Learn to say no to the unimportant and remove the chaos from my life. This helps me focus my energies on forward motion.
Today, I choose to stay in charge of me, not let the outside world control me. (Guess it’s why I don’t care much about watching TV, especially reality TV shows.)
As I continue to plan out fall projects, I realize I haven’t shared freebies for quite a long time. So. here are a few. Melanie Gibbons aka PinkLemon just released Mermaid’s Escape rectangular shawl pattern. It’s FREE through August 15, 11:59 PM CDT! No promo code needed! You do need to click “Use a coupon code” at Buy It Now. Total will be adjusted to FREE.
Crochet anyone? Baroness – 12″ Square pattern—part of a Royal Family design collection–is FREE ’til August 16th. Coupon code at check-out is: baroness (pattern rated “easy.”) Don’t you just love the textured center created by interlocking chains, surrounded by V-stitches? I am going for a timeless, classic afghan using silver and grey or beige/ivory combination. How about you?
I know I’ve said I wouldn’t knit another boxy sweater. This is just so dang cute and inviting with added color splashes. Did you see the pockets? Avignon pattern is a free download. No coupon needed.
I share free patterns on my Facebook page regularly. Like the page (HandstitchStudio) if you don’t want to miss the limited-time offers. Pictured WIP is a hooded lace cardigan on needles. Sadly I am running out of the specific yarn and am contemplating what to do next–black current for the hood, perhaps. What do you think? Yay or nay?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
