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
It’s that time of year again…
Feast or famine is this year’s theme for crochet orders. Right now it’s feasting time at Knot By Gran’ma. On top of the older order that I was finishing up, I received two wonderful wholesale orders and a request for a custom poncho. The hooks and yarn have been flying. I love it.
My monster doll finally got himself some fancy arms! I had to go into my project bag and find the arms that I made him from when I first started this crochet pattern. If you’ve been crocheting along through Patreon, you might have to do the same thing. The time lost looking for his arms was totally worth it. Look how regal and might he looks with his new frilly underarms now that his arms are sewn onto his body. Frickin’ cool.
This was kind of inevitable, because I didn’t follow through on my original plan for my shark hats. Hats? Yes, hats… as in more than one shark hat crochet pattern. The entire things started with this little sketch on the very bottom of my work notebook. The original plan was always for a Great White Shark Hat and a Great Hammerhead Shark Hat. Something happened where Shark Week was moved to earlier in the summer, and I freaked out. I had the Great White Hat finished, but was too impatient to sit on it for the following year’s Shark Week so I could finish the Great Hammerhead Shark Hat. Sad face.
