Hello! This post will be a little different than some for a few reasons so let’s just jump into it.
- The one writing this right now is NOT actually Mary Beth Temple. Hi, my name is Alysha and I am the official social media manager for Hooked For Life Publishing! I’ve been working for Mary Beth since October of last year and I think it might be time to introduce myself, so hello everyone! While Mary Beth handles all the crocheting and knitting and sewing, I’ve been behind the scenes keeping her social media up to date with all of her projects. Do you follow us yet on Instagram and Facebook? If not, take a second to go follow! https://www.instagram.com/hooked4lifellc/ https://www.facebook.com/hookedforlifepublishing
- While I do a bit of writing I am actually completely new to blogging so I do hope you’ll bear with me on that one.
- This is the first round-up post (I think) that has been up on the H4L blog! (How exciting?!)
So, you might be thinking at this point (or you might not), what IS a round-up post? A round-up post is a way that creators can, for lack of better terms, round up different patterns and projects and compile them all together into one place. It’s a perfect way to shout out to other creators, share others’ work, and really showcase other creators in the knitting/crocheting/sewing community.
If you knew that going into this post, great! We’re on the same page. If not, well now you learned something new and I hope you enjoy these types of posts because we plan on having a lot more of them!
When we first started talking about what types of projects to round up, we came up with the idea of using a calendar. Not just any calendar mind you, but the national calendars that have all the wacky “holidays” on them that sound made up. You’d be surprised how many there are for almost every single day of the year and some days have multiple! So we chose a few that looked fun to us and got to work collecting patterns and projects from fellow knitters and crocheters. Some of the patterns below will be free patterns and others won’t be so keep that in mind as you’re choosing which one to be your next project!
Without further ado, I give you our first round up for June (which actually is kind of a two parter when you think about it):
June 11th is National Make Life Beautiful Day! Here are 20+ crochet patterns to brighten things up and add a bit of serotonin to your life! Let’s jump into it, shall we?
