A few weeks ago I decided it was time for me to brush up on my crochet skills. Or should I say my lack of crochet skills. My mom taught me once upon a moon but, like with a lot of things I learned as a pre-teen, I didn’t keep up with it.
After unsuccessfully inquiring at a local artsy-fartsy store, a friend of mine volunteered to teach me. And teach me she did. Between her instruction and some YouTube videos, I have rocked out several fun projects and I am now officially obsessed.
Nevermind afgahns, traditional booties and boring hats, I want to make the cute, quirky and trendy items.
And in the past four weeks I have turned out these…
And now I’m on to a Spock beanie (with pointy ears) and blue Star Trek baby cocoon. I plan to send that one off to a classmate of mine who just found out her first grandbaby will be making his appearance in August. She loves Star Trek and although she crochet, she sticks to blankets.
And I’m already surfing for the next project after that. Yes, I am completely obsessed.
