Crochet????

Why do I crochet? I get asked this more often than not and I for the longest time would simply state because I enjoy it. However, my reasoning stems from much deeper than that. In this post I am going to open up quite a bit.                 I started crocheting around the age of 8 or 9, my grandmother was the one who took the time to teach me. Little did I know that what she was doing was not just teaching me a craft to pass the time, but…

What to do when the Crojo is gone…

Crojo… You all know what I am talking about. Your crocheting mojo. We all have it, yet we all also know how quickly it can be gone.                 You cannot tell me that you have never in your crocheting career, started a project and midway through just lost your desire to continue on. I am not gonna lie, that happened to me not too long ago while I was working on a simple double crochet blanket for my 9-year-old daughter. I had made it to the point where I only…

Mandala Yarn Review: The Verdict is In!!!!

  I have worked with many types of wonderful yarn (as many of you wonderful hookers have as well) and it will come to you as no surprise that I also have quit the yarn addiction as well. I cannot even begin to explain the pure bliss I feel when I enter the yarn isle and I begin to take my time touching each and every brand they have to offer. So it should come as no surprise that when I first laid eyes on the Mandala yarn my heart…

Sorry I’ve been gone…

I am not gonna lie, I pretty much dropped the ball when it comes to my blog. See, when I started this endeavor I was about 3 weeks out from having surgery to remove a mass from my pelvic region. I had planned to take the 4 to 6 weeks I was off work recovering to work on getting my blog up and running but as many of you may know, life happened. I had no motivation to do much of anything other than to crochet and go fishing when…

Oh So Soft…. (A Yarn Review)

Hey all! So I want to get real with you all really quick. Now as many of you know, just because a yarn feels nice and looks nice doesn’t mean that it’s all that great to work with. So I wanted to take a moment and discuss this beautiful, amazing yarn that I have had the pleasure of working with here lately. What is the so-called yarn from the Gods that I speak of? It’s the ‘Big Twist’ Yarns- Rainbow Classic (can purchase here). Never (and I mean NEVER) have…
