Crazy Days of Summer!

Well the heat is here. Not loving it, lol. I am having to get up much earlier to go walking, also not loving it, haha.

However, we have a new member of the family! Meet, Cerberus. He is a 5 year old Border Pit, Border Collie and Pit mix.

Cerberus

What a sweet lovable boy he is! And between him and Duke I am being more motivated to walk everyday!

Duke

I picked up Cerberus this last weekend while on a trip to attend the Crochet/Knit Addicts of North Texas Facebook Group monthly meeting. It just happened to be on the same day as World Wide Knit/Crochet in Public Day!

Me at Starbucks in Plano Texas

We had such a great meeting! Stay tuned for more on the next project we will be doing!

How is your summer going?

May May be Productive?

Beginning of a new pattern.

I have several things on my needles and my hook to be finished in May!

Therefore I am hoping that May is a productive month. I was not sitting around in April. However I had a couple road trips which slowed down my production line a bit!

I talk more about some of it in this video 😊

I have another new pattern coming out with a collaboration, and I am so excited! But I can’t say more until the pattern is back from testers!

Collaboration with PawPlyYarn!

I am also working on some fantastic new tutorials for my YouTube channel and I can’t wait to see how they are received 😆

What are your plans for May?

Trade Days

Laela Martin of “The Stamping Ground”

I managed to get out and go to a local Trade Days event last week! It was almost completely outside, and despite being a bit windy and chilly, well attended.

I went specifically to see a friend of mine who lives close to me and is a fellow crafter! Her name is Laela, and she makes the most beautiful handmade cards! She is also a crocheter, and nomad crafter like me!

We had a great visit. I brought home a few of her cards too! I will show them in another video. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy my little clip of her beautiful work.

Have fun today!

PRESENTING: My New Pattern! The Willow Arches Shawl ❣️

https://fiberflooziecrafts.com/product/willow-arches-shawl-pattern/

I am so excited to bring you my first design! This is my Willow Arches Shawl. I came up with this design after using one of these stitch patterns in my Be “Squared” Crochet A Long.

I made mine using Willow Yarns Denim Grace, a medium 4 weight acrylic wool blend. This is a lovely yarn to work with and worked up beautifully!

This is an advanced beginner pattern. I have tutorials for both left and right hand on my YouTube channel.

This has been such a fun process! With getting the feedback from the testers to seeing their photos of their shawls, to filming the tutorials!

I hope you enjoy it! ❤️

Baby It’s Cold And Let’s Catch Up!!

Well it’s been a hot minute since I posted. However I am not letting the grass grow under my feet over here! Haha!

I finished two hats….

Custom order #1.
Custom order #2.

I finished this cowl and am working on a tutorial for it.

The yarn for the cowl is a lovely cotton from Made In America Yarns. One of their lines called Florafil. It’s so light and fluffy for a bulky cotton! Love it.

The Be “Squared “ CAL is gaining speed! We have 11 squares under our belt now!

And here’s a sneak peak at my first go at designing a shawl!

It should be going out to testers soon! So exciting!!

Stay warm everyone! Spring is coming 😊

Silly Duke!

It’s cloudy and misty again today in Texas. Duke and I traipsed off on our walk anyway. He found himself in a predicament! Caught in the netting off the hay bales! He is so silly sometimes 😂🤣😂

Help Mom it’s got me!
