Ten years ago, I left a volatile marriage and the Middle East with a 22 month old baby, a suitcase filled with clothes and knitting/crochet supplies and travelled 8000 miles with the dream of safety and a better life. I wanted desperately to be a stay at home mom to my son and work around his schedule -- into the middle of the night if needed -- creating a business out of my knitting and crochet designs.
I have made mistakes along the way. Oh boy, have I ever! I have also been in the right place at the right time, and made incredible contacts. I have worked hard, developed a solid reputation as a professional, and given my blood, sweat and tears to making a living for my son and me.
Ten years later, I am proud to say I have the experieces of 10 seasons on a crafting TV show! And I'm the published author of 8 books! I have designed well over 300 knit and crochet patterns for magazines and yarn companies in the industry, and written dozens of articles. My Wrapture product line (delicate wash and solid perfume) make me so proud and happy. Not only do I love them, but hearing how much others love it too makes my heart smile. I have worked with some of the most talented and creative people on the planet and I am proud to call many of them my friends.
Thank you to every single person who has supported my career over the last 10 years. Every pattern, every book, every episode watched, every bottle of Wrapture sold -- it is YOU who have supported my little family and kept us going. To commemorate the first ten years, I have created two volumes of eBooks.
Volume 1 Crochet is a collection of the first 10 years of patterns from my PDF pattern line: 19 accesories, 12 shawls and 7 garments for only $7.99! That is less than a quarter per pattern!!
Here are two slideshows showing you all the patterns in each collection. Below is a link to more information on each instant download eBook pattern! Also, if you share this information on your social media accounts, you enter to win a prize package of yarn and books and tools, too! Thanks again for all you do for me!
Love always, Kristin
