I learned to crochet a few years ago. More than one person had tried to teach me prior to that. I ended up taking a class at a local yarn store, and finally something clicked. I have yet to make anything too demanding, because for some reason crochet and my brain just can’t get it together to be friends.
I do love me some granny squares though. I am currently working on what I believe will be a decade long project. It’s a rainbow blanket for my bed, all in granny hexagons. If I could go back and give myself some advice, I would totally pick different yarn for this king size blanket. I chose a very soft yarn, but it stretches and is kind of a nightmare for this kind of project. I am maybe 1/8th of the way though, which for all the starts and stops I’ve had on it, is actually pretty great.

I decided to keep the blanket on my bed, even though it’s not anywhere near finished. I really want to love and worship it, even if it’s still in the becoming stage. I really can identify with that![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
