My Crochet Life: Time For A Happy Dance

I am writing this post super excited because as I wrap up this last day of September and prepare for October I am happy to say that not only did I meet but I exceeded my sales goal for September (Insert Happy Dance Here). There is no way I would be able to write this post without the continued support of my family and friends both off and online and to each and everyone of you I want to say THANK YOU!

When I started Don't Get it Twisted Crochet November of last year I did so as a way to share my love for this craft with the world and a way to continue to feed my yarn addiction. Although I have always taken my business seriously I never really thought that I would be able to stay home all day and play with yarn. I worked a full time job and I was happy with being able to crochet in my spare moments. Then came February of this year and I found myself without my full time day job and having a difficult time finding a new day job so needless to say the thought of playing with yarn all day was sounding more like a possiblility. Fast forward to today and no Don't Get it Twisted Crochet is not my sole source of income...yet, but it is headed in that direction. Since February I have had a serious talk with myself and what I want my life to look like, what things are most important to me and what things am I willing to sacrifice now so I can live the life that I want in the very near future. It required me to make some very hard decisions both personal and professional and a move from the DC metro area back to NC.

What this month has shown me is that the goals I have set for Don't Get it Twisted Crochet are achievable. That I am not crazy to follow my passion and that I need to re-evaluate and set some bigger goals for October. For my non-hooking friends be on the lookout for more great items to carry you through this Fall and Winter like the new Big Hook + Big Yarn Infinity Scarf, and if you are beginner hooker then you will love the pattern for the Don't Get it Twisted Crochet Signature Infinity Scarf available for instand download here.

Thank you again for coming with me on this journey and I look forward to sharing October's success with you. In the meantime rember Don't Get it Twisted, Get it Crocheted!
