Excuses, excuses...

Why haven't I been doing much quilting lately, you ask? Well, I'm sorta trying my hand at crocheting. Some women I work with crochet on Thursday's and asked if I'd be interested. It sounded like a good idea. I need something to do while I'm waiting to pick up the kids from practice/games/school/etc.

(I have my iPhone which would be sufficient. But I like the idea of doing something PRODUCTIVE with my time.)

So here's the start of my first project.

I'm pretty terrible. And I refused the crochet ladies' suggestion of using thicker, solid yarn. I tried plan gray and it was so BORING. So I bought this skein thinking I'd make a scarf. If you crochet you're laughing at me right now because you know that one small skein isn't enough for a scarf. And the fact that I chose a hairy wool instead of thicker cotton. Yet I'm still plugging away. Because the love the colors. They're so pret-ty! Whether I can make something useful is questionable. Time will tell.

Very impressive so far! I was going to ask you how it was going. The yarn is really pretty.

It is looking good so far. Keep at it and you will be a crocheting fiend before you know it.
