There's no denying that I'm a little obsessed with mug cozies. Ever since I began crocheting, I've been making and sharing these lovely adorable mug cozies with everyone I know. They're so quick and easy to make, and every coffee or tea drinker will love it! It doubles as a coaster so you wont burn your hands or ruin your table!

Deep Sea Fingerless Gloves - Free Crochet Pattern

 Hey there everybody! 

You're probably wondering why I haven't been around much the past few weeks. Well, I've been working on getting myself organized (my blog, house, life in general). My active 2 year old (who refuses to nap!) and 5 month old are keeping me pretty busy as well. 

Of course I wouldn't come back without an awesome free pattern to share! Not only that, but I am also hosting my very first giveaway!! These fingerless gloves were so fun and easy to make, I hope you enjoy how simple the pattern is. They're so fun and quick to make that I'm offering two pairs of Deep Sea Fingerless Gloves for two of my lucky Facebook fans!

All you have to do to enter is scroll down to the giveaway box and 'Like' my Facebook page! Want an extra entry? Leave me a comment about what you'd like to see more of. I'm looking forward to your responses!

Simple Stash Buster Fingerless Gloves Free Pattern!

These fingerless gloves were my attempt to use up some of the pretty sock yarn I had lying around. After organizing my yarn room this past week, I discovered so much more than I thought I had! I loved this green and purple yarn, but I wasn't quite sure what to do with it on its own. So I headed over to my "wall of yarn", chose a light cream color, and got to work!

Fingerless gloves are my go-to pattern right now, they're easy and quick to make. With a bigger hook and simple stitches, you can pop on a tv show and have a pair done in no time!

My 2014 Resolutions

Happy New Year All!! 


I had a hard time narrowing down my resolutions, which is why I am doing this late. There is just SO much that I want to accomplish this year, not only on this blog, but referring to my bad eating and exercising habits, and probably too lax cleaning schedule, as well. 

But when I'm just thinking about this blog and the direction I want to take it in, there is a ton that I want to change! So in an effort to keep to my goals for this year I'm setting it in stone (well.. in a post).

Here are my 2014 Blogging Resolutions

  • To become more familiar with HTML and coding
  • To do a complete redesign of my website
  • Update some old posts with new (better) pictures and text
  • Post at least 1-2x per week
  • Share 2-3 free patterns on my Facebook page a day 
  • Get more viewers/followers/fans on Facebook 

Hopefully this year will bring big things for this Hippy Hooker.
