This is the year. It’s been decided. I’ll have a book out by the end of the year. It’s going to be a self published, crochet pattern book. It’s called, “Monsters That Could Totally Eat You.” I’m going to have it available as a real life book and an ebook (I can do both, right?). This is a very exciting time, and I’m not sure why I’ve been making excuses as to why I couldn’t start right away. I tend to sabotage myself when it comes to projects that I really want to complete. Anyone else do that?

The most updated progress shot of this monster so far… after the arms and legs are finished, I’ll start on the mouth details. Elvis is very excited. Clearly.

The plan is to have a monster a month completed… on top of my other Knot By Gran’ma work. I started to freak out when I realized what I had planned, but I can do it. Also, the world won’t end if I fall behind on the other patterns and dolls that I want to crochet. I need to remember that. It’s like video games. Nothing real happens if you lose to Mario Kart. You just try again, and hope your 6 year old doesn’t kick your ass.

In the next few weeks I have to start looking for a pattern tester to work exclusively on the book patterns.

Monsters have feet… this particular one will have three. It’s going to be amazing… the thread work in this book is really going to make these monsters pop… and it will be easy enough to crochet.

I’m planning on creating nine monsters (that could totally eat you) to fill up my pattern book. I realize that it’s not too many, but they all will be pretty involved as far as the crochet patterns go. Each one should have a back story and some sort of artsy photograph to go with the crochet pattern. This pink monster is the official number one design. I find myself excited when I have time to work on him/her.

Stay tuned for next month’s quick look at the second monster.
