Crocheting - Making an OLD thing NEW again....


Crocheting used to be my THING.  When I was expecting my babies, I crocheted blankets for them.  And baby sweaters, and sweaters for me, and doilies, and afghans.  Many things have come and gone.  But many things have stayed.

Recently I have started crocheting again after a break of many many years....My grandsons needed cute little hats.  So I made a few.  Which led to making more.  And now I am crocheting all the time.  It is good to have something to keep my hands busy while I sit in the car on road trips.   I have also had a friend visit several times so she could learn how to crochet.

But I digress....
I have been thinking about all the things I have crocheted in the past and started looking around my house to see what I still have.  It was fun to see it all, so I thought I would share some of my creations with you, my blog readers.

 I haven't crocheted very much in this decade until now.  I had forgotten how relaxing it was.  I had forgotten how fulfilling it is to see something wonderful materialize in your hands from a ball of string.  I hope you enjoy looking at my memories of this.

And stay tuned for new and fun things that will come as my rediscovery of CROCHET!!!
