I’m taking a beginners crocheting class and last night I completed my first project – a beanie hat. Holy moly, I made this. And it fits. It actually fits. If you knew the limited extent of my craft skills, you’d understand that this is almost a miracle in my books. I’m terrrrible at craft projects. Even the easy stuff. Even projects for kids. Toddlers in daycare produce better crafts than I do. Lol.
The inspiration for this sudden interest in the field of woven fiber textiles? Well, blame it on my last road trip. I found myself sitting in the passenger seat crumpling up yet another finished bag of snacks and knew then I had to find something, anything, to distract my hands on road trips or else I’d stop fitting into my clothing. The options were to take up crocheting/knitting or exercise more. So here I am in beginners crocheting.
With the hat done, we’re on to our next project which is infinitely harder – a shrug – comprised of front & back post double crochet stitches. OH BOY. This was as far as I got after an hour of class…oy vey.
