Apparently I Crochet Now

I tried to take up crocheting around Christmas last year, but I hit a little snag on my first project and got a little discouraged and put it down for awhile.  Then, during the move, I needed something to do that didn't require a lot of equipment while we were on the road or living in temporary housing with all of our stuff in storage and I finally worked up the gumption to give that old project one more try.

Here it is!

It is destined to be a pillow front. It's not actually finished. It still needs to be squared up and blocked and all of the ends need to be buried, but, you know, those steps are boring so they can surely wait.

My next project was a blanket for our new couch. I took tons and tons of pictures while I was making it, but then I dropped my phone in the pool and now there are only these two that I took today. Sad face.



I was going to finish this one, I swear, but then our couch hasn't been delivered yet and so this one also needs squaring and blocking and burying and all that good stuff. Do you sense a theme?

I had no idea how much yarn I would need to make a blanket, so with the leftovers from my first big blanket, I made this one.


Rupert helped with this one.



Cats and yarn, I'm tellin' ya.


Here it is all finished!




It's totally unfinished just like all of the other things I have crocheted so far. It's kind of my thing.
