Sometimes the crochet community really amazes me with the things they make, and other times I wonder why someone felt the need to crochet their apple a cardigan.
So in the 2 weeks since I created this side blog it’s already reached well over 200 followers which is crazy/awesome!
This has prompted me to give it a nice theme and an “about” section. Feel free to give that a read if you want to know:
– Who’s running this blog
– How I tag for easy searching
I’ve got a pretty great lineup of patterns in store, and tons of great fall/halloween patterns, which I’m pretty excited about.
I hope you’re enjoying the patterns, and as always, feel free to drop me an ask if there’s more of something you’d like to see.
So Every Year I go to a Yarn Event that my city puts on and I have a great time browsing the really great indie dyers, makers, etc…
It’s pretty big and there’s lots of classes and demo’s but I’ve never gone to those before, and I figured, hey, maybe this year I’ll try one of the classes… So I check their listings and there’s a “intro to drop spindle” class…. it’s $90 and doesnt include the cost of materials.
So You’re required to bring your own spindle and roving, and pay $90 on top of that.
The other classes are even more expensive.
It’s things like this that make me shake my head when I hear older yarnies ask me why ‘young people’ arent as interested in yarn crafts anymore. Like…. make it more accessible and not outrageously expensive, and maybe you’ll see a difference.
Most of us are drowning in debts, and it’s a hobby, for shits sake. I mean, most of the things you need to get started are available on youtube or internet tutorials.
