A couple of weeks ago I wanted to begin a new craft... something that would be calming (since my life isn't) and peaceful (since again, my life isn't...).  I have heard others rave about crocheting and knitting being these things.  So, I thought I would start with crocheting.  I have knitted before... using a knitting wheel type thing.  Josh still wears the scarf on occasion :)

So, I bought a book to teach me how to crochet & my grandma (who is home arts extraordinaire) started some examples for me.  My mom also is quite good.  So, I have the tools to start.  I bought yarn that I LOVE, found some patterns to try and I have been off work and able to do it for 5 days now...  yet I haven't started.

Thing is, I am kind of afraid to start.  I feel like I never stick with things.  Or maybe I am afraid because I won't be able to make beautiful things out of the yarn.  Instead I will make a jumbled knotted mess. 

Hopefully today, I can get it together to start.

  1. You can do it!

    There are a lot of people at our church here in Hollywood that crochet during the church service.
