The lack of posts on my blog lately has been very hard to take. I promise though that it will all be worth it when I reveal a few things I have been working on.
Most recently (as in 5 days ago) I started learning to crochet. So far I am getting it down pretty easily, but much practice is needed to get there. I have wanted to learn this for years, as my mother crochets some pretty fantastic things as well.
Right now I have been practicing the stitches over and over, pulling out the piece and then starting again. Last night was the first time I decided I would try and make sophie a scarf. I'll let you know how it goes. Do you crochet? Any tips for me in getting started?
If you have ever wanted to learn crochet like me, take a peak over here at the craftyminx to start crochet school for yourself. It's pretty amazing all the work that has been put into this for everyone to learn for free. I think it's wonderful to have more then one crafty thing that you like to do, and sometimes it's even fun to intertwined crafts to make pretty awesome things. Stop by and take a peak
Happy Sewing & Crocheting!
