Busy Days, New Ways, and a Summer Scarf Pattern

Wow, it's been so long since I've stopped by to say hi.  We've had a crazy busy summer and I've been dealing with some strange health problems that have caused me to have a really low white blood cell count. I'm trying a new diet to see if it works, and so now I'm completely off grains, legumes, dairy, and refined sugar.  Plus I'm on Nystatin, B12, Folic Acid, C, and Zinc.  The good news is that I've lost 7 pounds (woot woot).  Honestly didn't know what I was going to eat at first but have really adapted well and now I'm loving it.  It's lots of meat, eggs, veggies and fruits.  It helped that Felipe joined in on the fun with me.  He's lost 10 lbs and is looking great too.

With all that happening I forgot to mention that I have a really cool scarf pattern that was published earlier this summer called the Cannon Beach Convertible Scarf.  It's super easy to make and it can be worn in all kinds of fun ways.  Pattern available here.  I hope you like it!

World Cup + Crochet = Happy Camper

Thanks to a grand collaboration between Univision who has played every single World Cup game without commercial interruption, lots of alpaca yarn, and a nice Boye aluminum J Hook, I have been in heaven for the past week or so.  I've watched 13 games so far.  Today USA, ranked 13, played Portugal, ranked 4, and tied.  It was a roller coaster of a game and in the end it was a bit heart breaking, but I think this is the best that the USA has ever done in the World Cup, so it's time to celebrate!  I'm offering 25% off my Ravelry with coupon code GOL25 from now through Tuesday June 22, 2014.  GO USA!!!

Woot woot!  Look at them all!  Aren't they all fantastic?!?!  Mine is the Cannon Beach Cowl.  I used Tidal and Cappuccino colors and was inspired by the ocean and sand at one of my favorite beach towns in Oregon.  I hope you like it and all the DW7 designs.  Stay tuned for the joint pattern release on June 4, 2014.  All the designers will be offering huge sales in their Ravelry shops with coupon code DW7SALE.
