It's never too late to learn something

I found a really neat crochet pattern that I wanted to try so I dug out the random bits of crochet cotton that my mom gave me ages ago and gave it a whirl. It’s been years since I’ve done anything more complicated than chains and single crochet stitches (Dean’s spaghetti monster hat) so I needed a book from the library to explain what the heck was going on. It’s a really easy pattern though and I’ve already got it memorized. I took a picture of where I was last night.

Asphyxiation In Progress

I’ve finished the multicoloured section and done more, but I don’t want to completely spoil the surprise so that’s all I’m willing to show for now.

In the middle of working on this project, I came across a link to a crocheted bookmark that I knew my mom would love and decided to do that too since her birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks.

Bible Bookmark

It only took a few hours to do, though now I have to figure out how to starch it and hope it keeps its shape in the mail.

  1. Awesome! Can’t wait to see the first one finished!

    You could send the bookmark in a book if you know of one she wants 😉
