Learn More About Fox T-Shirt Yarn

Fox Yarn sent me some of their T-Shirt yarn to test out (in exchange for my honest review).

I loved working with it. The color selection is awesome and the yarn is soft and sturdy. It’s perfect for baskets, purses, and other objects where you need structure.

In Love With These Blocking Mats

I was sent these Blocking Mats by WooLove to test out for free.

I am in love with these things, they are my new go-to mat for blocking everything. I won’t spoil the review with spoilers, but I love the grid lines!

I used these to block the Sweet Stripes Hooded Scarf so you’ll see a cameo of the scarf in the video. See why these are my new favorites by watching the video above.

I’m On A Roll ~ Another Free Pattern Tutorial

I don’t make new year’s resolutions, but I did set a few goals for my website, shops and youtube channel.

Goal #1: Clean house.

My pattern shops are overflowing. I’m an organization junkie, and all the patterns are driving me crazy. So, to help clear some out, I’m retiring some of the patterns.

But wait, I’m not removing them totally.

Instead, I’m going to make videos (if there aren’t videos for them already) and make them FREE! Then the paid patterns will be easier to navigate and you get the benefit of me not being able to let go of the hard work I’ve put into these patterns.

So that leads me to goal #2.

Goal #2: Post more videos.

Don’t you love when you can kill two birds with one stone?

I’ve been slacking on my youtube channel.

I haven’t posted a motif of the month since I think October?

Now with my cleaning house, it’s giving me a new push and is helping add videos to my channel. While the motifs of the month are on hiatus, I will be substituting with some much better (I think) pattern tutorials.

Plus, I’m asking you guys what you want to see with the current giveaway.

So that leads me to the newest free pattern workshop:

One Skein Arches Cowl

This guy is a part of my One Skein Cowl ebook. Along with the Mobius Cowl, I’m working on turning every cowl in the book into a free pattern workshop.
