crochet::life::everything in between::

Wow, so I haven’t written a post since December…story of my life since 2015 pretty much, huh?

Meet my new overseer, Salem

Thanks for sticking around and not removing me from your email or reader.  I may not be exciting, but hey, I will show up occasionally to prattle on about crochet stuff or try to make you chuckle.  None of this has been planned and it’s free, so kudos to you for thinking I’m at least interesting enough to visit once in a while. (Holy hell it’s been so long since I’ve tried to write something decent, I had to look up ‘a while vs. awhile’ for that sentence.)

So you ask, what pray tell has the yarnchick been up to all of this time?  The answer is that I’ve been making a ton of stuff, watching more streaming video seasons of crap than anyone should, taking care of my husband through 3 back surgeries (he’s fine now btw),  getting my amazing son through college, and generally being caught up in the mundanities of life.  The important to me things like blogging, and pattern writing, and figuring out where my future ‘yarnchick business’ will go; have all been stuck in last place for far too long.

I’ve done some fun projects, and I post quite often to my Instagram @yarnchick40 if you are so inclined.  I have started a second account @hookertherapy too, if you are further inclined because I’m a glutton for punishment building my future business around that name. I still have this love/hate relationship with fast social media…I still wonder if blogging is dead at times, and the mere snippets of microblogging don’t leave me feeling as if I am making a dent in furthering my yarny career.  Buuuut, it seems as if the fiber arts community is becoming as short-attention-spanned as the rest of the world sooooo yeah, when in Rome…

If you’ve been around for the ride, you are aware that I have posted quite a few free patterns.  They will be going away.  Please feel free to use them if you already have favorites that you have downloaded, but eventually they will all be moved to paid patterns in my Ravelry store, and will no longer be available on this site.  Over there, I am @yarnchick40 and I’d love to connect if we haven’t already.  I wanted to make sure that you were aware in plenty of time before they are each removed.  It will be a slow process, but after today I will not be able to guarantee their time on this site.

That should catch you up on the basics; and as always, I appreciate that you stopped by.  Happy hooking 🙂

  1. You keep your hand in and your business will pick up speed when it’s meant to. Sorry to hear about hubby’s back problems, but I’m sure he was a good patient and I’m glad it’s all behind him now. No pun intended there. Hope you can make more time for yourself soon xxx
