Best Machine Washable Yarns for Macrame

Hey ho! Poppin’ in to tell you the contract to upgrade and remodel this website is in the works! I am so excited! I have big dreams for it, so it is time to make this site too legit to quit. Sometimes, you have to find the experts in fields to help you level up, even if it costs a little bit. But what does this mean for you?!

Well, it means the site will make more sense, be more aesthetically pleasing, modern, and bring in some much needed revenue for me to continue to offer you free patterns and diy💡 ideas. And…I can offer kits and such!

The work hasnt started yet but I will sure let you know when it does. Until then, please (And I aint too proud to beg), check out my Pinterest. I have been adding a lot of ideas and how to tutorials there, all under a minute. It will help me out tremendously.

Oh and there is a perfect idea pin on machine washable macrame yarns 👇🏾. Just click it. 😊

Knot it!,


Since I’ve been gone

Hi crafters 👋🏾 macramakers and crocheters! How’s yarn life? Keepin’ it knotty? I sure have been. I bet you’re anxiously awaiting my next pattern or DIY #amiright? Ok, I kid, I kid. I do have a super simple granny square crochet plant hanger pattern for you, but before I present that, let me tell you what I’ve created and presented lately.

Actually, I kind of got burned out with the website. It’s so much harder to do than doing youtube video how to’s and I’ve yet to see any real compensation from it. So, I kinda gave up for a while, but Spring has renewed my vision and there are better and brighter things in store for readers of this blog. Trust me.

At any rate, I have finished some macrame tops and my niece has been so kind as to model them for me (ps she is an actual model with the Helen Wells Agency or on IG: @afr0m0mma).

How gorgeous is the back. I ❤️ it!

Oh, and I am wearing one of my creations over a button down lately. See 👇🏾

I love the way it looks. It looks like leather.

Oh, and I am working on another Katie Jones Knitwear Blooming Bomber as a commission for a roller derby friend. It’s below.

Process video is on my tiktok

And, well, I’ve posted at least 4 how to videos on my YouTube channel (subscribe please 🙏🏾🫶🏾). I will post about the special weaving one in a couple days. I’ve created a kit to go along with it. I’d love some feedback on it.

So, that’s a lot. And wait, there’s more! But I guess you’ll have to check me out elsewhere until I get support with this website. I finally set up an appointment with a professional so stay tuned!

Oh, and the granny square macrame pattern is coming. I ran into a roadblock with my mind. I have to write the last round. And art out the motif.

Your whimsical friend,

March Madness ☘️

Granny Square Crop Top

👋🏾 Hi Makers! Welcome back. Raise your hand if you are deep into March Madness? And I ain’t talking basketball. Watching the NCAA March Madness College Basketball Championship is a requirement here. It’s Kentucky, so it comes with the territory, and well, I am a former obsessed college basketball fan come roller derby athlete now retired so sports are in my blood. But this aint no sports blog! It’s about my craft obsession and patterns for you 👊🏾 and lately, granny squares in particular.

The pandemic had us in lockdown and apparently, people are all about crochet now, which is great because I am still obsessed with crocheting. In fact, I have been crocheting like a maniac. Crocheting til my wrists ache. So why haven’t I shared patterns and works with my blog readers? (Begging the question…because I have been crocheting. Ha. 🧶)

Not only is crocheting big again, but granny squares are all the rage. And I get it. I have always loved making granny squares. Me encanta granny squares. Let me show you. Here are some of the projects I’ve recently completed.

So, see 👁, March Madness. And I have one last project to finish this month of the granny square variety. A midi granny square dress. I am over halfway mark on square making. Wish me luck! Have you been granny square obsessed? Share the love on IG.

Check back in a few days for a new crochet pattern!

Happy Making,
