Wanting to wish all of my blog readers a Happy New Year. I have decided that with the new year it was a great time to give my blog and Etsy shop a new look. I have created a new logo for myself. So over the next couple of days, please pardon my mess. I will be rearranging and hopefully making my blog a bit easier to navigate. So, as a Thank you for pardoning my makeover mess I am running a 20% off special on all of my patterns.
All of my patterns can be found on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/carlinda-lewis

Coupon codes are good until 11:59 pm, Eastern Standard Time 1/5/11. I also plan on gradually giving some of my older patterns makeovers as well. Some of them need to be recrocheted in different colors and new pictures are definitely in order. Most of the pictures were taken with my camcorder as my camera had broke. Hubby has since purchased me a new camera. I also have learned how to use a lightbox. It is a great way to take pictures of crochet work. Especially Caron Simply soft yarn which has a sheen that is difficult to photograph.
On my hook now is Childrens sizes for the Fuzzy Wuzzy slipper pattern, with a mens version to follow. The Men's and boys sizes will not have fun fur. Can you just see all our dear hubby's running around the house with the marabou look,, tehehe..
I am really looking forward to the new year. I will have lots of new patterns coming out in the next month or two. Lots of ideas of projects floating around my head as well. My goal for my Ravelry and Etsy shop is to have 5,000 patterns sold in the year of 2011. My hubby and I have also set a goal for our selves for this year. We are saving to put in a pool at our house. Not only is it nice to have one in Florida, but I will use it as well for my Crohn's. Part of the disease is having arthritis in my SI joints and walking in a pool helps immensely. So, all of my pattern sales will go to our Pool Fund. It is great to have goals and it is what keeps me motivated. They saying is "do what you love and the rest will follow". I am doing what I love to do, crocheting and creating patterns that I have envisioned. I truly appreciate every single time someone decides to purchase a pattern from my shops. It is an honor to me when someone takes their time and yarn to create something I have designed. For that, Thank you. From my hook to yours, Carlinda Lewis~The Hook Hound.
