Octagon and Tunisian Cowl

Look what I found! I designed this, and it was scheduled to be published like 3 years ago. It was never published and the company that bought it no longer exists. Pretty funky, huh? Any votes on what I should do with it? Put it in Crochet! ? Self-publish? Put it in storage as a remnant of the past?
Is it too funky for mainstream? Maybe that's why it was never published ;)

I spotted this lovely crocheted sweater at a Luncheon on Sunday. I love spotting crochet "in the wild".

I'm researching today! I'm practicing and sketching a technique that I am not terribly experienced with. Because... it's going to show up on Knit & Crochet Now.  So, I'd better learn it! 

What techniques would you like shown on the tv show?

I'm on Instagram!
I admit that half of my Instagram entries are running related but I'm trying to post more on crochet things too. Also, I post the kids more often on there. Friend me if you like! I'm GoCrochet.

Right now, my profile picture looks like this:

So you'll know it's me!

Blog Reading Evolution

Just a random thought about reading blogs... why do YOU read blogs? What are you looking for? Are you looking for something specific?

It seems that when people read blogs they are looking for:

1. Free patterns
2. Project Tutorials
3. Color Inspiration
4. Reviews of new books/products

Lately, I have been seeing blogs that make me laugh out loud. :)  I guess I want to be entertained these days! 

When you look at the above list... what are you looking for in a blog? Are there other things I should add to the list?

Are blogs still popular? Let's discuss!

This blog has totally been neglected since I began working for Crochet!  But, in general, (having nothing to do with my blog)... have blogs lost popularity as a crochet resource?  Do you read more blogs than a year or two ago? Fewer blogs than a year or two ago?
Do you want to tell me about some great crochet blogs you DO read? What do you love about them?
Let's discuss!
