For the past several years, every year, I’ve said, “I am going to work on making gifts rather than buying gifts for Christmas.” The problem is, I usually make that declaration in mid-December when the only thing I could probably make would be some cookies (and even then, quite often, that doesn’t happen)
This year, I am starting early. Or at least, it feels early.
I started a crochet project. When I was a little girl, my Mom taught me to crochet. Fast forward many years without practice and I had to resort to the internet for a refresher course.
This is my first project – a granny square that could be half of a potholder, or something.
It started slow. I made some mistakes and had to pull out my stitches and start over. I had 3 false starts that got to about this level and then I had to go back to square one. Literally.
And after about 2 hours, I had this
I have a square. A granny square. And it’s at a point where it could be a standalone item if I decide I can’t do another. (Except I will, because now I’m motivated) My first crochet accomplishment in many years.
I can do this! I can hardly wait to finish.
I used this website as a refresher and for the granny square pattern.
So now that we’re on the subject of crochet, I’ll share some funny crochet pictures with you.
Or this one
What’s the last thing you made?
