i ♥ crochet

crochet on the go // awesome Chevron bag from aPearantly sew 
finished project, I think it goes well with my pjs
It's not obvious or anything I am really enjoying this adventure into learning to crochet.
I have actually finished my first crochet project. I am calling it a circle scarf. It wraps around three times and is quite cozy. I admit I had the idea for it in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. I also admit it is probably done improperly because made it up as I went along and followed no directions (if you have been around here for a while you know I don't do well with directions anyway). That said, I am going to try to learn from some books Jacqui suggested and search for more videos.
As for my green yarn project, I have started over and over again. I can't quite decided what I am going to do, and every time I start I get frustrated. I am starting to think it's the yarn's fault. I guess not all yarn is created equal.


Speaking of crochet, aren't these so pretty? I ♥ handmade.

PS. From now until I get an fancy new camera IG pictures are going to be all I have to share. Blog-life goes on. If you want to buy me a new one I will be happy to provide my mailing address, I accept money orders and personal checks. #ijoke

  2. So pretty, Lindsay! You inspire me to try it. Since my Granny knit and crocheted a lot, I think I should take it up :) I'm def going to look into this!

  3. Love your scarf. My favorite stuff to crochet are things with no pattern and only a vague direction. I don't like to think when I crochet, but I love looking down and seeing something wonderful I've created. Usually a scarf or blanket, but at least I get to play with different stitches!

  6. So fun! I love the mustard yellow. And I think Instagram photos are great--although I'm sorry to hear about your camera! Did it break? Not a good thing to happen to an artist (or to anyone, really) at all! But I'm happy to see that life goes on with a smile ;).
