It’s My Birthday, Let’s Celebrate!

Posted in Fun Ramblings, News on July 1st, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 20 Comments

Yup, that’s right! I’m getting older as I type this. But with age, comes another year well lived and lots of crochet projects checked off the to-do list. Although I do not have any extravagant plans, and will probably go about my day as usual, I think this year I’ll celebrate by wearing my birthday cake hat around the house. It will give me much joy to watch my dogs tilt their heads at me and give me goofy looks. My cats may even try and swat at the candles. Best of all, it will remind my family that it’s my birthday and they have to make dinner and clean the dishes instead of me!

30% OFF Crochet Patterns for Accessories

Posted in News on June 27th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

It’s summer time in my part of the world and I’m ready to crochet a few quick, small projects! Larger projects are great to crochet too, if you’re sitting inside with the air conditional blasting, but with the warmth of summer the smaller projects seem to be ideal. To kick things off, I’ve discounted all of the crochet patterns in the Accessories section, which are all fun small projects. Crochet patterns include jewelry, fingerless gloves, barefoot sandals (great for the beach!), and even mittens, socks and booties (to get ready for winter). All crochet patterns in the accessories section are now 30% OFF!

Do You Sell Items Made from Crochet Spot Patterns?

Posted in News on June 11th, 2016 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

If you sell crocheted items that are made from any Crochet Spot patterns, I would love to add you to a directory I’m creating. Often times non-crocheters see a Crochet Spot pattern and would like to purchase the finished item. However, I do not always have the time to make the items. If you use Crochet Spot patterns often and even sell the finished items already, I would love to add you to a list I’m creating so that non-crocheters can easily find someone who can crochet a pattern for them.

If you would like to be added to this free directory, please email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Your full name and business name (if you have one)
  • Link to your online shop (Etsy shop, personal website, Facebook page, etc.) so that folks can see your work
  • Email address, which will appear publicly in the directory
  • 2 – 3 sentences about yourself and/or your crochet work, to be displayed with your information
  • List the patterns that you enjoy crocheting the most. These patterns will be noted so that customers can choose a crocheter that matches their needs.

If you have any questions about this directory, feel free to let me know!

An Honest Review of the Yarnit

Posted in Fun Ramblings, News on June 2nd, 2016 by Rachel Choi – 12 Comments

Is that a magical, crystal ball with yarn I see?? No, it’s the Yarnit! It’s a nifty, new gadget for holding your yarn while you crochet (or knit). The yarn sits inside the globe so that it doesn’t roll around on the floor or get dirty. You can use it at home, but it’s also great for folks who like to travel with their projects. Is the Yarnit for you? With any item there are always pros and cons, and in this review I’ll share with you my honest opinion.
