April Fool's Day

I need to get something off of my chest that's been brewing for about a week. I've debated about posting anything because I don't want to offend or come across as being judgmental. Saturday is April Fool's Day, and I am not looking forward to it. Normally, it would be just another day, and I wouldn't think much of it. I might try to play a joke on my husband that would most likely not turn out as awesome as I thought it would. Right now, I am dreading it. Why am I dreading it? Because I am almost positive that when I open my Facebook app someone is going to have posted a fake pregnancy test. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive. Maybe I should just let it go. Maybe I should just avoid checking Facebook. But I know I'm not the only one. For those of us that have experienced loss or are experiencing fertility issues, pregnancy is not something that should be joked about. It is not a flippant thing. It should not be taken lightly. It is an extremely precious gift th…

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.

Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea tomake a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.

Lion Heart Blanket.

I think every time I post a new blanket pattern I say it’s my new favorite. Truthfully, I don’t have just one favorite. I love blankets that have beautiful colors and lots of texture.
I love, love, love Attic 24’s Cosy Stripes Blanket. I posted about a couple of weeks ago. For the blanket I recently completed I wanted to do a chevron version of it. After doing looking at loads of chevron and granny stripe patterns, I came up with a pattern of my own. It works up super quick. I did it in just a few days.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for spring. I am ready for warm weather, the Easter season, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and our wedding anniversary. (Okay, maybe I just realized how busy we are going to be in a month or two.)
Spring fever gave me the inspiration to make the animal hats I have been wanted to make since the beginning of January. I’ve seen such cute knitted versions on Pinterest, but I hadn’t come across a crochet pattern for any of them. What do I do when I can’t find a pattern? Come up with one myself.
I hope you all enjoy making them as much as I did.
