A New Hobby you ever get bored? Wish you knew how "to do" something new? Well I had one of those moments...last summer!! I had been thinking about learning how to I bought a skein of for practicing on. Well that little skein of brown yarn sat in a bag..until October!! Many of you know that my grandmother recently passed away...the month before she passed we spent many hours at the hospital with her. I decided that practicing my crocheting would be a good thing to pass the I picked up my "K" hook and I began. After lots of practice, hints from my mom, Connie and whoever was around and knew how to crochet...I decided I had practiced ENOUGH!! So the gray scarf you see first creation! Not too shabby if I do say so myself. I have since made 2 baby blankets and am working on another scarf.

It has been nice to create see something transform from nothing something with a purpose and a use!! It has been fun. I am not a pro..but I do plan to pick up a book soon and learn how to read a pattern. I have to learn how to make my husband's I don't think I will venture past simple blankets, scarfs, afghans..etc..but I am really enjoying my new hobby!! It's not a great view..but below is the baby blanket I made for my new newphew...Bryce! It matches his room!

Your crochet looks great! i tried to learn knitting while I was out sick last fall, but it's too slow!!! Maybe, i'll go back to crochet. We are sorry to hear about your grandma. Please know that Jeff and I are praying for you and your family. So when ar you planning a trip to Chattanooga?
