Hello dear readers! :) Can you believe it’s November already? The days are getting shorter, the air is getting chilly, the leafs are turning color… and my shop has opened! :D
But, first things first. Last month’s giveaway was nothing short of a success. Visitor stats are off the charts, and I have had SO many wonderful comments – I feel truly blessed to have such a following, after starting my blog just 6 months ago. So thank you, THANK YOU lovely readers, for making me feel appreciated! :)
Alright, onto the important stuff. Who won the giveaway??? I chose a winner at random, and whos name popped up? … *drumrolls please*
Everyone, please put your hands together for…
Debi Y. from Hooks&Yarns!
Congratulations! :D I will email you shortly with the details.
Feel left out? Don’t worry, just keep reading… ;)
In other news: my Etsy shop is now officially open for business! :)
I still cannot believe it – I have worked so hard the past few months, and suddenly the moment was there – all the photos had been edited, I figured out things like shipping, I finished writing all the texts, the shop banner looked like I wanted it to… So yesterday, very secretly, I opened up shop! It feels so awesome to see your own Etsy page in front of you, just, exist :)
Anyway, I didn’t want to make everyone feel sad that didn’t win the giveaway, so: for all a creative being readers, during November you get a 5% discount on everything in the shop!
Just enter this code when you check out: NOVEMBERLOVE.
Enough shop talk. This used to be a crochet blog; let’s keep it that way ;) I’ve been really busy crocheting a cover for my IKEA footstool. (the EKTORP one, you know, that one that *everyone* has. Or does that go for all IKEA furniture? ;)) I’ve finished 10 big squares, and now I need to make 10 more but with different colors to match the size of the footstool. Then all I have to do is crochet a border around it, and use it! :) A little schematic of what I’m planning:
Excuse my weird mock-up skills, but this is what I’m planning. So as you can see, I need another 10 to finish. But it’s those 10 that I’m not sure about. I really want to keep the outer border of them white, as I don’t want the hocker to look too crowded, and I want to keep the white in the middle rounds to keep it even. But I DON’T want the same pink/purple colors in the center! What do I do… ? I was thinking maybe keep the pink and substitute the purple with a light green. I’m not sure tho. What do you think? :)
Alright, I am off to do some work on the Instagram granny challenge, or as we have affectionately called it; the Instagrafghans ;) So I’m leaving you with the October mosaic to look at! :)
