Always appreciate the help

Do you have questions, comments or feedback about your Simply Cute or Simply Sweet crochet pattern. I'd love to hear from you and would really appreciate your help. I've recently added a Errata and Tutorial page to help ensure your pattern is easy to read, fun to make and helps you create a softie you'll love.

Thanks so much for your help and support. I want you to love making these sweeties as much as I love creating them.

E-Books on Ravelry

E-Books now available in my Ravelry Store. It just didn't seem fair that I couldn't add a feature that allowed me to give away a free pattern so I set up some E-Books. The books contain 4 patterns and are priced at $14.85 so your getting a pattern free. Book 1 includes patterns for: Simply Cute Bear, Bunny, Cat and Dog. Book 2 includes patterns for: Simply Cute Elephant, Lamb, Pig and Lion. A new book will be available as soon as I finish my next pattern (not sure what he or she will be yet).

Heavy Snow Day

We sure have been spoiled this year with just a little snow and mild temperatures. It's been so nice in fact, I almost forgot what February in Illinois was supposed to be like until yesterday. We got hit with some nice heavy, snowball packing snow. The flakes where about the size of potato chips. It was definitely pretty this morning if you didn't have to drive. I was lucky and got to see it from my kitchen window while finishing up my newest pattern. What do you think. Are there any monkey lovers are there?

Gotta Have a Frog

This sweet frog's face definitely makes me smile. I'm thrilled add him to my "Simply Sweet" Crochet collection. Hope you like him. I think his feet and bent knees are great. He works up quickly with basic stitches, worsted weight yarn and a size F crochet hook. His pattern is available for immediate download from my Ravelry or Craftsy Shop. PDF's are also available from The Wool Purl on Etsy.

With its friendly owners, welcoming decor, beautiful yarns, handcrafted spindles, accessories and vintage finds, I'm sure this shop is quickly going to become a "favorite". I know I'll be there (a lot).

New Pattern Series

Can't help it. I love her. Along with cute "pick me up" faced bears and huggable critters, I have a soft spot for primitives and folk art. I've been trying to think of a way to incorporate a little folk art into my crochet patterns without staining them and turning them into...well, a mess.

I think I've found a way to add a little without it being to much. Sweet bunny is the first pattern in my new "Simply Sweet" series. She's a bit more whimsical and folksy then my other patterns and I hope you enjoy meeting her. She's now on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy (how fun by the way).

Let me know what you think.
