Thank you for your interest in checking out
This is 'officially' a blog. However, it is set up as a website. There are quite a few free patterns and tutorials. There are also posts, articles and lots of projects interspersed if you want to look back through the blog posts. I love that Blogger allows blogs to have 'pages' so that a blog can be set up as a website.
Please enjoy your visit here at RoseRed Designs.
For those that are interested in my 'pay for' patterns they can be found at both Etsy and Ravelry. Ravelry offers instant downloads and has a library option. Etsy requires that you must wait for me to receive your order before it can be sent out via email. Etsy is looking into instant downloads of purchased patterns. I do not know when they will offer this.
If you look at the side bar to the right you'll find direct links to articles and free patterns.
You'll also see my Pinterest disclaimer. Please feel free to pin my projects and patterns to Pinterest. I only ask that you do not pin any of my personal pictures - especially those with children in them. I'd hate to have to go through the blog posts and have to remove any of them.
And a couple of shout outs...
If you haven't already found Crochetville I suggest that you check it out. It's a wonderful community of crocheters and an amazing resource for anyone who loves yarn. It's one of my most favorite places on the web.
Jimbo makes the most amazing wood hooks. I have several and they are awesome to work with. He generally does auctions but you can contact him for custom work as well. He also came up with a great specialty hook that was named the 'Hook Awl' in a contest he held. They come in 2 sizes and they're super sharp and pointy for working into fabric.
If you crochet - Ravelry is an amazing resource for patterns, ideas, yarn information, etc. It has it's own forums - I don't belong to any of them but for those that are interested - it's there. I have my bookmark set to the 'New Patterns' page. It's a great way to get a look at what's been uploaded recently.
