Guess what I did this weekend?!
I LEARNED HOW TO CROCHET!!!! Yay me :)
Ok, so I'm obviously just a beginner, but I've got the single stitch, and double stitch DOWN! AND...I can do a circle, so I figured if could do those things, then why not make a little beanie? And a baby doll blanket? I just finished those, and the beanie needed a flower... and thanks to YouTube, I learned how to make one. Here's how it turned out!
One thing is for sure about crocheting, it is time consuming! That's the only downside I've found in my 4 day journey so far ;) I love how I can take it anywhere and and do it at anytime. I can't tell you how excited I will be when I can make all those super cute beanies for kids you see around, I'm determined to get good at this. This will be PERFECT for me when I'm pregnant and can't get off the couch. Maybe it will give me the sense I'm actually doing something?
If I were smart, I would have asked my very talented Grandma to teach me years ago...instead I teased my sisters who she taught some of the basics to. Teenagers are stupid sometimes. I do hope she'll teach me more when I move back to California.
I have to give a huge thank you to my friend, and crochet teacher Jennifer Gossett. She just opened a facebook page here go check out her amazing skills. Maybe one day I'll be able to make some of that cute stuff!
Just like the title of this post, I'm totally hooked. I love crocheting! This is one thing I can be super proud of myself, before Sunday I had never even picked up a crochet needle, I can't wait to make beautiful things.
