At long last…Crochet!

I dug around my blog looking for the post where I told you that my single solitary New Year’s Resolution for 2011 was to crochet. And I couldn’t find it anywhere. So strange. I really thought I’d blogged about that.

At any rate, my coworker Gail and I cooked up a plan in the spring for her to teach me to crochet some time when we were both working in the shop and it was really quiet. Then months went by, and we never had a chance to do it.

Fast forward to last Thursday. Gail and I found ourselves hanging about the shop without any customers. And we suddenly realized it was the chance we had been waiting for!!

Behold, a tiny crochet sampler, done by yours truly.

A chain, followed by one row each of single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, and then a bunch (or whatever you call that!). And after I finished that, she showed me how to do a little square.

My First Crochet!

I was so excited that the next day at work when it was Gail and I again, I picked up a crochet stitch dictionary and selected the Saturn Motif to try.

Watch out, world! I’m on a roll!

P.S. Reminder about the Secret Garden Fabric giveaway that ends on Wednesday!
