I have been planning on updsting my Etsy page but I could never get it together. However, now I have been doing well with the social media marketing. Now I have to work on this blog. Lord please help me. I struggle with what to say and topics to write about. I have a lot in my head but it never comes together on the blog. So tonight I will just rejoice in being able to keep up with my Etsy shop and I have posted 1 blog post a day, everyday for 2018. Stay tuned it will get better. #kathiscreations
I just completed a beautiful shawl pattern. This is a paid pattern by Tsvetomira Ruskova for Avarus. The pattern name is The Harika Cowl Vest. It was a quick work up and it only took a day and a half to finish. I modified mine by adding a row of single crochet around the edges to give it a cleaner edge. Without the single crochet edge it still had a fairly smooth look. I would definitely recommend this pattern to my fellow crocheters and I look forward to working this pattern up again. I plan to add this cute accessory to my Etsy page soon.
I am over the massive amounts of cookbooks (especially since I go to the internet for most things). So now I am going through all of my recipe books and see if there is anything that I just have to cook (so not in the house maker mood). Here is my first destash. I will be making it available for free local pickup as soon as I am done.
Well I was curious what that is so I googled it (google is my friend). Apparently there is a name for the unorganized planner (me, me, and I). Its a bullet journal!! I was super excited because all these years I have felt like a total failure. I buy the fancy calendar planners with all the cute tabs and sections and by February it is an expensive coaster or I am writing on pages in October. Ultimately I would revert back to uaing my Dollar Tree notepad (or now known as my bullet journal). I know it is something small but I found so much joy in learning about the bullet journal, I had to share. Failure no more.

I absolutely luv this pattern. It worked up easily. I used the Sweet Roll instead of the Caron Cakes. It took 2 and 1/2 skeins of thid yarn instead of the 2 for the Caron Cakes. I took 3 days (1 more then I wanted to) to finish this. I can’t wait to get this posted to my Etsy. These colors truly popped too (it is called Pixie Pop). #kathiscreations
