Back before I had internet… and before I had a laptop, I spent my time baking and quilting, but mostly crocheting. I loved to crochet. My mother-in-law taught me how to crochet while Jeff and I were dating…28 years ago! It’s one of those things I can do and mentally relax, but mainly I love that it is a creative outlet. I love that I know crochet so well that I can look at something and figure out how to make it. I love that I can make gifts and people really appreciate that!
With my first grand-baby on the way ideas are surging through my mind…and my Pinterest boards. Which means I’ve been putting the laptop aside a little more and picking up my hook and yarn! Here are the first couple of things I’ve made for Baby. I was able to figure them out by looking at the pictures, but you can find the minion pattern here, and the cookie monster pattern here.
The really cool thing is that once a skill is learned and learned well you can do so much with it!
