Over the holidays, I decided I was going to learn how to crochet. I had known how to crochet once upon a time (third grade maybe?) but as far as doing it now, no. Well, I can crochet the little bit that is needed to knit--for a provisional cast on, to tighten up an edge--but not really Crochet with a capital C skill crochet. I really want to make granny square blankets. That is my only reason, honestly. I've loved Granny Square blankets since I was in first grade. My friend Andi had a Granny Square blanket in her living room. I loved that blanket, with the multi-color flowers surrounded by black fronds. I'm sure it was acrylic. Everything was in the 80s. I've wanted a Granny Square blanket ever since.
So I started with a booklet (possibly the one Andi's mom used--look at how dated that is!).
Of course, I've also been hanging out with this little one.
Oh yes, classes started again. I'm trying to figure out how to balance everything. I think I've got all the assignments written on three different calendars--desk, phone, and wall. I do love the act of checking things off a list!
