This collection is called “This Is Me”. For many reasons.
- The Greatest Showman is the greatest show… man.
- I feel the need to introduce myself to many of you.
- We planned out our year just a month before this photo shoot and I was the only model under such short notice.
- I feel this is the year for me to “come into my own” if you will
Monika and I had great talks and great laughs (per usual) during our photo shoot/sleepover. She helped me make my first Instagram Story. We watched The Greatest Showman while we made 40+ tassels for the “Tried and True Beginner Blanket”. (All while we drank a bottle of our favorite Moscato… shhhh…)
We discussed the need to represent ourselves authentically. Sometimes that means posting a photo of yourself laughing on a rug you made (crinkly nose and all). Sometimes you post a video of yourself making tassels… at night… with no make-up… and no script.
Sometimes you feel like the Bearded Lady at the beginning of the song singing “This Is Me” through tears.
Sometimes you are the Bearded Lady singing at the end of the song – about ready to take on the whole world.
Know what? All of it is you. All of it is me. This is us you guys!
Tears & brokenness.
Pitch perfect & spot-on choreography.
Thanks for coming along with me on this journey. I can’t wait to share more!

I’m so EXCITED!
I have so many free patterns up now!
You can still favorite or queue all my patterns on Ravelry. But the content will be here on the Firefly Hook site.
You can also purchase the PDF for $1.99 for safekeeping. And great news! If there are revisions or corrections to the PDF, you will automatically get the update! I really love SendOwl. I hope you do too.
Also – I’m really excited to announce that I’ve become and affiliate with Amazon. This means I can connect you with great yarns and hooks and your purchase supports The Firefly Hook. I promise I’ll only post relevant links (or something I truly love).
I have enabled ads through WordPress. I can’t control those. I’m sorry about that. And I’m sorry if they are annoying. But I gotta pay the bills!

But first, let me share two “true loves” of mine: Addi Hooks & Malabrigo Yarn. You will see these a lot on the site as affiliate links. I’m not trying to get you to buy something I haven’t held in my hands and LOVE. Almost half of my designs are worked up in Malabrigo yarn. And I’d guess 90% of my stitches were made with my Addi Hooks.
One last piece of good news – if you click on the yarn link (or any other link on my site) then purchase a different skein of yarn (or any item on Amazon) you still support The Firefly Hook! Isn’t that great?
Okay, okay…. here’s the free patterns:
