Happy Monday everyone!! Today's post isnt really a project I can teach you (yet) but its a project I have been working on for a while. I dont know when it started but it seems that the crochet trend is back by popular demand. I love crocet hats and scarves and decided I wanted to learn as well. I bought some supplies and had my mom and Geri teach me the basic single stitch.
I did want to share a really great website with you, Lion Brand Yarn has a great website with videos and print outs, free patterns and of course yarn and supplies. I love that this company has all these free resources to show you how to crocet. I watched the video to figure out the beginning slip knot but needed someone to actually sit with me and show me the chain, Im really not a great visual learner but I caught on eventually. If you are interested in learning how to crochet go check out Lion Brand Yarn, see their resources and buy some of their yarn (I really like martha stewart styles) and get started.
I did realize though that this may be a hard project for me, my joints get really stiff when I do this and that may just be because I am just learning and my fingers are a little too tense but I have to take frequent breaks to let my hands rest. So just be patient and keep with it dont give up keep plugging along. I cant wait to share more crochet adventrues with you!
Any of you out there crochet? I would love to hear some tips you have or your favorite pattern, share with us!
