My Story

about me

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

-Pablo Picasso

 

Welcome! Grab a cup of coffee and have a seat!

I am the Sigoni behind Sigoni Macaroni and this is the part where I give myself a little introduction.

I am an Air Force wife and a mother to one. I’m a Jill of ALL Trades, however, master of none. Perfection is not my goal, as I love learning and I believe there is always more you can learn even if you’re an expert.

This here blog includes Crochet, Parenting, and Lifestyle content.

If you are someone who also loves the idea of learning, then you will feel right at home here! Call me a nerd, call me a geek. Learning is fun and I will show you just how fun it can be!

My goal for my Crochet content is to make Learning to Crochet as EASY as possible with step by step photos of each pattern and stitch. I also love designing new patterns and giving back my designs as free patterns! I also try to write each of those patterns up with many pictures so that even if you’re a beginner, you can crochet any of my designs. If you ARE new to Crochet, you should check out my series, Learn to Crochet the Easy Way, and I promise it will be easy peasy lemon squeezy for you to learn.

When it comes to Parenting, sometimes I wish people could watch my life as a movie. I am a crazy parent.

I LOVE being a mom and if you’re also a mom, you know there are times where you wanna rip your hair out. Am I right?

If I speak badly about anything regarding Parenting on this site, you should know now that I am using a SARCASTIC tone. I am EXTREMELY sarcastic. But I also know that when you’re reading something online, if you don’t know the person, then you start thinking “Umm is she sarchotic..?”

Never heard of that word? Me either, I just Googled it to figure out how to describe myself and I think it’s spot on.

Sarchotic: [adj]Β When you’re so sarcastic, people aren’t sure whether you’re joking or whether you’re just crazy

Well, now you know.

 

Want to know more about me?!

I probably have the best kid ever. His personality is amazing. He’s either going to be an actor or a comedian and I’ll be proud of both. Every time he sees a girl on TV, whether she is a human, cartoon, or airplane transformer with a girl’s voice, he confesses his love for her. And then continues to say, “I love all the girls and their butts.” Don’t ask me why because I truly have no idea.

Don’t get me wrong though, he is in his terrifying threes… Hence the reason I mentioned wanting to rip my hair out a time or two.

I also have the best husband ever. He is ridiculously supportive of everything I do, he is the best father my son could ever ask for, and he is literally perfect for me. So ladies… back off.

“Oh em gee, she really is sarchotic…”

Haha! Just kidding!

If you asked a friend, they would probably say that I’m outgoing, clumsy as all hell, and that I love to talk. Sometimes when I talk, I find it hard to shut up. Now I know where my son gets it.

I also like to sing. A loooot.

And no, I’m not good at it.

 

Blog Name Explained:

Let’s start with MY name.

Sigoni.

A lot of people get so confused when they hear or see it, but I’m tellin’ you. It’s super simple.

Si-Go-Knee.

There’s no “R” anywhere in my name for those of you crazy people who decide to throw that in there! (said specifically for every teacher I’ve ever had in every grade up until graduation)

My mother named me after the actress, Sigourney Weaver. Her reasoning: She was the first “badass” actress for her role in Alien. I know.. she crazy. But she is a great actress, so I’m okay with it.

The Macaroni part comes from my grandmother (only the best woman who ever lived). She used to sing,

“Sigoni, Sigoni, How’s your Macaroni?”

And it has stuck ever since.

End Rambling.

If you’re seriously still with me after all that, you deserve a high five. I apologize for this long novel of an about me. When I said I liked to talk, apparently that means so do my fingers.

Happy Hooking my Happy Hookers!

And if you’re not a Crocheter and that comes off offensive, well… look it up and you’ll understand πŸ˜‰
