I just posted the 30th episode of the Melody Crochet Podcast and celebrated 1500 subscribers! (Thanks guys!!) Like always, I discussed my crochet, knitting, other crafts as they applied.
I finished knitting a pair of socks that went so fast. And I have started making a tutorial for a my “Independence Kimono” and an off the shoulder top. I reviewed ZZ Twist by Lion Brand this last week and will post that in a day or so and I will be sure to let you know about it here on the blog. (spoiler…its yarn. I like it).
I had lots of crochet time on the road and while visiting places because this week was Izzys Birthday!!! He is nine now, guys. Nine! Remember when I was here and showing you the first tiny things I made for him? Oh, the feels are so strong on birthdays. I am so proud of the kind, strong, peaceful little man he has become. I could just explode. It has been a wild year and he has really helped keep our family grounded.
We got him a drum set. Yes, a drum set.
While celebrating I went ahead and made some home purchases. I am thinking that I need another youtube channel for the non-yarn related stuff that. I feel completely comfortable sharing that here with the blog…but I feel hesitant on the Youtube channel. I worry that my friends there might just be after the yarn content. I will meditate on this for the week and decide. There are several things that I haven’t shared because I didn’t want to bore anyone. That is not like me!
I am also really excited to share my progress on some other projects this week, designing some projects and getting ready for the holiday shop. This is the time of year that I start thinking about the holidays. I blame Hobby Lobby for putting up the Christmas Decorations. It is delightful in the heat of Texas…but it does make you feel just a little pressure.
I talk a lot about my new yarn that I purchased for the #SummerRomanceAlong with CrochetLuna. It was not on purpose. The subject of the yarn just kept coming up in the conversation. My theme is Buffy and Spike. But, I lean more toward Spike Drucilla. #teamspuffy
I hope that you take the time (30 minutes, specifically) to hang out with me on this fine day. Grab a project to work on and a nice cup of something.
If you have any questions or comments please leave them! I love to converse…if you are wondering where to connect…
