Red Heart Rocks!

As a blogger, I've learned that I could have a chance to try and review products for other companies for free. It just takes putting yourself out there and being confident with what you do. (which I'm working on) When I found out I might be able to get some free products from Red Heart (I already use their Red Heart Soft and Red Heart Super Saver a lot), I jumped on it! 

A week after sending them an email about my blog, I got back a response. 2 days later I was jumping up and down as my package arrived in the mail. There's nothing I love more than a good surprise, especially when it comes to yarn!

Here's what was in the box:

Super Simple Fingerless Gloves: Free Crochet Pattern!

Hello everyone! I've been getting a LOT of likes on my Facebook page and I just wanted to take a minute and say hi (: and also thank all of my wonderful readers. Without you I don't think I would be motivated to post so much. Thank you for keeping me motivated and inspired to keep going every day!

St Patty's Day Free Crochet Pattern Roundup!

St. Patty's day is right around the corner! To be honest, I'm not Irish, so we don't celebrate a huge amount for St. Patricks day, but that doesn't stop me from having a little bit of fun with the luck of the Irish!

Pattern Review: Granny Ripple Bag

When I found this pattern on Pinterest I was instantly attracted. Partly because I have an unhealthy obsession with large bags, and because I have an equally unhealthy obsession with granny squares. The colors the designer chose instantly drew me in, but it was the simplicity and easiness of the pattern that I really fell in love with.

Recent Finished Projects #3

Hey guys! These past 2 weeks have flown by for me. I've been so busy it's been hard for me to find time to crochet and blog! Sorry about that. You can thank my 5 month old who only sleeps when he feels like it, and my 2 year old who only naps once in a blue moon! I'm exhausted to say the least. 

It's taken me a little longer, but I do have a bunch of new crochet projects to share with you! I've been hooking whenever I can to try and save my sanity.
I also have a lot going on behind the scenes here at The Hippy Hooker. I've been working on a lot of new things, so it may seem like I'm missing for a while, but I'm working harder than ever to make this site what I want it to be! You can expect lots of new free patterns, especially for beginners, and I'm thinking about branching out into other areas as well such as toddler activities (I love to try new things I find on Pinterest!), recipes, weekly free pattern reviews, and way more! I hope you stick around, and don't forget to like me on facebook, follow me on pinterest, and sign up for the newsletter in the sidebar! 

So back to the point of this post... 

Here's what I've been working on:
