I am loving Crochet!

As you will notice, all two posts I’ve done this year have been about crocheting… I know I said I’d do one about my books—and I will—but until then, I want to share my latest project with you…

Can you guess what it is?…

I bought this kit at Costco about a months ago, which is why I really wanted to take up this terribly addictive hobby.  The kit came with the yarn to make two figures, and out of the two, Captain America was the one I liked, so, I started with him…

One thing I struggle with in crocheting is the concentration, which I think I mentioned in my last post.  When I was making his legs, I lost count on the SC a couple of times, which is why the one is a little bit fatter than the other.. though, I’m not sure if the one is small because I left something out, or if the other one is bigger because I added something…

Always helps to wear a smile.

The pattern in the book calls for his helmet instead of his hair, but I wanted him to have his hair.  I just used the pattern for Hawkeye’s hair and it worked just fine.  I think I’ll still make Cap’s helmet someday, but first things first I need to make his shield. . .

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.
