hat pincushion appearance in Simply Crochet!

The magazine Simply Crochet has recently released a special edition, the Amigurumi Collection!

Simply Crochet Amigurumi Collection

There are so many cute patterns that it’s more like a book than a magazine, and I definitely want to make a few of the items inside!

I’m honored that my hat pincushion pattern that Simply Crochet published back in Spring of 2014 made it into this new publication:

Thanks, Simply Crochet!

Hat Pincushion

If you were to check out the latest issue of Simply Crochet magazine (Issue 16), you would see my latest pattern — a springtime pincushion shaped like a little hat!

As you can probably guess, I am incredibly honored to be in such a wonderful magazine. And guess what? My fellow blogger Rachel from The Little Room of Rachell is also in it with her own lovely brooch pattern. Rachel was the first blogger I ever met face to face. We met over the Christmas holidays in 2012 and it was great fun — hopefully I can go back and see her again one day! Rachel has actually already made her own pincushion hat, and I intend to make her brooch pattern as soon as I can get ahold of this issue (Issue 16); it isn’t available here for another couple of days. There may be even more bloggers in the issue that I know, but I’ll just have to wait and see!
Please forgive any formatting errors in this post — I believe this is my first post from my iPad and I’m not sure exactly if I’ve done it right, haha.
Also, thank you everyone for your kind words after my last post about my uncle — I really appreciate your sympathy and support.
Well, I think that’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks for stopping by!

surprise appearance in “Inside Crochet”

A follower of NYAC’s facebook page alerted me today that I am in the 50th issue of “Inside Crochet!”


I was astonished (not the least because I’d had no idea about it) and immediately bought the issue on my iPad.  Sure enough, there on page 6 was a small blurb about the as-we-go stripey blanket that was the focus of our first crochet along!  I’m sincerely honored.  There’s another CAL going on right now following the pattern (only it’s translated into Dutch), and I believe it’s #crochetalong2014 on Instagram.  The blog for that current Dutch CAL is here.

Of course I’m very excited to be in a magazine, but I do wish the magazine had contacted me first so that I could have given credit to Julie over at Little Woolie — her blanket was the inspiration for mine and they are, after all, pretty similar.  I almost feel like it’s cheating, being in the magazine when she’s not given credit.  Well, she’s getting credit here; her blanket is amazing and she’s a great inspiration (she’s also a really nice person!).

Well, that’s my fun announcement for the day.  I haven’t been crocheting or knitting at all in the past week so there’s nothing else really going on, but hopefully there will be soon.  I’ve actually written up a new little Spring pattern that I will be sharing in the near future!  Hope to see you back soon!
