First Live Video – Package Unveiling 5/27/16


Today was a special day. I got a message from my Dad’s favorite aunt on Facebook the other day. I was excited to talk to her anyway because I never really have, and she is quite special to my father. But she offered me some of her mother’s crocheted items! I was so excited to open it, but I decided to wait and share this special moment with my followers and fans. So this is the unveiling of my GREAT AUNT’S work. Thank you for sharing in this very special moment with me!

Another Cabbage Patch Beanie Wig/Hat Pattern is RETIRING FOREVER!

Goodbye, Cabbage Patch Pattern! 

It’s been real, but I have to watch you go!

I have long been out of the trademarked character business on the finished items side, but I always hung on to this,

my only pattern that I’ve ever offered that was fashioned after a trademarked character.

I have dug my nails in on this one and held on as long as I could, but alas, it is time to say my goodbyes to this one!

I will never again be offering this pattern. 


This will be it, the last breath, kicking the bucket, pushing up daisies; she’ll be shuffling off her mortal coil…

In other words, my relationship with trademarked characters has finally, completely come to an end.


Please accept a copy for FREE as a token of my gratitude

for your continued and never ending support!


I am also hosting a 30% off sale in my ravelry store until

May 8th at 11:59PM CST in case this freebie isn’t enough!

Learn to Crochet with Articles of a Domestic Goddess

Is it your New Years Resolution to Learn to Crochet? Do you  OOO and AAA over the viral crocheted items that we’ve all seen shared on Facebook? Do you frequently say “One day I will learn to crochet.”? Are you like me and have even PURCHASED items that sit and collect dust? I am here to tell you that learning to crochet is NOT hard. It IS however difficult to learn something in the wrong order or to learn something and then have to go back and relearn something, or to learn something, thinking it is the only way, and not have the bigger picture because you were taught only one way and can’t branch out! I have compiled my first year of crocheting into a lesson plan that can be followed easily by anyone hoping to learn!


With this lesson plan you can learn to crochet in 7 simple lessons that will bring you from basic beginner to reading patterns. The test group was reading, comprehending and following patterns in 3 weeks, but we’re going to let our group set the pace so it may take longer. This is our first large learning group, so we may go with one lesson a week. Let’s just see how this goes 🙂

Lessons are completely and totally FREE to the members of my crochet group!

The lessons will be listed on the main event wall, members are encouraged to share photos of problems they may be having, photos of successful completed lesson sections (if it applies) or anything else they think applies to the event wall. The lessons are a compilation of the BEST most helpful and most correct items around the internet that I have found. The will be compiled in an order conducive to learning. There will be Youtube videos, miscellaneous helpful blogs, etc. This class will not ONLY be about learning the stitches. It will cover materials, gauge, working in the round vs working by rows, and it will even have some extra stitches bunched in there. The lessons are very easy to follow. To invite people into the event, they will need to be members of Articles of the Everyday Domestic Hooker Crochet Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ArticlesoftheEverydayDomesticGoddess/

If you tag them they will not be able to see it because the privacy settings are set on this event to only be seen by those in the group. And the items in the group can only be seen by those who are members of the group. In order to get them in here, just have them join or add them to the group and they can join the event from there.

Class starts January 6th, 2014! 

I hope some of you more advanced ladies join up to help answer questions!

When in doubt, our hosts are as follows:
Donna Knox of Articles of a Domestic Goddess
Lynette Joe of Loopdy Loop Crochet
Joanne Salter of Salter’s Testers
Celina Lane of Simply Collectible Crochet and Crochet Street
