2021 Crochet Round-up

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday. Ours was filled with family, friends, and food. We made tamales at our houses, and other family members brought rice, beans, and a brisket. Of course, I also made a few pies. My niece loves strawberry pie, so that was a must! It was so much fun watching the children open their gifts, playing games with the family, and my SIL brought a pinata for the kids. So much fun!

Once Christmas is over, thoughts turn to New Year’s Eve and the goals for the coming year. Have you started working on your resolutions yet? I’ve compiled some of my most popular blog posts to help with that.


Are you adopting a pet this year, or did you get a puppy for Christmas? My Bruno was a Christmas gift from my husband last year, and I published the sweater pattern I designed for him. There are 2 puppy sizes, and I’m going to work on an adult pug sweater before the weather gets cold in Texas.
