Patterns are getting a revamp

I have been thinking over the past few days about my patterns. The are easy to make and people love them for that but I think I can make them better. Definitely need better pictures and maybe more of them in the pdf.
I hope new patterns pop in my head during this process. What would you like to see?

Etsy Treasury

I just made an etsy treasury... i love making them. this one is about food :) there are 2 items made by me in this treasury.

awesome tutorial!

I just found this blog called craftybegonia . the post I was reading was about how to use crochet hooks with knitting needles.  I have wanted to learn to knit for a while now. I know how to cast on and knit a row but thats about it..lol iI will definitely be trying her technique out :) It seams quite easy to follow. oh did I mention she has pictures of each step for use visual peeps :)  I do have to say this reminds me of knooking. Its basically using an crochet hook with a string at the other end that serves as the other "needle". to each their own i guess. everyone has a certain way of doing their thang... yeah I said thang...lol

She also has a few scarfs I want to make as well.
