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:

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!

announcement #2:

Aaaaaand, I’ve got a little tidbit of news.  Remember that secret thing I mentioned a couple of posts ago?  Well maybe not, but there’s something awesome coming.  It’s almost ready, too!  Ok ok, I’ll tell you — I’m just too excited to keep it in.

That’s right!  A giveaway!  But, not all of the components for this giveaway have arrived in the mail yet, so I’m not going to reveal what I’ll be giving away!  I’m just gonna tell you it’s a good bit of stuff.  It’s my first giveaway, after all, so it has to be good.  It’s to celebrate having over 50 followers on this site, and to say thank you!  There will have to be a couple of stipulations for you to enter, but nothing strenuous or annoying, I promise.  Also, the giveaway won’t be open for long, so you’ll probably want to check back every couple of days to make sure you don’t miss it.  Of course, I don’t know how long it will take for the last component to come in, but if it takes too long I’m probably going to get too impatient and I’ll throw in something different.

Anyway, I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as I am!  I’ll be posting again soon either way.  Thanks for visiting!

a little project

I saw a cool pincusion pattern on ravelry!  But it’s a knitted pincushion.  I didn’t want for it to take forever, so I quickly improvised my own pincushion that is almost exactly the same, but crocheted.  I used a US7 hook and some Caron Simply Soft, and I’m pretty happy with my results:

Mine kinda looks like a happy cupcake or something… It’s stable though, and definitely will be useful.  If anybody is interested in making this crocheted pincushion, please leave a comment letting me know and I’ll write something up real quick.

Thanks for stopping by!
