My new neckwarmer pattern!

worn to the side on largest size
So I have lots to do on the beard beanie front - fall is fast approaching!  But before I get to that, I'm determined to finish up all of my semi-finished crochet patterns.  Designing is my favorite thing ever!  Well, along with cooking, on the creative front that is... (I can think of lots people that I definitely love more  :-)  ).  Getting the patterns finished and written up is a bit tedious though, seriously.  Busy work.  It is worth it though - for sure.  I love getting comments and photos from customers and readers who've finished up items following one of my patterns!  It seriously makes my day!

Plus - I think I'll have a new pattern to post here on my blog soon!  This one will posted right on the blog and will be free to all!  Happy Crocheting!

My Crazy Life and a New Pattern

Hi all!  Long, long time no see, right?  Yep, so sorry for the over 1 yr lapse in posts.  What can I say - life got a bit more hectic than I ever in a million years expected it to!

So, for a quick update - the beardbeanie business pretty much rules my life in the fall/winter months, then in the spring/summer, I try to hibernate a bit for a break.  Hibernating in the summer sounds wierd, I know.

I'm still cooking and crocheting and being Mom and wife - and hopefully maybe getting the juggling (of my time) down better.  And I've been wanting to get back to blogging for awhile now.  Here is my first attempt at getting through the block I've had for the last while!

These are some new head bands I have in the shop, but more importantly I've written up the pattern and need some testers!  It's sized for children and adults.  So if you are reading this and you crochet - wouldn't you love to try it out for me?  Please?  You can use any worsted weight yarn you have!  They look super cute and make great gifts!  Let me know if you're up for testing it for me!
