I never expected to love crocheting as much as I do. Here are a few examples of the projects I’ve finished since I learned this hobby last September.
Not that I’ve advanced to expert levels or complex patterns. Never tackled a baby dress, hat or booties; no sweaters or shawls (yet); no little stuffed animals that seem to be so popular right now.
I try to learn a new stitch or technique with each new project. But mostly I just pick out patterns that look pretty, or items I think my friends or family would enjoy. For Christmas, I had so much fun making surprises for each of the women in my Monday morning Bible study.
There’s always something I’m working on, and it feels so relaxing to pick it up and work with my hands after a stressful day. (Thanks to my husband for the title of this post; he said this as I was working on another afghan to use up extra yarn.)
