My passion is needle felting, however, I also love crocheting. I have been crocheting since I was a little girl. Never really did much with it, just some scarves and a baby blanket here and there. I recently decided that I wanted to do more with it, so I went to a beginning crochet class at my local yarn store. I had a great time, and even learned a couple of new tricks.
I gave my step-mom and dad a crocheted kitchen towel and matching dish cloth for their new home. Mary was so excited to get the gifts, and said she wanted to learn to crochet. So I was able to teach her the basic chain, and the single crochet stitches. I am thrilled to be able to help her learn!
Monday I made my first cowl, basically a scarf that is pulled over your head to keep your neck warm, and can pull it up over your nose to help block the wind. I was so impressed with how quickly it came together, that I am now working on my third one! I've used 100% merino wool for one, Peruvian Cotton/modal/silk blend for another (thanks for the gift Kim!) and using a cotton type yarn for the one I started this morning.
Will post some more pictures as soon as this last one is completed. I made one yesterday for myself, and the one I started today is for my oldest daughter. She has asthma and the wind takes her breath away, so hopefully this will help prevent attacks.
