I was so excited when I saw this Free Friday Crochet Pattern—Hot Pad Pizzazz. I met the designer of this pattern here in Wichita at the LYS Twist. She’s a frequent customer there, and I met her almost two years ago. Shelly introduced me to her, and we started talking about how she had recently moved to Wichita with her husband’s work. I asked her what she was working on (like I ask everyone else), and she said that she was editing a pattern for Leisure Arts. She explained that she had worked for them while living in Little Rock and still did some freelance editing for them. This was even before I started blogging for Crochet Soiree. I could hardly wait to try Joan’s patterns out.
Here’s my version of Joan’s Hot Pad Pizzazz, and I loved how easy the patterns were to follow—and they were fast, too. Thank you, Joan Beebe, and hopefully, I will bump into you sometime real soon.
