It started innocently enough. I needed a new winter cap. I decided to crochet one for myself. I hadn’t been crocheting for a bit – distracted by polymer clay I suppose – and after going through my yarn stash I saw a trip to the store was necessary. So a couple of days later, I stopped at Joann’s on the way to the grocery store. Two hours later, half my grocery budget spent, I emerged with a gigantic bag brimming with yarn.
Crochet has always been my first love. In a much earlier post, I mentioned my Grandma taught me how to crochet as a grade school girl. Although I put my hooks away for a very long time, they resurfaced in my life about twenty years ago and have not left. During these years, I have delighted in the fabulous new yarns and techniques such as felting (not really a new technique but it fell out of favor for so long it feels new). Now, after my trip to Joann’s, I realized, once again, how much I enjoy crochet.
I have been experimenting. I made a few – make that several – bracelets. I have listed a couple on my Etsy site:
Okay. I’m off to crochet a bit more. While typing this, I have suddenly remembered I never made that cap for myself.
