It’s time to kick off Day 10 of the “Make it for Me” projects! You’ve survived the holidays and now It’s Time for You! For the entire month of January, I will bring you FREE patterns from amazing designers in the crochet industry. One of the great parts of “Make it for Me” is the designer will tell you exactly what that project means to him/her and why it is considered perfect for you too! Take a few minutes to check it out and decide if this crochet pattern is the one that you’ll dedicate to make for yourself. If this is your first time here, you can find out the details about how “Make it for Me” works HERE. Be sure to scroll all the way down because I have an announcement of a local “Make it for Me” event in my home town!
I’ve never thought of making myself something like this….but it’s a great idea! Lisa from Kaleidoscope Art & Gifts thinks her Soakin’ It Up Hair towel pattern is the perfect “Make it for Me” project. She said, “Why I want to make it for myself: I’ve owned various “absorbent hair towels” over the years and love how convenient they are to wrap up my wet hair while allowing me to continue to multitask. When it came time to replace my most recent one, I decided to try my hand at designing a crocheted version and I have to say that I love it even more than the microfiber ones. By using 100% cotton yarn the absorbency factor increases and this way I can choose my own colors too. Though I got to try out my prototype once, it didn’t stay in my possession long, my teenage daughter commandeered it and now I need to make myself another one!”

Local “Make it for Me” Event
Also, I want to announce that I will be having a local “Make it for Me” Crochet Day hosted by Yarnhouse Studio! If you leave near or around Opelika, Alabama, I would love for you to join us on January 23, 2015! I’ll be there at 10 am! Is there an end time? Well I just don’t know yet….We may close the place down if we are having so much fun! If you are interested in coming, please let me know. I would love a “head count”. You can find the address and other information on the Yarnhouse Studio website! Click HERE to join the official invite! I would encourage all of you to form your own “Make it for Me” event at your local yarn store, coffee shop, etc. Let’s just take at least one day out of the month to celebrate US!
