Creativity is daydreaming the reality away!  

Blog


 In my blogs I will focus on how to use crochet to create stuff that will make life easier or prettier... Read up as you might find some of them useful as well. Some designs will be for free and some designs will have a price... It all depends on the effort it went into making/researching/designing it.

Please check the list of the blog entries as the titles of each entry will more or less hint what it is about...

Sign up for a NEWSLETTER as among regular updates, there will be seasonal creations that you will want to check out so you can have the best ideas made into best stuff by you! Subscription available on Home.

My first pattern to publish-PART I

I have always played around with free hand crochet and with adjusting the pattern I am using to my liking (being a bit extra creative) but I have rarely wrote anything down as once I am on a roll I like to just go with a flow…
So when I started doing this more seriously and by this meaning to give this hobby a serious go as a small business it was a no brainer that I would also do some designing. I have found out that this is quite DIFFICULT even if you are having even a bit of talent, as it requires A LOT of concentration, math and editing skills, but most of all it requires PATIENCE…
I had to frog so many times I lost count…
I had to multiply and count the stitches so many times I dreamed numbers and rows…
I had to stop and write down and take photos when all I wanted was just to continue into the next row…
But learning was exponential! I felt so energized when I was finally done, instead of feeling exhausted and happy it was all over…
Then onto the testing! Made a call on IG and have 4 wonderful ladies who answered the call. Sent them forms with my expectations from them as well as more description of what the design was and then the waiting game started… Me waiting for mistakes to be found and hoping the ladies would like the shawl as much as I do… Like showing someone your baby and hoping that not even a frown passes on their face… Some scary business!
Here is my ‘baby’! Presenting you the Midnight in North (before the blocking!):

Soon I will add a link to the pattern! First to see what the testers do! Follow the story on my IG account…
