I love learning. Im not talking about capital cities or languages, but learning skills, crafts or just something new and a little different.
Over the years i’ve dabbled in a few things here and there…..such as running (One I probably should have kept up), dress making, knitting and even nail art (A personal favorite!). I just like to learn! What is life if we dont learn new things?!
Well to continue on my journey of learning I decided this weekend that I would like to learn to crochet with the goal of making a blanket!
I had crocheted briefly as a child, very very briefly! It was probably not long after I tried and failed at knitting. So off I went today to our local craft shop to purchase a crochet needle, some wool and some good luck! I also came away with a pack of creme eggs….to keep my spirits up as i’m battling crochet demons.
After a couple of hours googling and scratching my head, here is a mighty fine attempt at a small rectangle!
And a not so mighty attempt at a flower/star/circle shape. I freehanded this one!
Well wish me luck!
Hopefully we will see a blanket appear in the next year!!
I already know what my next project will be….a patchwork quilt!
