My friend Brittany taught me a few basics back in February, but honestly the warmer it got the less I wanted to learn more. I am pretty sure this is a fall and winter craft for me. Also, Cameron and I have been working on not watching so much TV, and this is the perfect chill out activity for me.
Thanks to youtube videos and a few blog tutorials, I made a cowl which I LOVE and I am working on a large infinity scarf right now, but I wanted to learn something new so I watched a few more youtube videos and worked on some new stitches (exciting stuff right?) I took apart the scarf I made in February (it was never really the right length) for some practice yarn.
Then I cam across these cute little crochet bows and I knew this is what I wanted to try next. Now I can't stop making them! Each one gets a little better, and I modified the tutorial I was following a little bit to better suit me. I plan on attaching them to everything!
So today for MY FAVS (a weekly link up with Meghan and Katy) I am sharing some of my resources that helped me get back into it. Also just random youtube searches when I don't know how to do a stitch help a lot!
Next I am working on being able to follow patterns from others and not just replicate what I am seeing someone do. Any great and easy patterns you know of to get me started?
Do you have a hobby you dropped? Get back into it! I am having so much fun learning something new and crafting is good for you!
