So, in order to get myself motivated to try a new skill I knew that I would need a goal. I hesitate to even say this goal... but, I think that I would like to knit & crochet through the Lion Brand Yarn catalog this year. The patterns are free and they range from beginner to experienced. There are some patterns in the catalog that I am not sure about; but I figure it would be a great place to start!
If you want to order a copy of the catalog (free), then go here: http://www.lionbrand.com/catalogDisplay.html
The first thing that I think I am going to attempt is a cowl... here it goes. :)
