Well here's my 1st post after a very long time of stalking the Craftster community. I have other projects waiting in the wings that I'm equally as proud of but this was a lifelong dream to learn to crochet.
My mom taught my sisters how but being the youngest I just didn't catch on. But I really wanted to. Last winter my fibro kept me housebound more than usual. So I got a book from the library and set about to teach myself. I picked it up rather fast considering my wrist was broken at the time (and I didn't know it yet!)
Life got busy and I never got around to making anything other than samples of each stitch I tried. But now with the colder weather coming again I got my yarn & hooks out and set about to find some great free patterns. Of course I found lots of amazing ones here. I also checked out Ravelry and found this pumpkin. It seemed easy enough and I had the right color yarn in what is a rather nice stash in the short 10 months since I first learned this addictive skill. There will more!!
Now be nice to me and I hopefully will get around to the other things I've made.
