Almost there…

Hello, all!

A few months ago I promised a crochet tutorial and I am sad to say I will not have this complete for another couple of months. If you don’t know already, I am due with my first baby here in just a couple of weeks. My husband and I are so very excited but have been very busy preparing! I plan to have some new patterns up this summer and fall as well as the tutorial. (And probably a few baby pictures as well!)

For more instant updates keep an eye on my FB fan page.

Thanks for your understanding… 🙂

And the winner is…

Congratulations to Kathryn Hunter! You are the winner of the Speckled Frog pattern giveaway! Thanks for stopping by my shop and enjoy your new pattern!

A brand new year

Hello and welcome to my brand new blog!

Today I watched the movie “Julie & Julia”. I wouldn’t say it’s a great movie, but I did find it inspiring. Since I started yarning* a couple of years ago I have noticed many, many craft types have a blog dedicated to their craft. Well, last November I started K1 Sew Too, my very own knit, crochet, and sewn items shop. (Of course my mom is the “sew” part, but it is mostly my shop. 🙂 Haha.) Anyway, I figured it was about time for me to start my own blog.

Here you will find my latest projects, ideas, and perhaps even a recipe or two. 🙂

*yarning – my word for knit and crochet
