Crochet Me A River

One of the best memories I have is learning to crochet with my Grandma. When I was between 10 and 12, my Grandmother taught me to crochet. Crocheting is more difficult to some than knitting, but for me it’s the opposite. I never learned to knit, but I’m great at crochet.

I loved being able to take yarn and a needle and create something from almost nothing. Through a simple rotation of my hand, loop of yarn and turn of a needle I was able to chain, single, double and triple crochet. Not only was I able to perform simple crochet stitches, but a number of other pretty patterns as well. 11081385_10203816254750779_9054307799800082883_n

It was hard to get the hang of it at first, but after a while I was able to create scarves, towels, potholders, blankets. Eventually I started picking up pattern books with various projects and stitches. Once, I even crocheted a bikini!

Recently I started crocheting again. My current project is slippers! It’s relaxing to crochet and listen to music, or watch TV. Every fall, one of my favorite things to do is watch movies (Especially halloween movies!) and work on a new crochet project to unwind after a long day.

Have you crocheted? Tell me about it!

  1. I used to crochet a little when I was younger. I did more knitting than anything else. It’s something that I kind of want to get back into now that I have a little more patience than I did. My grandmother tried to teach me how to crochet. What’s your favorite thing that you’ve made? Do you have pictures of your progress on your slippers?

    1. I tried knitting once, but for some reason crochet was easier to me. My favorite thing that I’ve made was a small blanket I made for my sister when I was younger. At the time she was really young, I was getting into crochet and picked up a number of projects such as blankets. I don’t have any pictures of the slippers yet, but as soon as I can I will post a follow up blog on the finished slippers & my experience with them!

    1. Unfortunately I don’t knit, though I would love to learn! I tried on my own once and just couldn’t get the hang of it. What’s surprising is that I have often heard it is easier than crochet, but that hasn’t been my experience.
