Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Setting Up For Future Contests

Howdy Everyone!
As soon as I started this blog, I had it in mind to host contests. I haven't gotten around to doing any yet, but I'm working on it.
About a month ago, I started using Inlinkz for my link parties and I really like how they work. There is a voting option, so I am hoping that I can use them for my contests as well.
I don't know about you, but I learn by doing. And if you read my blog often, you probably know that I tend to jump into things like this with both feet first.
Well, this time... I think I'll dip my foot in.
That's what this post is about.

I am going to set up as I would for a link party, but I am making it way shorter and I am enabling voting.
This is where you come in.
I am going to link up a couple of my posts and I am going to try to link a couple of pics from Photobucket.

Hopefully this works.
If it does, I would love for you to "vote" on them. Please try to vote for at least one of them more than once. You should be able to vote 10 times in one day for each submission. (not that I expect you to do that! lol)
You aren't really, truly, voting on anything. This is purely for my own research.
Voting will be on Wednesday, and I hope to get results on Thursday.
If it works the way I hope it does, please be on the lookout for my first super exciting contest!

Thank you all so much for your help!



  1. I like to learn by doing too!

    Not sure my votes are counting though... If I click "Vote" then it refreshes this page and still says I have ten votes left. If I click the photo, it takes me to the post or place the photo is hosted... But, maybe the thingy is tallying them up as I click?

    1. Thanks for your input! Hmmm... I just logged in and I can't see votes, but I don't know if they are just hidden from me until the end... I will try to get a few more people to click on them and then I will see when voting ends. Crossing my fingers it works! :-)


I love getting feedback from my readers!
