I’d like to think of myself as a “crafty person”. Not like the puff-painted-and-bedazzaled-t shirt kind of person, but crafty none the less.
In an effort to appease the creative bursts of energy that I often get, I’ve decided to start a winter project: learning the art of crochet. I used to know how to crochet, but for some reason, this skill is not like riding a bike for me…I just can’t remember how to do it. I even got a how-to booklet, but the diagrams aren’t very clear. Luckily, my mom happens to be an expert in the field of crochet (she made crocheted baby blankets for my sister, brother, and I while she was pregnant with each of us!) This week, my parents and Buddy and I are making a roadtrip to see my sister, brother-in-law, and niece. Hopefully at some point on this trip, my mom will be able to bestow her crochet wisdom to me…no pressure Mom!
Until then, a fresh spool of yarn, a crochet hook, and an eagerness to learn is all I’ve got. Hopefully this will turn into something beautiful when I’m done!
Happy Monday and Happy crafting!
