So last December I was chatting with friend Kadie as I admired her crochet stockings, expressing my interest in learning crochet. At that point I didn’t know if I really wanted to learn or if I was intrigued because it was something I knew nothing about.
That night I was sitting on mom’s couch, after Kadie graciously sent 3 crochet needles home with me, explaining to mom how I LOVE making things by hand. She was adopted & had 13 siblings & was raised with homemade clothes & stuff so she didn’t understand my desire at all. So after explaining my love for all things homemade & handmade we ventured to Wal-Mart (at midnight) for yarn.
At this point, I still had no idea whatsoever even how to try to crochet or even how to hold the needle. God bless my mother & her patience.
After 20 minutes of her trying to explain & laughing at me because I was so confused, she realized she was teaching me right handed & I was trying to understand left handed.
January brought a lot of ugly squares, bad stitches & a not terrible scarf.
This month I’ve become a little more comfortable & made my first infinity scarf & I’m actually proud of it! I’m ridiculously determined to make a decent hat now.
Happy stitching folks! More to come later!
