About MeHi! I'm Melissa. I'm a twenty-something at-home mom with four boys seven and under. I'm LDS, I homeschool, and I knit, crochet, sew, cook, draw, write, and generally hold down the fort while my husband pursues dreams filled with motorcycles. We're either genuinely insane or the sanest people you'll ever meet. Stick around and find out which it is!
Monday Morning Link Party: IV
Today I’m working on a submission for 101 Crochet One-Skein Wonders. I’m really optimistic about my chances of getting something accepted, as I have often joked that I am a pro at making something unexpectedly awesome out of minimal materials. We’re not supposed to show our project to anyone in case it gets selected, but I think this lovely photo is safe. Can you guess what I’m making? (HINT: IT’S CROCHETED! Hahaha.)
Other than that, things are pretty relaxed around here this week. And do you know why? I am on cloud 9 because in the week since its release, there have been more than 32,000 hits on Crochetvolution. Isn’t that unbelievable?! I am just delighted with the responses it has received, and everyone seems to be (almost) as excited as I am to see how the Winter issue will shape up. I’m already writing for it.
Okay, okay, enough about my projects, let’s check out the links! How about a little owl, for starters?
What a smart alternative to pulling your sleeves over your fingers! I could have used these during my years in the marching band. Pull back to expose fingers during songs, pull up to cover fingers in between. (Flute, before you ask. Although I did march with a trombone one year. Trombone: one of the few wind instruments you can actually play wearing mittens.)
It’s a magical combination of tarp and quilt, you guys. How great would this be for the beach? Or Shakespeare in the park? Or sitting on the ground outside in places where water on the grass means dew or rain, and not that the sprinklers were on a few minutes ago?
Sigh. Now I want to go find this mythical “Willowdale,” dress my toddlers in long-sleeved plaid shirts and sit outside in the autumn air feeding ducks. But then, I pretty much feel like that every day.
