Let’s start out with explaining that I need to be home where it’s quiet to work. I am without a noiseproof workspace. An office with a door would be wonderful, but that’s not how our home is set up at
This is my new shawlette. I started crocheting this late, last summer in the hopes that I’d get a piece that I love out of it. It was a good plan. This shawlette has been a staple in my wardrobe this past winter, and I’m looking forward to do some early spring hiking. It’s the perfect size to keep the chill off, and you can wear it many different ways.
Sometimes I just want to sell Knot By Gran’ma, and walk away from it all. Hubs is working 1 day a week, and I just paid myself $1.50 for last week. Surely I could make a better living opening a taco bar… or a brothel; or a taco, brothel bar. It could be called Taco, Taco, Tacos or something. For real. This comes up every year around this time. Everything slows down, and the case of the Pitty Potties comes to visit. I start thinking about selling the thing that makes me happy, because it’s hard and stupid bills… and it’s hard. (I haven’t quit yet, and I really don’t think it would help if I did.) So…
I have 70 crochet pattern designs that include free, paid, and unavailable crochet patterns. Holy crap! That’s quite the number. I started designing patterns about 14 years ago, and while I love what I’ve been doing lately, I’m cringing at quite a few of these… okay, more than a few. Some. Of. Them. Are. So. Bad. It’s time to thin out the horrible, and reformat the ones worth saving.
So many attacks on women’s healthcare availability and rights… For real? Women’s rights are human rights, no? I’ve had enough. I’m standing up for women’s healthcare rights. Healthcare for women should be personal, private, safe, and affordable. Women are human beings, the same as men. I’m baffled how my choices regarding my body, affect anyone in this country… probably because my choices don’t affect anyone aside from myself… and maybe Hubs. (We’re a team, and he’s informed… but ultimately it’s my body. Also he’s cool as hell when it comes to women’s issues.) This goes for any other woman.
These puppets may be my all time favorite crochet pattern design that I have ever come up with. Scratch that. They are my all time favorite design. I’ve been quietly designing and testing these patterns for the KBG Patreon page. I wanted to make a really cool crochet pattern for anyone who supports my Knot By Gran’ma crochet pattern designing. These guys fill that goal.
