I have been a crocheter for about two years now. Unfortunately for me, I haven't had the time (or energy) to really sit down and learn some of the really neat stitches, or else I'd probably be making really awesome things right now! I can, however, create hats, blankets, washcloths (not too hard), flowers and other nifty little things just by using my own imagination, sans pattern. I haven't yet tried to write down the patterns I design, but I'm sure if I really wanted to I could come up with a few on paper.
My very first project ever was a baby-blanket I had planned to give to a friend who was expecting. However, at that time I didn't understand the concept of chaining one at the end of each row, and said blanket was rather.....crooked. So for the last few days I've been pulling all the stitches out of this horrid blanket so that I might begin anew. I have finished a few rows, and am liking the way it's turning out so far! I have so many friends with babies, and I feel like all I've been making are gifts to give away. I have thus decided that this creation will be saved for my own sweet babies! I am going to begin making little things here and there to put away for the time when I have my own children, which will be in two or so years, God willing.
I will be sure to post some pictures of my new project tomorrow, but for now, please accept my apology, I am pooped from a long day with some energetic babies, and simply must put my feet up and sip on a strong cup of tea! I do hope you are enjoying your day or night, wherever you may be!
See you tomorrow!
