Happy October Everyone!

I hope this month is good to all of you! It’s definitely going to be an exciting month for me! A wedding AND a new grandbaby! I’m pretty sure my feet are no longer touching the ground and I’ll tell you, my heart is about to burst with pure joy! 

This month I am also participating in the Write Tribe Problogger October 2017 Challenge
– Say that three times fast! – 
These are the days and the prompts. 

We don’t have to follow the prompts. We can write about anything on those days. I’m going to try to follow along with the prompts. I’ll be scheduling my first post of this challenge, which is this post, so I hope it posts when it’s supposed to!

#1 – Monday, Oct. 2 – PROMPT = Pattern

I decided to use my current crafting obsession, crochet, as my reference point for this prompt.
My favorite crochet pattern for this fall is the Campfire Cardigan.

(Not my photo or handiwork.)

I haven’t made one yet but I’d like to get one done at least in time for spring. I love that it’s worked in the granny square stitch because, to me, the granny stitch/square is the easiest crochet stitch to work with. I also love that it reminds me of my grandma’s handiwork and also that it’s got a 70’s hippie vibe to it.
I will be making NONE of the following patterns…
I know it’s not a real animal but it still totally creeps me out.

NO man should EVER put these on, not even if your wife made especially for you.

I have no idea what these women are doing.. But, NO!

And this one??? People are just freaks. I wonder how much they had to pay her to parade around in that!
So, there it is. My twisted take on today’s prompt, pattern.
I’m going to cross my fingers, eyes, and toes that this posts when it’s supposed to. I haven’t had much success with scheduled posting in the past but I guess we’ll see.
On the plus side, this should be the only post I have to schedule.

I wish all of you a happy and healthy start to this “spook-tacular” and I will see you all and read you all as soon as life takes an extended pause in my lit’l corner of the world.


  1. I can see why you would just say no to those awful patterns. Good grief, what were they thinking? Oh wait, they weren't thinking.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. ♥


  2. Oh my god- these pics are truly revolting and makes for quite an interesting post on the pattern prompt! I love that Campfire cardi- if you do get one done, pls do show!!
