I discovered ravelry.com yesterday, and I got kind of addicted. I never considered organizing my crochet projects. I just picked up some yarn, some hooks and stitched along at whim. I sat down last night crocheting, and my husband asked what I’m making. I replied, “Nothing, I’m just playing.” I had just finished a large Crazy Blanket for my sister and hadn’t really chosen another project just yet.
I picked up crochet a few years ago on a whim. I loved doing counted cross-stitch, but I felt compelled to give it up for something with larger needles (or no needles) with my 3 kids being 3 years old and under. This decision was solidified when I had to tear apart a Thomas the Train pillow to find the needle my son hid in it!
Crochet is fun and fast and I absolutely love it! My grandmother tried to teach me years ago, and more recently I picked up a sample granny square and hook from a friend giving me pointers on how to start. In just a few short years, I taught myself to crochet and have made way more stuff than I thought!
On Ravelry, I’m tripping down memory lane adding my projects and discovering that the yarn I have stashed everywhere in my house is more than I realized!
By the way – while I fiddled with some yarn, I made up my next project: A Granny Square Throw:
I have 5 squares already completed… of course, I stayed up entirely too late! I couldn’t help it. I was on a roll and catching up on old Star Trek Voyager episodes on Netflix. lol – The fifth square I finished up this morning:
I’m not 100% sure what the pattern will be yet, but it will be these two yarns – the solid blue and the “Banana Berry Print” variegated yarn.
