26 Days of Love Blog Hop

blog hop Crochet Free Pattern

Happy New Year! It was so nice to kick 2020 to the curb, wasn't it? I had such high hopes for the first year of a new decade, but... well, you were there. You know EXACTLY what kind of a year it was.

This year, I have zero expectations. I had a lot of great plans for last year, and while I was able to follow some through to completion, many others just didn't happen. And The 'Rona isn't necessarily to blame for some of them, like how I had intended to start filming video tutorials. My hubby bought me a really nice video camera and professional lighting for Christmas in 2019, but I never got around to it. No excuses, I just... didn't. So this year, I have high hopes of actually getting that started, but no promises.

I did, however, publish nearly 20 new patterns and a new blog post almost every week, plus I made a ton of new friends and participated in several blog hops last year!

(ad disclosure: I’m a blogger. We have ads. If you click one, I might get some small compensation. Standard issue, but you can read all about it in my boring privacy policy if you really want to.) 

Speaking of blog hops, I'm starting 2021 by participating in the 26 Days of Love Blog Hop which is hosted my one of my new friends, Joy from Anvis Granny. All month long, you can grab a different FREE pattern each day from lots of super talented designers! I know I mentioned this more than a few times last year, but I'm serious- the crochet designer business is so neat because as designers we don't look at one another as "the competition", but fellow collaborators and cheerleaders. It is possible to encourage one another and celebrate each other's successes while still growing your own business.

Straight Hooked 26 Days of Love

So now, let me introduce you to more of my friends- each of us will be sharing a pattern for free later this month. Feel free to bookmark this page and come back every day to click the link of the day and grab your pattern! Unlike most blog hops, you can find out RIGHT NOW which patterns will be available and on what day- how fun is that?! (Note: some of the patterns have not yet been released and the links will not work until their specific day)
