So Much Going on Right Now - Hats, Dobby's and "Pattern Writing!

Good Afternoon Hookers!

So sometime ago I took on the task of writing my 1st Hat Pattern, made a gorgeous slightly slouchy beanie for women and while it hasn't sold a copy yet, I am pleased with it!

Any yes while my Etsy shop is on "Vacation" while I am healing from some burns from my hands, this pattern is still available on Ravelry!  Click here to get your Own Copy!

So then when my shop took a nosedive, a friend offered a giveaway to boost clicks - so I opted for a giveaway for my famous Dobby Doll! Sadly I only got two entries, and ended up just making two Dobby Dolls...BUT both recipients will be very happy!

So then I also figured out that the slouchy hats weren't working under my hard hat at work, so I threw this awesome beanie together to help keep my head warm!

Got some amazing testers to help me out and it's now ready to be published to Ravelry and my Etsy shop when it re-opens!  I am thrilled with it!

Then today I got bored with my normal afghan projects and made another hat that I may write up the pattern for, it's a little more complex so I am not sure I will.   But it's cute and I Love it!

It's a kids beanie, and I just LOVE it, as does my daughter, she hasn't taken it off since I had her take these pictures.

Still need to finish the Harry Potter Crest and my Girl Scout Logo afghan's, but I sometimes need something easier to make!

So what's on your Hook Today!?!

My 2016 Project Wish List

Good Monday Afternoon Hookers!

How is everyone's project list rolling?  I still have a LOT to get done, let's see

1. The Harry Potter Crochet-A-Long, yeah still working on the crest.
2. The Girl Scout Logo Blanket I posted last week - no more progress has been made on that.
3. Another Braided Cowl to get over to the Retail Location, have one made, want to make one more.
4. A Dobby the House Elf, need three of these - one is an Etsy Order, one will be for the giveaway I am running on my Facebook Page (click here to enter) and then another one in case I get another order.
5.  Finish compiling notes from the testers for my recent hat pattern - here's a photo of the finished product, I've had 8 others send me their final projects and I am pleased with the results I'm seeing!

Whew TONS going on!

So then why do I have a Wish list of things I'd like to do that's a million miles long?

Like one of these bad boys, a Hexagon Granny Square Afghan

Then there's a secondary graph pattern that I'd like to try - instead of doing the Corner-to-Corner pattern I am used to doing, you instead make a small square for every block in the graph and assemble them into the picture, I think that would be really cool, I am calling it Crochet Quilting

But then I have this innate desire to make something super cute for my nephew's 1st Birthday - he got a lot of Sock Monkey stuff for Christmas, so thinking about going a Sock Monkey Hat...

So those are some of the main projects I have a burning desire to do! Not entirely sure why, just do!

But I think the main goal is to just up the sales on my shop and find more ways to make a little pocket money doing what I Love!

I think that's all for today!

I am hoping to have my next hat pattern published by the end of the Week! I am thrilled with it and the testers have given me a LOT of really positive feedback!

Happy Hooking One and All!
