Moogly Round Up


Who loves Moogly? Everyone!!! This week’s round up featured patterns designed by Tamara Kelly of Moogly. Tamara is a superb designer, a brilliant business woman, and a very dear friend of mine. Most of Tamara’s patterns are free crochet patterns, but she also has knitting patterns and some sale patterns. I have included a mix of them all in this round up. In addition to the patterns and other wonderful content on Moogly, such as video tutorials, giveaways, and product review, Tamara also has 2 Craftsy classes, and patterns published in some online magazines. I’m sure we will see Tamara showing up in even more places across the yarnie universe!

Here are the names and links of each pattern seen in the round up photo. At the end of the list, I have included more goodies for you!! [click to continue…]


I’m so excited that I get to review another Craftsy class taught by my friend Tamara Kelly of Moogly!


Crochet Essentials: Increases & Decreases is a fabulous class for anyone looking to learn more about…wait for it…increases and decreases. 😉

Actually, it is a wonderful class, and is useful to more than just beginners. Of course, if you are a beginner and want to understand various increases and decreases that you may run into in patterns, this is your class! It is also great for [click to continue…]

Take a week

Hello!! Did you enjoy the last CAL/KAL? I have another fun one planned, but for now, let’s take a week.

I’ll introduce you to the new CAL and KAL next week. They will be separate but related. The CAL will run every other week, and the KAL will run on the opposite weeks. So one week CAL, next week KAL, and repeat. Each week will be a a full pattern. You can make them all or just one or any number in between. They will actually be mystery crochet and knit alongs!

Sunday Night Link Blast 6/28/2015

Every Sunday night I post a link blast of knit and crochet goodies on Twitter and Facebook. The link blast usually consists of patterns and yarn blog posts that have happened over the last week, along with some yarn, book or notion items that I feel may interest you. Here is a copy of the June 23rd, 2015 link blast.

Love Wins

Over the past year or so I have done my best to keep politics off my blog. Today, I am so happy that I have to break that rule. Though honestly, I don’t see it as politics as much as I see it as celebrating the fact that EVERY American now has the right to LOVE.

Today is a day I will never forget. I just had a conversation with my daughters explaining why today is so important. They were so happy to know that every person in the USA now has the right to marry the person they love, and to have all the rights that come with that marriage. I did my best to explain some of those rights in terms that almost~8~year~olds could understand. Things like hospital visitation/medical decisions and family healthcare.

Today, everything else seems so small and insignificant. Today is a celebration of love. Today is beautiful. Today is important. Today, love wins.

I want to share my brother’s Facebook status with you [click to continue…]


Mommy and Me Infinite Twilight Cowls

Mommy and Me Infinite Twilight Cowls ~ free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Mommy and Me Infinite Twilight Cowls

Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The Infinite Twilight pattern is one pattern that works up in two sizes, depending on the yarn or hook you use. Using Red Heart Boutique Twilight and an N hook will create an adult size cowl, and using Red Heart Boutique Infinity and a J hook will create a child size cowl (you can actually get 3 child cowls from one skein!) Both cowls are plush and warm and make for great Mommy and Me photo ops!

Cre8tion Crochet Round Up

Cre8tion Crochet Pattern Round Up from Jessie At Home

It seems only fitting that the first of my summer of Designer Round Ups would feature Lorene of Cre8tion Crochet. She was the very first blogger to feature me! So, here is a fun selection of Cre8tion Crochet patterns for you to enjoy.

Lorene has been super generous and has set up a coupon code for 50% off any of her sale patterns on Ravelry from today through the end of the day on June 30th; the coupon code is “infinity”. She has also set up a giveaway for 1 free copy of one of her Rolling in the Deep Infinity Scarf pattern to 3 separate winners! The giveaway is posted at the end of this post, and it also runs to the end of day on June 30th.

Here are the names and links of each pattern. *Please note that most of these patterns are free, but there are a couple that are not. [click to continue…]
