NatCroMo Blog Tour 2017

NatCroMo - almost sounds like it could be a blues singer - is National Crochet Month and it's happening NOW!

In the past there may have been a public stigma that crochet is something only little old ladies do in their doily-decorated houses. Well, we all know that's not always true - not to knock the doily ladies because I pretty much think they rock too with their teeny hooks and crochet thread. Mad props.

This generation has brought a new set of crochet enthusiasts and experts who are constantly pushing their skills, and creating new techniques and styles. There's LITERALLY something for everyone. If you doubt it I dare you to google "crochet for _insert anything_" and see what you find.

We've come a long way and we have our very own month to prove it. This year, I'm very happy to be a first-timer in the 5th annual NatCroMo blog tour by crochetville.com. So go check out my interview on their blog to learn a little more about my background, what's most important to me, and if I'm bistitchual. ;)

As a bonus, here's how you can celebrate NatCroMo, Playin' Hooky style.

Looky Looky

Get knotty for National Crochet Month

If you've ever crocheted in public, you know that more often than not someone will ask you what you're knitting. (If you've never crocheted in public, you SHOULD!!) It can be a little irritating that everyone thinks that yarn=knitting. Let's change that!! For National Crochet Month, I'm offering an exclusive run of these Looky Looky I Got Hooky sweatshirt, tees, and coffee mugs to show your hooky pride.
And so that people stop comparing you to their great-great-grandmother who knits... just kidding, they still will, but at least you'll look UH-mazing. ;)

I'm also participating in Crochetville.com's NatCroMo blog tour.

Did Phil Feel Lucky?

Ok campers, rise and shine...it's GROUNDHOG DAY! The big question on everybody's lips... On their chapped lips... Did Phil see his shadow??

HE DID - I was RIGHT!! He saw his shadow, got scared, and put his cute little furry butt back in bed. Seriously though who can blame him though? That means we'll have 6 more weeks of beanie-wearing weather (yes, I know that it's technically 6 more weeks until the first day of Spring anyway, but let's just go with it). 

Head over to my Ravelry shop and pick your favorite, or two, or TEN because they're HALF OFF today to celebrate the fuzzy little prognosticator named Phil. Use the code GROUNDHOGDAY when you checkout.
