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.
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!
