Today I have managed to send a finished custom pattern to a customer, read and reply to some emails (regarding testing two new patterns), and I almost got lost in scrolling through Instagram and Facebook but I managed to pull myself out.

It is such a strange dichotomy – the need to be on social media for business, but the distraction of social media that interrupts working.

On Instagram I asked for some feedback on my most recent Crochet-A-Long (Winter 2021). If you have anything you’d like me to know about the way I do CALs please contact me. Or comment on my Instagram post.

In my Facebook group I posted an interlocking version and a mosaic version (both with charts and written instructions for right- and left-handed crocheters) of a title banner for the Year of Gnomes set. Someone asked if I could make a banner and I decided it would be an acceptable use of my time. It is not going to be part of the Ravelry or Etsy eBook because there are already so many files there and I don’t want to confuse people.

You can grab the files here on my website if you don’t use Facebook. Please remember to share the link to my website if your friend would like a copy of the pattern instead of sending them the PDF yourself.

Both files have the written instructions for right-handed crocheters, then left-handed written instructions. The chart can be found after the written lines.

If you don’t want to add it to your gnomes you can use it as a scarf! Or a table runner. Although I think your guests might have a lot of questions if you draped this across your dining table.

I’m off to bake some muffins with the kids now!
