Happy February! How has the crafty year started off for you? January was a bit of a doozy for me in my personal life with tons of things happening that were both good and bad. I had lots of houseguests, stayed very busy, got way too stressed, let my personal boundaries get a little too trampled, got sick and then took the time to crochet, heal and re-establish my center of personal wellbeing. And during all of that, I kept on blogging!
Hoje eu tenho o ajuntamento de tudo o que foi neste blog crochê em janeiro, em caso de você perdeu quaisquer mensagens na primeira vez.
The Big News
The most exciting thing that happened this month was that I launched the fundraising campaign for my next book and multi-media project, que é chamado Gancho para curar.
Claro, I shared several mensagens related to this on the blog:
- Example of a Crochet-for-Creativity Exercise
- How to Get Your Ad in Front of Thousands of Crochet Lovers Today
- How to Get an Advance Copy of Hook to Heal
- Get Crochet-Based Creativity Coaching Through Email
Some more big news of the month was that I ran a special free-on-Kindle promotion of Crochet Saved My Life for one long weekend and then dropped the price permanently from the former price of $9.99 to the new Kindle price of just $2.99.
E finalmente, I issued a challenge to try to get crochet represented more on Pinterest. Anyone who pinned my book’s cover image and left me a comment with their Pinterest handle was someone I’d go follow and pin items for. You can still do this!
One of the themes of this month was crochet shawls. The posts related to that, which I hope you found inspiring, foram:

I shared the work of reader Pamela who also offered us a padrão de chapéu de crochê livre. There were some quirks with the pattern and that gave me a great opportunity to write a post explaining how an experienced crocheter can make assumptions to work out a pattern that’s not quite making sense.
