You CAN Crochet!

February 17, 2011 at 9:34 AM Leave a comment

I picked up a new skill while I was in Indiana…from a child! She taught me how to crochet. First the chain stitch, then single crochet, and finally double crochet. If you can master these three basics, then you can probably master any of the crochet stitches.

I started practicing right away so I wouldn’t forget. On my flight home, I began to make a scarf. I finished that rather quickly and realized that if I was crocheting, I wasn’t picking at my cuticles (a life-long bad habit of mine). So, any time I was idle, even for just a few minutes, I would pick up my hook and yarn and begin to crochet. I made tons of “Granny Squares.” Now I guess I should put them together… I didn’t really have a mission or plan, just wanted to keep my hands busy so I wouldn’t pick at them. As the Granny Squares started to pile up, I thought I should perhaps crochet with a goal.

My husband and I went to an antique shop, and there were beautiful afghans that had been crocheted. Immediately, I recognised the stitch used and was sure I could duplicate it. I began making baby afghans/blankets. Then, I saw a picture of a crocheted baby hat, and believed I could duplicate that. Here is the result:

Guess we’ll be working on a crochet video soon! LOL! It is actually very simple and very enjoyable.
