What's Coming Up

The other day, I talked about some of my personal goals for 2016, such as focusing on short-term planning so that I am not worrying about things to come months down the row. With that in mind, there are some things that I want to do during the first few months of 2016 and I thought I would share a bit with you about the things to come.

 New pattern releases and designing: Well, this is a given! I haven’t done a whole lot of designing recently, I am looking forward to spending some quality with my sketch pad and crochet hook working on some new critters. I have plenty of ideas already, but I am always looking for more. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear about them over on the Monster’s Toy Box Ravelry group.

Hmmm... what could that be?

Mystery Crochet-a-Long: Coming up this year are two more crochet-a-longs, including Monster’s Toy Box’s first ever Mystery Crochet-a-Long. If all goes well, that should be coming up in February, so I will keep you posted on the exact details.

March Month of Minis: I am planning on bringing it back this year and I have some new ideas on how to improve things and make it even more interesting, like having all of the minis available in an easily accessible eBook format (along with having individual patterns). Last year, I released a total of five mini amigurumi patterns over the course of March—one every Friday, plus an extra because I couldn’t resist. I have five new mini patterns again for this year, so again, I will keep you posted on further developments.

Honey the Bunny: In a slightly nearer future, this sweet little bunny will be making her pattern debut sometime during January. Because of the holidays, my schedule has been thrown off a little bit, but expect to see more of her in a week or two.

This will be an action-packed couple of months, but I am looking forward to all of the exciting things that are coming up!

I haven't been on revelry much lately but I always look for your updates here. Looks like we may have another monster to add to the toy box? And, Honey the bunny is too adorable. I must say, I'm looking forward to your mystery CAL. I hope I'll be able to join in when it's time. My life has been a little crazy lately too.

Glad to see that you guys are excited! Hopefully the MCAL won't be too easy for you all... or too hard!

I hate to jump the gun here, but I am planning on getting yarn for Honey the Bunny in tomorrow's GnomeAcres update. Will 180 yds of Aran weight be enough?
Posted by Alyssa on
Dorothy-- It should be plenty! The yarn I used for the sample is aran weight and comes in 170 yards skeins. I used about 2/3 of a skein for Honey (So about 100 yards, more or less?).

Looking forward to seeing what sort of cool color your Honey will end up being; GnomeAcres has some fun colorways!

Alyssa - I plan on getting "Little Bunny Foo Foo" and "Bad Bunny"! Though if I get worsted or DK I could make Honey the Bunny as well as some knit ones from the same skein. Hmm...
