Done Like Dinner ~ No Fooling :)

Don’t know about y’all but March came in like a lion here and tried its damnedest to go out that way too. Fortunately, it’s just rain that’s teeming down at the moment and getting rid of the remnants of snow and ‘snirt’.

The end of March is the end of National Crochet Month and I’m super stoked about my FO’s this year. I’m pretty sure I’ve hooked more in the last month than I normally do in six! I have five FO’s and one ‘also ran’. I’ve yet to snag more of the YP yarn to finish what was project two and I really don’t want to end it where it is – OCD alert.

So, on this first of April, here are all of the crochet things! 🙂

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 51,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Deep Breath…

Hello All,

I don’t have any new pictures just this moment, though I can say that “Carnelian” is coming along nicely.

I did want to let you know (with butterflies in my stomach) that I’ve taken the plunge and started a little space on Facebook for PSPRP. I’m hoping that you’ll feel welcome to “like” the page (and the real me too!) and will feel free to chat, share or buy. There is an integrated shopping cart with access to PayPal.

I took the leap to have “one stop shop” that is easy for folks who may not be bloggers or Ravelry people to find me 🙂 The link is just below, I hope you’ll like the content and will feel free to share it. Please know that your support is much appreciated – ’cause I am nervous as all get out! Facebook is quite different from the smaller community of WordPress or Blogger.

Hope to see you there!

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

This is so much fun to share! I knew my blog had grown since importing over here from Blogger last year (you can still find the original as “So Many Vices, So Little Time” there. I’m surprised and really happy about how much 🙂

Thank you all for making it a really fun year in blogging, crafting and friendship ❤

The men of knitting. It’s wonderful to see men coming back to the fold – no pun – Sheep? Fold? Get it?

Fine. I’ll keep my day job.

This is a great article about Josh Bennett (click the photo or his name to view). His style, his method and how he recently shook up the knit world.

Aside

Six Hundred and four visits to Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl yesterday…

Already (at almost 6:00AM) another eighty-five!

I have to say, I’m a little gobsmacked at the activity and I very much appreciate when someone takes time out of their busy day to visit.

Thank you for stopping by and do feel free to say hello in a comment or message if there is a particular post that you liked.
