New Year, New Journey!

Hello Friends!

I am so thrilled to be starting this blog, as it is something that has been on my mind since getting more heavily involved in the crochet community in the past year. I love all my Fibre Friends and I can’t wait to share some fun stuff with you all.

What to expect?

In this blog I plan to share posts about my journey as a crochet maker and designer.

I’ve discovered that crocheting is much more than a craft, it is a lifestyle, and one that merits writing about.

I can’t wait to share photo and video tutorials of some of my favorite techniques, with you! After creating a handful of crochet patterns, I know the opportunity for learning new things is endless.

Can you say FREE PATTERNS? I have some really special designs up my sleeve that I want to make accessible to you. Make sure to subscribe to my Newsletter so that you don’t miss out! 💕

Thank you so much for reading my very first blog post! I hope you will tag along with me on this crocheting/blogging/designing journey.

Bye for now!
