Yes, I am writing my second crochet book! It’s true!


So you’ve probably seen me mention it a little bit on Facebook, and hint about it on YouTube, or straight up talk about “I’m writing this book right now!” on Instagram, but I haven’t really announced it here on my blog. YES. I am writing my second book :). FINALLY!

We only have a working title right now, which may end up being the final title… but I really don’t want to talk about the title or anything until closer to publication and until we’re actually promoting cover art. I WILL tell you that my second book is going to be all about crocheting stuff for your home :). There is one really awesome item that’s for you to wear, but I wanted to focus more on stuff that you could use around the house to make life more yummy.

I have a really tight deadline, which is why I haven’t been blogging as much, although I would like to blog more even while I’m crazily crocheting and writing. Most of the projects are brand new and are still just figments of my imagination (I’m actually making sketches of everything right now for my editor), so I have a lot of work ahead! My deadline for the whole thing is June 1, and the book miiiiiight come out in Spring 2016. I’ll let you know more whenever I learn more!

The image above is from right before I sent some items to my buddy Marissa to photograph. So yeah, those thingies up there will be in the book, and that’s the only peek you get for now!

    The little anchovie looks like one of those catnip toys. …. I would totally put it on a hair clip, just like I did with your free pattern for goldfish crackers.

  18. Sarah says:

    I’ll have to get a move on on the first book then! I have been learning how to crochet recently just so I can make some of the things you share 🙂 I’m still not great, but I am getting there. Can’t wait to see whats in the next book!

    So excited for your next book. Just got your first book after seeing you in the Room to Create magazine. I have already finished three of your patterns. Maybe a cupcake Kleenex box for your next book or a picture frame! What about baskets to put knick knacks in.

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Thanks so much, Jeri!! There is another kleenex box cozy in the book, but it’s a surprise 😉

  21. Cheri says:

    Woo hoo! I’m so happy for you! …And me, because I will get a copy 😀

    Can’t wait to see the new book! I’m hoping for the frosted animal cookies to be included..they are so cute and I’ve been wanting to make them for a long time <3

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      … yep ;). The pattern will be there in a different form……… but you can use it to make the little brooches, too.

      1. Fefe says:

        That’s awesome! Can’t wait!! 😀

  23. Congrats on the book deal, and best wishes with the pattern designing. I hope it all comes together flawlessly. I’ll look forward to seeing what you come up with!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Thank you so much!!

  24. Jan says:

    I think it was a couple of years ago.. There was book you were promoting on your site that had a bunch of Sanrio patterns in it. I think it was like $90. Can you tell me the title of that book? Is it still available?

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hmmm I don’t recall talking about a $90 book. I can only recall the “Hello Kitty Crochet” book, which is an amigurumi book?
