2016 – Another Inspired Year of Crochet?

Happy New Year!

Last week I took a look back at the inspiring year of crochet that was 2015, and this week I’m going to take a look forward.

Firstly though, thanks for all your lovely comments on social media about my health – it’s my number one goal this year to sort it out.  I’m sure it’s totally fine, but I’m an anxious person.  So having something hanging over my head – imagined or not – is stressful.

Anyway, crochet!

This year I want MissNeriss to be all about community and sharing.  Actually, this is what I’ve wanted it to be all along, and I made a few attempts in the past, but 2016 is the year it happens!

Late last year I created a Pinterest community, where we can all share our crochet inspirations.  Have you seen it?  I’d love you to join, by the way.

Just click through to the board and follow the instructions. Or comment below, but make sure you use the same email ID that is linked to your Pinterest account, otherwise I can’t find you.

I’m also considering starting a Facebook group for others who are just as obsessed with crochet.  I know, there are seemingly a million groups out there for crochet lovers, but some fit better than others, know what I mean?  What do you think?  Would you join me?

And while we’re on social, you know by now that I’m completely bananas about Instagram.  It’s another goal this year to post more photos, and to interact even more with amazing people there.  I’m also planning on starting a blog/insta series, where I’ll share my favourite Instagram photos from the last week.  I’m working on a hashtag to use to keep track of all the pics, but if you want to make sure you don’t miss out, please follow me so we can connect!

The pics I loved this year. I'm in love with all the overviews, so had to share my own. #2015bestnine #crochet #2015bestninecrochet

And finally (well, not finally, but enough for now!), I’m hoping to post more tech tips.  I loved putting those together, so if there’s something mysterious about blogging, social media, automation, or whatever, leave a comment here or on FB and I’ll see if I can work on it for you.

Oh! I can’t leave without talking a bit about designs that are in the works. I’m busy with a few project together with Scheepjes – going back to Stone Washed, my great love.  Plus at least two projects using their beautiful Mohair and Alpaca Rhythm yarns.  There are also a couple of top secret projects that I’m dying to tell you about, but then I’d have to kill you….

I’ve just finished reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, and it has inspired me truly.  So, expect some Big Magic from me this year!


What Big Magic can I expect from you?  Happy 2016!
