While in California, I asked my mom if she would teach me to crochet. She's been making baby blankets/afghans for Project Linus for three years, an organization that has volunteers across the country make blankets and afghans for children who are "ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need."  I thought crocheting would be something I would greatly enjoy, and I do, and I love being able to contribute to this project .  It took me a couple of frustrated days and botched pot-holders (thankfully, she was very patient with me!), but I completed my first blanket last night!

  1. Wow! I'm super impressed that you finished a blanket. Is crocheting pretty fast? I've spent the last 3 years making a scarf that is about a foot long so far. But only because I jump to another hobby after about a day...

  2. Ha, I've got lots of ideas and never follow through on any, so this is an accomplishment for sure! I'm way slow compared to mom, but I was surprised how fast it went once I got the hang of the rhythm of the stitches. I just spent a couple of hours at night on it and it was done before I knew it. You should try it :)
