54. re-learn how to crochet… CHECK!!
categories & archives >>

My mom taught me to crochet when I was just starting high school. I don’t know what made me want to learn, but as soon as I did, I was unstoppable. I made scarves for every single one of my friends. I made up my own patterns. I sketched designs of scarves I imagined but didn’t want to forget by the time I finished my current project.

I always wanted to create different projects, you know, other than just a lot of repeating rows, but I got frustrated with the mitten pattern and making a sweater didn’t seem all that appealing to me, so I stuck with scarves. Until now. I saw some really adorable baby photos over on Tim Will‘s blog done by Gray Benko and thought “hmm, I bet I could crochet some baby props.” And by golly I did. The great thing about baby props is that they’re so teeny-tiny! I love projects that are teeny-tiny! :-)

*note* I did not crochet the bowl or the box. Those are from Target. :-)

This teal yarn is a project that is in progress, but I just had to share it anyway.

Now I’m just waiting for my brides to deliver those babies!!! To my knowledge, four of my 2010 couples are expecting. From my 2009 weddings, five have babies and one is due soon. Also, my bank teller is due any day now and I gave her my business card so we’ll see if she calls. :-)
