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.
