9 Instagram Accounts to Get Your Crojo Back

9 Instagram Accounts to Get Your Crojo Back

Have you ever lost your crochet mojo? Your crojo comes and goes, and it’s frustrating when it goes! It’s something we love to do – creating something from nothing with our hands. It can be hard to get back into your groove, and everyone has their own ways of doing that. One of my favorites is to scroll through the ‘gram. Instagram is full of inspiration.

Whether you’re looking for a new pattern, a different type of yarn or fiber to play with, or a completely new project, you’ll find something that sparks that little crojo inside of you. I’ll betcha you will.

My Instagram feed is always filled with really great content, but there’s a few accounts that I always know will get my heart beating fast. Check ’em out.

How to Balance Holiday Orders with Other Committments

How to Balance Holiday Orders with Other Committments

It’s 11:47 PM, and there’s yarn everywhere. The couch is covered in different colored skeins, a few strands hang off the cushions and lead to balls on the other side of the room, and there’s scraps all over the coffee table. I’m so lucky to have a boyfriend that deals with the craziness. I’ve pretty much taken over our living room with my crochet projects. Thankfully he has his own space in our second bedroom, but I still feel bad for the takeover! But that’s how my holiday season looks! Chaotic and messy.

Crochet Hugs Booties – Darn Good Yarn Box

Crochet Hugs Booties – Darn Good Yarn Box

Last month’s Darn Good Yarn box came, and I was excited to find out what June’s pattern would be. I had only experienced one box so far, which made the cutest hanging planters, so I knew it wouldn’t be something boring.

When my box came, I opened it and found beautiful blueish green yarn and…butterflies? I was so confused! It turns out they were magnets and were June’s surprise gift. I was pretty excited about that because now I get to find places to put them in our apartment!

Now onto the pattern… Continue reading “Crochet Hugs Booties – Darn Good Yarn Box”

American Flag Themed Egg Collecting Apron

American Flag Themed Egg Collecting Apron

I am so excited to share my latest egg collecting apron with everyone! The inspiration for this apron came from a post my friend, Made by Molly, tagged me in on Facebook of a red, white, and blue beach bag. With it being Independence Day, I knew I had to find a way to make a patriotic version of an apron. And you know what…the apron pattern is PERFECT for an American flag!

I giggled with excitement every time I worked on it. All 15+ hours. Continue reading “American Flag Themed Egg Collecting Apron”

REVIEW: Darn Good Yarn Subscription Box – May 2017

REVIEW: Darn Good Yarn Subscription Box – May 2017

I love subscription boxes. They’re so fun and so many of them give you a taste of certain products or foods. I have a whole list of makeup and beauty products from my ipsy subscription that I plan to buy at some point (I have to get through my samples first!).

A few months ago when I discovered the Darn Good Yarn subscription box, I immediately signed up. A yarn subscription box!? How have I never even thought to seek one out before!? And for $10 + shipping, how could I say no?

Here’s what you get. Continue reading “REVIEW: Darn Good Yarn Subscription Box – May 2017”

Five Crochet Patterns for Beginners

Five Crochet Patterns for Beginners

As a crochet beginner, it’s very easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of crochet patterns out there. THERE ARE SO MANY. Luckily we can narrow it down by what we actually know how to do, right? 🙂 But even then, let’s say you’ve master single and double crochets, and now you want to try out a pattern with one or both of those stitches. There are still so many to choose from!

I’ve been crocheting since about 2012. My first project was an infinity scarf, and my mom didn’t give me a pattern. I just double crocheted around and around. Pretty easy, but after that I was hungry for more!

The patterns below are some of my favorite crochet patterns for beginners, and the instructions are so easy to follow! That was a huge thing for me. If the pattern wasn’t easy to read, I was moving on. All About Ami is one of my favorites, so I would highly suggest taking a peek around her site for some inspiration!
