Product Review | The Laptop Pattern Partner

I like to think that I have a pretty sweet job. I work from home in my pjs, set my own hours, and let my creativity be my guide. Of course, the drawbacks would be never quite getting away from work, like, ever. Oh, and the unpredictable pay. And maybe even the lack of face to face contact with other grownups, unless you count the cashiers at the grocery store. I try to get in as much adult conversation as I can while they ring up my order. Just slightly embarrassing. However, the good always outweighs the bad when it comes to this Dream Career, and it never hurts when some extra perks come along that sweeten the pot! Enter, Chetnanigans. Sean and Holly O’Brien are the Masterminds behind the name, and with Sean’s love of wood working, and Holly’s passion for crochet, they are looking to fill a void in the under-serviced Crochet and Knit market. Chetnanigans offers… (more…)

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Yeah, I get it. Talking about gauge swatches can be about as exciting as watching paint dry. You know you are supposed to do them, but you might tell yourself you don’t have time, or you don’t like the hassle, maybe you figure you are good if […]

Chunky Boot Cuffs | Free Pattern

Chunky Boot Cuffs | Free Pattern

This was Sincerely, Pam’s first FREE pattern! This pattern is a thank you to everyone who has purchased from me before, and for those who haven’t, I thought that this would be a great way to introduce you to my patterns at no cost to you. As always, this pattern has been tested by several well qualified testers. The Chunky Boot Cuffs Pattern is the PERFECT compliment to the Un’bear’ably Cute Cowl and Mittens. It matches in both yarn weight, and finishing style! The nice chunky weight is exactly what you need for the cool, crisp mornings that this time of year brings us.

  Wow! I blinked, and now it’s March 2017! Isn’t March great? I mean, I could do without the Lake Effect winds, -20C temps and snow up to my eyeballs; but March means we are so close to Spring. Soon I will be able to […]

12 Weeks of Christmas CAL – Christmas Tree Basket

I’m one of those people. The ones who get giddy as soon as the weather starts to change, the temperature dips, the first flakes fall from the sky, and the store shelves start to fill with Holiday Cheer. I do hold off on putting up […]

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Yeah, I get it. Talking about gauge swatches can be about as exciting as watching paint dry. You know you are supposed to do them, but you might tell yourself you don’t have time, or you don’t like the hassle, maybe you figure you are good if you go up/down a hook size or you get so excited to start that you just forget! Maybe you don’t really know what gauge is or how to make a swatch. Well, I decided to conduct an experiment! I asked several different Designers and Crocheters to make me a gauge swatch using this criteria: They needed to use Red Heart Soft and an I (5.5 mm) hook and take a picture of their 4″x4″ gauge swatch for comparison. Simple enough! Right? Before I share the results with you below, I want to take a quick second to share how to check for gauge on your project.
