Hi! Welcome to Smiley Goose – I hope you find lots of crochet inspiration and projects as you read my posts.
A little about me-
I’m a thirty-something, stay-at-home mom to my smiley goose, Madison (she’s almost 4 years old, What?!!?). She loves yarn shopping with me and trying to crochet her own projects. Before I was a mommy, I completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology. I worked as an exercise physiologist in cardiac rehab then as a trial assistant in clinical research. I married my best friend, Mike, in 2010. He’s very supportive of my yarn addiction and need to crochet 24/7 🙂
I have always enjoyed some time of crafting whether it was painting, jewelry making, cross stitch, etc. I taught myself to crochet about 10 years ago but didn’t open up my Etsy shop until 2017. Since then, I just can’t stop crocheting! I have a LONG list of projects I want to try, and I never seem to have enough yarn no matter how much I buy.
I have started designing my own patterns, and have many more in my head that I just haven’t had the time to write down yet. I love corner to corner (C2C) crochet! I never thought I could make a blanket, or at least one that was not all wavy and wonky, until I tried C2C. But wait, then I discovered graphgans!!! I didn’t realize life could get any better. I am starting my 3rd fox blanket and will share that with you soon.
Here, I want to share with you my favorite yarn, tools, blogs, and patterns. And, hopefully, some original designs. As always, feel free to contact with me questions or concerns. I am new to the blogging world and have much to learn. If you like to crochet, I hope you draw inspiration for your projects here. If you don’t crochet but love it – you can purchase completed items from my Etsy shop, Smileygoose, as well as my patterns.
