Christmas and Crochet-A-Long is just around the corner!!


Wow… Just 4 1/2 weeks and Christmas will be here!!! I better get going on my crochet projects… I need to keep my fingers working,,, This is the busiest season for crochet sales…  Hats are flying off the shelf… Once the season starts to change and we get chilly days, Hats are my biggest seller…  But, as far as  having a great variety, Children’s items are great too!  So this morning I started a great Sweet Baby Hoodie  by Bernat Design Studio, not only is it cute,,, but it is a free pattern… I would love to put a couple of these in the shop for Christmas shoppers!

I also have started a pair of knitted socks for my daughter… Last year she asked me to make her a pair with Christmas Yarn… I didn’t have time last year,,, So I thought I would give it a try for this year… Several years ago I took a knitting class at the Jr College here for Sock Knitting… So much fun!  One of the best parts that came out of it (besides learning how to knit socks) was I got the job as an adjunct crochet teacher for the college… One of the best jobs I ever scored… Not only did I get to teach what I love,,, but I was paid a nice fee for it too!



My start of Knitted Christmas socks…


Another fun new part of Beatrice Ryan Designs… I opened  a CAL (Crochet A Long) group on Ravelry…  As you know,,, We are taking a vote for a Viewer’s Choice CAL starting in January 2014… If you are interested in the CAL,,, The pattern will be posted here each week starting in January  and you can cast your vote at the top of this page by clicking on the Crochet-A-Long tab,,,, And you also can follow along and be part of a large group over on Ravelry…  Click here to join in at Ravelry!
