Build Your Own Book!

People keep asking me if I’ve ever thought of compiling some of my patterns into a book. It’s a great idea, but it just seems like a lot of work on my end. 😉

So, I’ve got a new deal running in my Ravelry shop only: buy three or more patterns at once and automatically get 20% off your entire order. No coupon code needed, and no rush – this is the new standard for this shop!

Time to get shopping!

Social Butterfly

Did you know you can find me around the ‘net on various social sites? I’m surprised too!

Like my Facebook page to get updates on what’s going on – alerts to new blog posts and pattern releases, for the most part. I almost never post there more than once a day, so you needn’t worry about it clogging up your feed!

Follow me on Twitter for those same updates, plus more Tweets about what I’ve got to offer, or other crochet-related thoughts I might have. Like with Facebook, though, I don’t Tweet so often that it’ll fill your feed (almost like I have a pet peeve for that sort of thing, or something!)

I was sucked in my Pinterest by you, dear followers! With all of the incoming links from there, I just had to check it out. Generally, I pin all of my patterns, plus other patterns and projects I like. I also keep a wishlist there, in case any of my family are reading this! ^_-

Finally, I’ve recently joined Instagram. There I post pictures of pattern samples, as well as yarn-craft-related pictures from my day. (There’s also the occasional picture of ridiculous things. I just can’t resist!) Generally, I don’t post more than once a day there.

August Sale on Ravelry

This month I’m having a sale in my Ravelry shop – get 40% off your entire order when you buy three or more patterns at once.

Buy 3+ patterns, get 40% off

I am often asked if I’ve ever thought of making a book of crochet patterns. The answer is yes, but I haven’t because, well, *I* don’t buy books of crochet patterns (except for motif books).

With this sale, though, you can build your own book! Include all of the patterns you like, and get the kind of “bulk” discount you’d get if they were actually in a book.

So hit up my Ravelry Shop and start adding patterns to your cart! You don’t even need a Ravelry account or a coupon code to make it work. ^_^

Here are some of my favourites:
Nebula Blanket Star Burst ASA Baby 9
Fireworks It's A Plus Jacob's Snakes and Ladders
