first granny motif wrap! completed!

I just put the finishing touches on the first “real” thing I’ve crocheted. The actual first thing I made was a scarf which doesn’t really count since a) I own a million scarves, and b) I did it mainly for practice. As soon as I figured out how to read the crochet lingo (chain 3, 15 dc in ring; join with slip st to top of beginning ch-3; etc), the actual work was pretty easy and I enjoyed it immensely! Mom tried to teach me how to crochet way back when I was 10 or so, but of course I didn’t want to learn. Matt’s Mom insisted on teaching me a month or two ago, and now I’m hooked! Sorry, the pun was partially intentional. Here’s a picture.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

  1. OMG, I love that!!! We are seriously doing a girl’s night, and you are teaching me. My old friend, Cassie, does crochet too. She makes baby hats…check out her website super cute! BTW, answer my phone calls, lady! Don’t make me show up at B&C one day, LOL.
