So, I've started a new hobby, or as my friend Jeni calls it, a new domestic skill.
I actually learned to crochet as a teen, somewhere around the 12 - 14 year mark in my life, and crocheted a bunch of granny squares. Then I put them in a box and gave them to my granny for Christmas, of course. And haven't given it much thought for 20+ years. But enjoying craft blogs as I do, I've been thinking about it, and every now and then I have had the opportunity to use this skill, if only I had it. As an adult, I could crochet a chain, if necessary, but that's about it. Until today! Today, I learned single crochet, double crochet, and half-double crochet. Jeni and I are taking the Beginning Crochet class at our LYS, and I picked some crazy colors that I would never normally choose, just for fun. If there are errors in my work, I'm blissfully unaware. I've got a handful of patterns bookmarked for future projects. I'll let you know how it goes!
