I'm super excited about this month's edition of Hooked In. This month I have invited my friend Amber to share a bit about her and her business, Bliss This. Amber and I became friends through the Crochetpreneur Business Academy, and she is my CrocheTwin. We crack each other up because we always have the exact same comment (almost verbatim) in our online groups.

I know you are going to adore her as much as I do, because Amber is the kind of lady you can't help but to love.
21 of my designer friends and I have teamed up for an epic pattern giveaway starting today and ending on November 25. Unlike a traditional blog hop, you can get ALL 22 patterns for FREE any time through the week! Links to all of the patterns are below, and the code is the same for all of them. Just click the photo to be taken to each designer's pattern.
Guess what?! I am putting all of my patterns on sale until the end of August! Use the code StraightHookin and take 35% off of any pattern at checkout!

If you're on the fence about trying out my patterns, you can get a feel for my style with a few free patterns here on my blog!

There are only 3 stitches used, and a few techniques for color changes can be used, which I will outline below:
