1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First couple crochet projects on: August 16, 2011 05:23:17 PM
I learned to crochet last month while I was stuck in bed with Lyme disease.  I made a couple test pieces to learn the stitches then off I went.
First real project: crochet mouse toy stuffed with cat nip


Next I tried tapestry crochet (I think that's what it's called?)


Then I started on my big charity project.  My mom does mission work in Lithuania's rural areas and they take Christmas to some orphanages out there.  The kids get plenty of winter stuff but it is basic, generic stuff.  I wanted the girls to have something pretty and functional so I decided to make a set of a basic hat and the Luna Lovegood scarf (thanks to pinkleo for letting me use the pattern) to send to as many girls as I could.  I have until the first week of December so I am going to be crocheting my fingers off.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Good Projects for a Beginner? on: July 13, 2011 02:20:58 PM
I decided to learn to crochet after my illness worsened and has had me in bed more than usual (Even reading got boring after so many hours).  I watched some Youtube videos and now have a multitude of squares of the various stitches.  I made a catnip stuffed mouse for my cat as well but I want to do something other than mice and squares.
What are some good projects for a beginner?  I apologize if this has been asked before.  I searched but couldn't find a thread about this.
