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.
I failed miserably at Snapchat, but I LOVE Instagram stories. Does that make me a bad person? Snapchat makes me feel old. It’s the first social media platform that I can’t easily master. Thus, the old feeling. It took me a week to figure out how to use it. All I do there is play with the selfie filters when nobody is looking, and then erase my pictures. Instagram is a little different. I know how to use it, which is cool. The new stories feature really opens up a little window into my world, without wrecking all of the hard work I’ve been putting into my feed to make it a more cohesive Knot By Gran’ma Instagram account.
I’ve headed straight for the hands and arms this week. The idea was to avoid getting stressed out over the feet design, because I thought that’s what would happen. This week’s hands and arms actually helped me figure out what I am going to do with the feet, so I’m pretty happy about the decision. These worked up pretty quick. I’m loving how they turned out.
Welcome to my crochet-a-long with a twist. I’ve been wanting to host one of my original designs in a crochet-a-long for a long time but haven’t had a clue about how to go about it. Well. There was an aha moment the other day as I was figuring out some other stuff (My week offline was VERY fruitful in helping me decide where I’m taking Knot By Gran’ma). It’s funny how things work out like that sometimes. What I have in mind will take care of my lack of organization and enable for really fun free crochet patterns in the long run.
Haha. I wish I could actually say I have a studio, but for now the kitchen table that I take over daily and special spot on the couch will have to do. My work is slowly taking over my house, which is not helping out with the clutter issue going on over here. Clutter is such a creativity squisher. Blargh.
