I decided that, since I’m going to spend a lot of the winter in front of the television, I should learn how to multi-task. So I took a quick, 4-week introduction to crochet class.
I LOVED it. I can’t stop. And I’m starting to build my own yarn stash. (This is apparently quite a common affliction among crocheters.
Here’s how my addiction happened.
Week 1 – We made a dishcloth to learn how to do all the stitches.
Week 2 – I used the stitches I learned to start this project on my own. It’s a lap blanket for my mom. It’s 2 rows of double cross-stitch and 2 rows of granny stitch. We won’t discuss the edges.
Week 3 – We learned how to make granny squares, and how to seam things together. I made this little purse for my niece. It’s just big enough for an iPhone and a couple other little things.
Week 4 – I made something for myself. This scarf is 300 stitches long – about 8 feet.
And now I need more yarn and projects!
