Well, its been some time since I last checked in and I have to tell you I didn’t mean to leave you hanging with my story about fly strips… I’m so sorry! But now I’m back and I wanted to let you know that I have figured out how to crochet!! It only took a few YouTube videos and a few small patterns and I was off, ‘hooked’ as Nate has told me!
I’ve made a few different things so far (pictures hopefully to come soon) but what I’m working on right now is a blanket that I found from Pinterest (don’t you just ❤ Pinterest). Three Beans in a Pod was the one who made the pattern so I have to give her credit for the cool idea.
So far I only have the about 3/4 of the circles made but this weekend we are supposed to be getting a blizzard so I have a feeling I’m going to have some time to work on the blanket. The circles are turquoise, yellow, and brown. I had to really contimplate if I was going to use the yellow I have at home or buy some… mostly because the yellow came from my Grandma Poll’s collection before she passed away. But, in the end I decided that yarn left in the drawer was being well used.
Before you get too excited about me making a baby blanket, its for a friend of mine who is pregnant, not for me!
