I had the pleasure of testing this pattern from @erinsyarnshoppe for these awesome fingerless/texting gloves. I’m definitely keeping these for myself!

I’m having a blast test knitting this awesome sweater pattern from @mattiemaecrochet! I just have one sleeve left and then I’ll be done!

Have you ever tested a pattern? If so, which one has been your favorite? Drop me a line and tell me all about it!

Staying in on a Friday night watching #rhonj, eating homemade chocolate cookies and planning to write my own pattern. 🍪 I’ve been in a creative funk lately. It seems like every time I try to knit something, it just doesn’t turn out right. 😕
..
Double tap if you can relate!

Let me know what you do to get out of a creative slump.

Since this is my 100th post, I figured I’d keep it 💯 with you.

It’s been 2 weeks since my last post. To be honest, I needed a break. I let Instagram get the best of me. I starting comparing myself to others which we all know is a terrible thing to do. I was stressing over taking the perfect picture, having the perfect caption, finding the perfect hashtags, etc. But as I was scrolling through Pinterest, I came across a quote that said “You don’t have to be perfect to be amazing!” Just what I needed!

Double tap if you agree!

So...my husband tried on the #thatwoodsonbeanie that I made the other day and he loved it! He asked me to make him a black one with a thin blue line. The last time I made him something was when he was my boyfriend. 💕 He absolutely loves it! I can’t wait to see how it looks with his corrections uniform. Double tap if you love a man in a uniform! 💙

I love the simplicity of this double brim beanie! It’s stylish and keeps your ears extra warm. This “Sungold” color makes me long for sunny days and warmer weather. ☀️ Double tap if you agree!

The lovely Kristen from @ofyarnandyonder tagged me and asked #widn. I’m currently knitting a slouchy beanie with this gorgeous “tropical pink” color. It makes me long for sunny weather! ☀️

Check out the bird print fabric on this wristlet! Did you know you could also use it to hold your crochet hooks, circular knitting needles and other smaller notions? It’s available in my shop. Just click on the link in my bio!

Tell me... @wallabyknits, @lifeslittlethingsco, and @ashleyscrochetshoppe...what are you ladies working on?

Don’t call it a dream. Call it a plan.

Smash the hell out of them. 🔨
Clap for your damn self. 👏🏻

Believe in yourself and go for it! Double tap if 2018 is gonna be YOUR year!

I just wanted to take a few minutes to share the back story of my shop name and logo.
..
Coming up with a shop name is tough! I knew I wanted to incorporate my craft into the name but not make it too obvious. When I opened my shop, I was only crocheting. That’s where the “Hooks” part comes in. I was also using mostly Red Heart yarn back then and that’s where the “Heart” came from. Plus, everything I make comes from the heart. 😉 I also took inspiration from a Hart & Huntington shirt I bought. It’s one of my favorite shirts. So that’s how I came up with the name “Hooks and Heart”!
..
When I first opened my shop in 2014, I ordered some generic business cards from Vistaprint and didn’t do much with my shop. In 2016, I decided I wanted to give my shop a chance and a brand. Since I had also just learned to sew, I wanted to incorporate that into the design along with crochet hooks and a ball of yarn. I have an obsession with butterflies and chartreuse (swipe to see my wedding pics!) so those were a must too. Maranda at @cyanskydesign did an AMAZING job designing my logo and I love it!

I can’t get over how colorful and squishy this Big Braid Beanie is! The color is called “Creamsickle” but I think it looks more like Fruity Pebbles.

Can you say #momlife💕? I plan on adding new purses to my shop in 2018 and I want to know... what do you look for in a purse? What style do you like, print, color, size, special features, etc. Leave a comment and let me know. I’d love your input!

Sometimes, less is more! I love my cross-body purse but there are times when I just want to carry something smaller. Especially when I’m grocery shopping or running errands around town. Wristlets are the perfect size for holding my phone and debit card while toting around my toddler. Check out more fun prints by clicking on the link in my bio!

I know that they made a couple movies after the show ended BUT...I’d absolutely LOVE to see another season of Sex and the City! 🍸💕🚕

It was really hard to choose my Best 9 of 2017 but here they are! The items in the corners are 4 out of 5 items that I sold on Etsy this year. I know that’s not a lot but I’m pretty proud of it! The picture in the middle is one of several donations I made this year. I love being able to help out and it’s also a good way to get my name out there. Two of the pictures are items that I got to test knit. I’ve only been knitting for about 4 months so it was exciting to be chosen to test patterns. I’m OBSESSED with the braided cable beanie! It’s so squishy and sparkly! Last but not least, the Judgead Jones Hat! I made it for my niece and she looks so adorable in it! It still shocks me that I finally learned how to knit! I’m going to set some maker goals for 2018 and I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish!

This is my motto for the day! I’ve got a handful of hats and wristlets that I STILL need to list in my Etsy shop but I’m slackin’...BIG TIME!

For the first time in awhile, I’m not sure what project to start next! I need to organize my stash so maybe something will inspire me...

OMG! Isn’t this planner adorable?! I entered the 12 days of Christmas giveaway that @lydiasenn had and...I won! I never win anything! Of course she doesn’t know this but I’m OBSESSED with butterflies! 🦋 I “plan” on using it for my Etsy shop...pun intended. 🤣 Thank you, Lydia!
