Welcome to 2023!

Happy New Year! Thank you so much for your support throughout 2022. I’m sending my best wishes to you and your loved ones for a healthy, joyous, and creatively inspired 2023! If you’d like to know what’s coming up on Underground Crafter in 2023, read on for details.

Looking Back on 2022

Here are some highlights from 2022.

Plans for 2023

One of the things most readers love about Underground Crafter is all the make alongs, so I’m going to keep those coming in 2023. Here’s what I have planned so far!

  • The fourth annual, year-long mystery blanket crochet along! Get the details on the Mélange Blanket Crochet Along here.
  • Five multi-designer crochet alongs with the CAL Central Crochet Facebook group, starting with the Cozy at Home CAL that kicks off on Monday, January 9, 2023.
  • Relaunching the Weekend Mystery Crochet Alongs in January. I injured my elbow in 2022, and crocheting was painful and slow for months. I had to cut back on my CALs but I will be revving them back up now that I’ve completed my physical therapy.
  • Going back to the monthly format of the charity spotlight series to highlight organizations that accept handmade donations and to share new free crochet patterns designed to meet their donation guidelines. I’ll also be updating older posts since some organizations are no longer accepting donations.

There will be other blog hops and make alongs to come, but those are still a secret for now! As always, the best way to get alerts is to sign up for my weekly newsletter.  Once you subscribe, you get a coupon code for your choice of one of my premium patterns and private access to my vault of subscriber goodies including free crochet and knitting patterns and coupon codes for discounts from some of my favorite indie designers and companies. And, of course, each week you’ll get my newsletter which includes links to all the patterns and tutorials posted on Underground Crafter as well as to the latest from any make alongs and blog hops.

Again, thank you for your support and best wishes for a wonderful year!
