A Milestone and a Storm


  I'm writing this at 2:30 in the afternoon on Thursday... If you've visited my blog in the last hour, then you may have been my 300,000th viewer! Is it a big, huge milestone? Not really. But I always told myself that I would really get serious about blogging when I reached 300,000 views, and it came today. So I'm doing a little dance all like


blog, milestone, 300,000 views


Yay!


  I don't have much time to celebrate, because I'll have to shut down again soon... But I have something for you! Before the weather got really bad today, I spent some time on Ravelry. I learned how to create a promotion, so I could give all my wonderful readers a gift for the views. I knew the number was coming up soon, but I never expected to reach my milestone today. I'm glad I took the time to learn it now!


  My gift to you - The only thing I ever managed to load in my Ravelry store: The Holly Holiday Table Runner. The holidays are approaching soon enough, so I thought it would be cool to make it available for free. You could use the pattern for the squares to create anything from a single doily to a whole blanket. Like I said, it's the only thing I have to offer in my store... But until September 8th, I'm offering it for completely FREE!


crochet, pattern, free crochet pattern


  That's a whole week! If I've done this correctly, then all you have to do is click "buy it now" and you'll be able do download the pattern for free. I tested it out myself and it worked, so I'm pretty confident that I did it right... 


I'd love to stick around and say more, but it's definitely time to go. This was what the weather looked like when I checked it last:

And this is what it looks like now:

It tricked me. It was coming from the west, and now it's moving in from the south...


  What a day to celebrate! Well, here's the wind and rain... And I'd love to pretend the thunder is just nature clapping in congratulations, but it means I need to go. I get a little scared in weather like this, but I'll be fine as long as I have a hook and yarn. 

Thanks for the views!

Happy Crocheting!
