Finally… a craft?!

Standard

Well, I’ve certainly gotten lazy about posting now, haven’t I?

I can’t believe it’s May already. I can’t believe Lilah is approaching her half year birthday! There are a lot of things happening around me, and it’s all happening so fast. Truly is the case that time flows faster as one grows older. (Something I always heard growing up, but never took seriously… until I experienced it!)

After Lilah and I got over our colds, I finally had the strength and a little bit of extra free time after she went to bed for the night, to begin pursuing my beloved hobby of crocheting. I’ve been crocheting almost a year now, all thanks to my wonderful crochet master sister teaching me the way! ^_^

So far I’ve… started working on a doily, then abruptly stopped 3/4 of the way through it to work on a headwrap for my cousin. I had so much fun making the headwrap that I made 2 more, one of which I was very displeased with.

Now, I’ve started working on a blanket based on this pattern. I discovered it last year, but now that my sister has allowed me to delve into her yarn preserves, I’ve decided to give it another try. Here’s what it looks like so far…

I’m just going to rotate colors throughout the whole blanket. Next up is orange, then pink, then I’ll fit blue in there somewhere. Basically a nice bright rainbow. I can’t wait to finish it! Seriously… I can’t wait! I wish I could finish it in one night. @_@

  1. I’m jealous….A) that you found/made time for yourself to do something you just wanted to do and B) that you can crochet at all. I can knit. I can knit plain squares. It’s pitiful.
    I love the color pallette you’ve started with!!

    • It took me years to finally be able to wrap my mind around crocheting. My sister tried to teach me several times before it ‘clicked’. I guess I was too ‘knit-brained’ at the time. 😛
