I’m so excited to announce January as the
Official “Make it for Me” Month!
We (crocheters) made it through another holiday season! Whew right? Some of you are probably still working on getting the finishing touches on a few aren’t ya?
Give yourself a big ole’ pat on the back because I know so many of you worked really hard on those Christmas presents! I hope everyone appreciated your time, effort and especially love that went into every stitch, but I think “It’s Time for You”!
If you see the title, you’ll notice it says, “Make it for Me”. What exactly does that mean? Well, we all know that most of us rarely make anything for ourselves, and I want that to change (at least for the month of January). I was speaking with my good friend, Jan, who is also the owner of our local yarn store in town called Yarnhouse Studio. We were talking about how busy everyone was during November and December getting those Christmas presents finished when Jan suggested we should make January the official “Make it for Me” month! I will actually be having a “Make it for Me” day at Yarnhouse Studio! More details on the date to follow, but I would love for anyone local to me (Opelika, Alabama) to come hang out and let’s crochet together!
Here’s how it will work…..
I’ve partnered with some other fabulous crochet designers in the industry, and they will be sharing a free pattern they consider worthy of being a “Make it for Me” project. One project everyday for the month of January
You will also have the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes! The sponsors loved the idea of “Make it for Me” and graciously supplied prizes as a way to show you how much they appreciate your passion for crochet. Without YOU, none of this would be possible and we want to say thank you and encourage you to finally do something for YOU!
I hope during the month that you’ll find that one project that catches your eye and dedicate the time to make it for yourself! Be sure to share this post with all your fellow crocheters! Can you imagine how “big” this event could really get if everyone got involved? Who knows…..maybe we can start an official trend with every January being known to everyone as the official “Make it for Me” month!
So…..get ready for a month full of fun….Don’t forget to SHARE with everyone that crochets because it’s going to be GREAT!!
I will also have a page dedicated to all the projects for those of you that want to see everything in one place and it will update as projects are added. The page will not start updating until January 1st!
If you want a fun place to hang out and talk about all these projects, join me and some other yarnie friends in the ELK Studio Crocheters’ Facebook group!
