a year old...

One year ago, I moved my blog and changed the name of it to Plus3 Crochet. I decided that I would change up the look of the blog to celebrate one year in this space! I recently discovered the blog Pugly Pixel, it's a great place full of tips and tutorials for designing your blog, plus there's plenty of free things to help you. I found this free layout while browsing the site, it's exactly the look I've been wanting to have here on the blog.

In the past year I've learned a lot more about crochet and I've had so much fun sharing it all with you. My readers have been so great with leaving me encouraging comments, I've loved hearing from every single one of you! I've gained a lot of followers over the past year as well, there's over 400 of you now, thank you all for wanting to follow me. I'm going to have a pretty awesome giveaway once I hit 500! I'm really excited for it... if I ever get there!

I thought I'd share the top 5 referrers to my site from this past year. I found this in the "Stats" tab (blogger dashboard) I only discovered this recently, it's a pretty cool tool.

I-Crochet - this is a linky blog where I sometimes I post my crochet projects, if you've never been there, go now, there's always a lot of links to check out!

Thank you for all visiting, I hope you like the new look (click over from your reader if you haven't already!). Have a wonderful day! I'll be back tomorrow to share some knitting (gasp!) if the sky clears up to let me get some photos.
