This was a project that could have been the coolest, but simply got away from me. The Knotty Knucklehead Dolls started as a crochet-along, in an attempt to gain more blog and shop attention. There were a bunch of folks that took me up on this weeks long crochet-along, which ultimately ended with a free crochet pattern for everyone after it ended. These are cute dolls. They’re easy enough to not get bored, but complex enough to have to use your brain a little when crocheting them.
Apparently, I like to start big crochet projects and then allow myself to get totally distracted from those same large projects. NEXT they get buried in a work in progress bin, and I forget about them until a random monster leg falls out of the bin… all while ripping my craft closet apart so I can actually use it for craft work. I’m sad that they’re unfinished, as I had the most incredible plans for them. I think this kind of think could make other people sad too.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The day we profess our love for one another, or at the very least, let each other know that we’re kind of special to each other. This year I thought I’d throw my hat into the Valentine’s Day madness and offer some of my own valentines for sale. Cat people and pug owners need Valentine’s Day love too, and a cat butt or pug butt keychain could be the best way to express your feelings for them.

Ever have a year fly by, and wonder how it happened so fast? That was this year for Knot By Gran’ma. Looking back at last year’s Year in Review post was a little startling too. I’ve scaled back so many
This poncho design was the most challenging piece of 2017. The math involved was insanity at best, for someone who has not been in a math class for over 20 years. There were probably almost the same amount of rows that were ripped out, as there are completed rows on the poncho. I may have sounded like a sailor during the times I was actively working on this poncho. Now it’s been completed and is with its new owner. It’s gorgeous, and I can’t wait to start the second one so it can be turned into a crochet pattern.
Is there such a thing as a cat butt colorway? (I have a new cat butt colorway. That’s why I was asking.) This is the Dark Rainbow Cat Butt Collection, and it’s freakin’ fabulous. Here’s what you need to know:
It’s that time of year again…
