Houston TX - May 2015

This is the ten-year anniversary of launching my blog "The Crochet DudeŽ" and I've been spending a lot of time wondering how I could celebrate it. Have a sale! Do a big giveaway! Release a new book!

So I've decided to retire.

My products, yarn, and patterns are still on the market but I've retired from creating anything new as The Crochet Dude. My final public appearance will

I've spent this past week in bed doing what most men do when they have the slightest case of anything: suffering. And as I lay there contemplating how much time I may or may not have left on planet Earth I learned a few things. And in honor of my bestie Laurie (aka Crazy Aunt Purl), I made a list:

I'm such a voyeur when comes to other people's houses and lifestyles. I LOVE to watch shows where they are house hunting so I can see kitchens in Pittsburgh, or Costa Rica, or London. I know that all of these home have been prepared for showing on television, but even with that knowledge I think my favorite part is seeing how neat, tidy, and organized it all is.

Hey new year, I have high hopes for you!!! Meet me at camera 3.

No pressure or anything but I would like a conscious uncoupling with 2014 and I'm expecting 2015 to be fresh, happy, rewarding, and adventurous.

I have had enough of the personal growthiness that seemed to ice the 365-day-cake of last year, thank you very much.


Resolutions? Yes I made some this year. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't, but this year I

Back in January I declared to myself and the world that this year I would do things the "right way" - as in the way that I felt they should be done. Its' shockingly easy to get caught up in the way others feel you should be, do, act, etc.

And you know what? They want you to be, do, act, that way simply to make THEM happy.

As 2013 progressed last year I just kept having this nagging feeling that I wasn't doing things the right way. It was too much of a struggle, much more than usual, sort of like I put my canoe in the water and was paddling as hard as I could to go upstream. Sure I was making what looked like some progress but the amount of effort relative to how far I was moving was out of whack!

I'm declaring that 2014 will be the year that I do things the right way.
