This year I decided that it would be a great idea for us all to focus on trying out something new, 12 new somethings actually, as we are going to look at a different craft each month. That way people can pick and mix the crafts that they want to try out and then on other months maybe even offer their expertise on crafty subjects that they are good at.
This will mean that each month there will be special posts featuring that particular craft, so that you have some direction and tips to get you started. There will be book and class reviews, highlights of blogs featuring that craft, beginners’ guides, giveaways and as we progress through the year maybe even a little competition or two to get excited about!
So for January I have settled on crochet, partly because although I have done some crochet before, the time has come to get more proficient and to expand my skills, she says confidently! Don’t worry, I will be probably be the first person that gets her single, double and treble stitch all in a loop 😉
If you are willing to join me in this endeavor then please leave a comment below letting me know if crochet is something that you would like to try or even to let me know what other crafts you would like to see featured in the months ahead. I don’t have the full 12 months mapped out yet, so there is still plenty of time to make suggestions.
To get us started, there will be a very nice crochet beginner’s guide up for grabs on Friday in our book giveaway, so stay tuned people, and if you don’t ever want to miss a post consider signing up for my RSS feed.
