I just love this yarn. It is from Hobby Lobby and it is called "I love this Yarn" Very soft, but yet very affordable. I had started the hat in a different yarn, but it was just too thick. So I had to use the smaller yarn. Want this look fabulous with a denim jacket. I plan to do a scarf in this same color and hopefully same stitch. Depends on if I am able to get the hat done.
You will probably see more Crochet post than any right now. As I have mentioned above, I have been doing a lot of thinking about my life. Things I spend my time doing and with whom I do them with. I love scrapbooking and cardmaking and its brought me such joy over the past years, but there are so limited amount of places you can do those things now. Stores are closing all around and its really hard to pack up everything and go to others homes. Space is so limited in the homes. So my answer to this problem is stay at home and scrapbook and go out and Crochet. All you need is your thread and needle and you are good to go. You can Crochet just about anywhere. Its easy to get together with friends and still have a great time. There is very little space needed for this hobby. A comfy chair will work just fine. I just totally am loving it right now. Its just what I need in my life. I just wish I had found this love when my MIL was living. My whole life might be different if I had not put so much time into scrapbooking and done more Crochet with her. Right now I am teaching my little girl about Crochet. She is learning the joys it brought her Nana through her Nana's old pattern books. I am seeing so many projects in these books that I remember my MIL doing. Telling her the stories. We have been walking down memory lane this past weeks. I even remember her giving me some of these projects we are finding in the books. Her favorite thing was making the little critters from Crochet. She loved making doll clothes, and all sorts of the craft stuff. She made the most beautiful Afghans ever. Every stitch was perfect. She would start one on a Sunday and finish on a Friday. I was always amazed at how fast she could get a Afghan made and how pretty they were. I may never be as good as her, but I know it will bring many hours of joy and will always make me think of her as I am doing it. I am so hoping that my sweet girl will learn to enjoy doing Crochet and it will be something her and I can share through the years together. So anyway..... Till next time.....
