TTMT #594 – Positive Attitude

A number of people have reached out and asked how I’m managing my repetitive stress injury (RSI) with all the crocheting. Early this year, my primary care physician recommended fish oil to help keep my cholesterol in check. It has had the rather amazing side effect of REALLY helping with my RSI and with arthritis in general. I’m not recommending it to you because it’s also a blood thinner (see cholesterol comment above) and I’m obviously not a doctor. That’s my secret, though, and I have no complaints about that!

Correction from last week: I think I told you all that the hats I’ve been making start with an 8″ circle and go from there. They do not! They start with a 6″ circle. Sorry about that.

Halloween Round-up!

Hello, my dear friends!

I haven’t shared anything aside from Talk To Me Tuesday since having surgery, and since it is October, my favorite month, I couldn’t resist doing a roundup of my own Halloween and fall patterns and tutorials!

I’ve included both Free Patterns & Retired shop patterns below. As a compromise for those who want access to my previously for sale patterns, I will share the pattern of your choice for a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit. More info below with the Retired Patterns.

To date, wonderful quilters have donated over $300 to a wide variety of charities, donated food, clothing, and hundreds of masks to those who need them. Your charitable efforts make my heart swell with happiness and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

What are your favorite things to make for Halloween? I’d love to see! Let me know in comments or share over in the Sewhooked Facebook Group! You can also tag me on Instagram – @sewhookedjen.

RETIRED SHOP PATTERNS

I retired my online quilt pattern shop December 31, 2019 but I still receive quite a few requests for retired patterns.I decided the best way to address that was to have those interested in a retired pattern make a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit of your choice. Email your receipt and I’ll be happy to send the pattern. Please, only one pattern per receipt. 

If you’re unsure if a pattern is FREE (I have loads of those, check out the main menu on sewhooked.com), or RETIRED, just drop me an email or comment and I’ll let you know.

Free Pattern Friday – Coconut Candy Crochet Baby Blanket

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today is the final freebie for the month of May designed especially for The Linus Connection.

In the distant, far, far away time of 2005, my website was called Jen’s Crochet & Crafts. There were at that time, way more crochet than crafts, and the very beginning of my quilting adventures!

Coconut Candy was posted to that long ago web site and has been along for the ride ever since. I’ve made several for The Linus Connection over the years, some multicolored, some not.

Working on today’s post led me to revisit my Ravelry page, something I haven’t done in a long, long time. I spent a little time there updating links and making sure all the patterns actually went somewhere. It seems a long time ago that I was almost exclusively designing crochet projects!

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s yummy pattern. ♥
