Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
I thought today would NEVER arrive!
If you are reading this, it is because I finally closed my eyes very tightly, said a prayer and hit “publish”!
Hooray for me! Thirty second dance party! Ya’ll!
Anyway, I’m Lois, the creator behind OzzyLosi Knit Designs! If you want to know more about me click here.
Otherwise continue reading to find out more about this blog thing I’m doing.
I am SO excited to finally be embarking on this whole blogging journey!
I am also nervous.
And a little bit scared.
Ok, a lot scared!
I am a total introvert with extrovert tendencies. It’s complicated, ok?
The thing about me as an introvert is I am a secret extrovert who LOVES online platforms because it allows me to be extroverty! (yes, that is a real word – grammar police!)
I have wanted to blog for many, many years now, but what would I blog about? I mean, what do I love?
Truth – So. Many. Things.
But what do I love so much that I can talk about it nonstop? Something I love that no one near me wants to listen or share with me the love and joy of this spectacular topic?
Ah knitting! You rocked my world, baby – Yay!! (Austin Powers voice everyone)
Only knitters will understand this enthusiasm, love, and response.
Light bulb moment!
I can share my love of knitting with the internet and hopefully someone someday somewhere will find me and share my knitting love and enthusiasm and we can be friends!!!!!
(Full Disclosure: I DO have knitting buddies that I share with in person, but it is just not enough! Also, my family always tells me when I talk to them about knitting and yarn it helps them sleep, which is not as complimentary as they think)
So anyway, back to the story…
Around the time of the Light Bulb Moment, I had a wave of creative inspiration and began creating so many pattern sketches and designs. It was a bit overwhelming! But really good, you know?
That was in early December.
Now it is the beginning of May.
What took me so long?
Well let me sum up. First came the tidal wave of creativity. Then came the drowning phase. The overwhelm. The imposter/fraud syndrome. The “researching” phase. The dragging my feet phase. The whining phase. The I can do it phase. And here we are.
If you have ever embarked on a journey, especially a creative one, you may be familiar with the process. For me (not everyone) it looks like this:
By now, I am sure you are wondering, but what is this all about? Will you just ramble on and expect me to read this rubbish?
Second: A little.
Third: Here is what I am hoping to share and engage with you in a mutual love of all things knitting:

Oh, how often?
How about once or twice a month when I update my blog AND maybe more when I release a new pattern!
Wait, I didn’t mention new patterns? I am certain I did – are you skimming? That’s cool, I do it all the time too.
Yes, I am now designing knitting patterns!
What type of patterns?
So far: blankets, dishcloths/towels, hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, cowls, and hopefully more categories soon!
I currently send out weekly emails, monthly and when patterns are released – which may sound like a lot! But NEVER FEAR! Once you sign up for my newsletter I will send you a link to a survey so you can sign up to receive emails at your preferred frequency!
What are my patterns like?
I am SO glad you asked, because I do have a free pattern, no big deal, it’s just a dishcloth or towel. But If you want to see what to expect from my knitting patterns, you can check it out.
