My jewelry making hobby has evolved into a wire-weaving. I am having a blast! But I have found that when learning a new technique or planning a new piece, I need to take a break and let my mind work on it behind the scenes. And yet my fingers still need to be busy. I have added crocheting to my repertoire.
I am not starting from scratch; I used to crochet 25 years ago or so. I visited Ravelry in search of a simple baby blanket pattern to renew my skills. I chose the Cosy Stripe Blanket by Lucy of Attic24 She uses multiple colors whereas I used a variegated yarn.
I am making progress and feeling more comfortable. It’s a lot of fun!
When this baby afghan is finished, I will be donating it to Project Linus. A double win – doing something I enjoy and giving to those who need some extra help.
