Monday, January 29, 2007 the crochet bug and it hurts

After reading the inspirational ramblings of Bella Dia I have succumbed to crochet. I kneel at the feet of the person that invented this fabulous craft. I love it. It took me a whole weekend to figure out but I am definitely loving it. But man does it eat up the yarn. Here I am thinking I will use all the small balls of left over yarn for this little lap throw/afghan. Brilliant idea yes? Except when you realize you are running out and have to actually PURCHASE yarn for your stash busting project. I know, counterproductive but necessary. So after much toil I am almost finished this little project. The Bella Dia pattern and tutorial is available on her website and it is loosely based on the one that Yarnstorm did a month or so ago. Now I am not quite a novice yet (I only know how to chain, single crochet and double crochet) but I am an apt pupil and plan to continue learning more and more. I must admit however, there are only certain items that interest me that are crochet made. Blankets and such are lovely and I want to learn the granny square thing. 200 Crochet Blocks is next on my purchase list.

I am still on the pincushion wagon and will continue to whip up more of those little cuties. In the mean time there are kids to feed, drive, and yell at so if you will excuse me...
