Crochet

I’ve pretty much always wanted to learn how to Crochet, but never found the time to teach myself, or find someone to teach it to me.  Seems everyone I know who can crochet lives so far away…

A few years ago, I was given—for a birthday gift—a Winnie the Pooh Crochet kit.  Now, more recently, I bought myself another kit, and am finally teaching myself how to do it!

Before I try making any Hundred Acre Wood friends, or Superheroes, I’m just trying out the basic steps.

Here are my first attempts at it…

The first one was doing fine until I took a wrong turn, then the rest just kind of…

Well, after a few failed attempts to go on to a second row, (as you can see by number six, seven, and eight,) I finally got the hang of it—thanks to a Youtube video on crocheting.

And here it is! My first project—which was an accident.

I crocheted it, and it looked like a bell, so now we have yet another Christmas ornament  for the tree.

(And just to give you an idea of how big it is)

So, the reason I haven’t posted in such a long time is, I couldn’t get this site to work on the computer.  Then I couldn’t remember my password… but I got everything taken care of, and now I’ll try to post more in the future.

Oh, and I didn’t finish my NANO this passed November.  It was doomed from the beginning! I can’t write a love story when the love story is the only focus.  Not only that, the characters were boring and I just couldn’t find it in my heart to like any of them. Seriously, who wants to read a book where even the writer doesn’t like any of the characters?

I did finally get my 2014 NANO book through to Create Space and I now have my very own copy! I’ll do a post on that some other time.
