Something New!

Look at what I've learned!

Ok, so it's a far cry from an amigurumi, or a pair of socks, but I am so excited that I am learning how to knit!  There are SO many wonderful knit patterns out there that I have longed to make for the longest time.    Right now I'm still working on my 'knit', next will be 'purl', and hopefully I'll continue to learn at a steady pace.  Yay me!  A special thanks to my big sis for being my patient and loving teacher.  She's also the one who taught me how to crochet 14 years ago!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Bumbee Pattern

I finally got my very first PDF pattern written and available for purchase!  It seemed like a lot of hassle to get all the little steps done, but now that I have a workflow, I expect it to go much faster the next time.  I will be listing my patterns on both Ravelry (where you do not have to be a member to purchase), and Etsy.  I have added links to both of these shops to my blog's sidebar so that they are always easy to find!
And here she is...

I decided to name her Bumbee.
It was hard choosing a name as all the good ones are taken, but this one felt just right.

I hope you folks like her!  Of course, I will continue to offer the occasional free pattern as before.  Also, I want to start a series of posts with tips and tricks for common crochet issues.  Ah, but now I'm getting ahead of myself.  For today I think I'll slow down a bit and enjoy today's accomplishment.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
