well, with some helpful tips from a lot of you.....i think i am well on my way to actually crocheting! THANK YOU!!! i have surfed tutorials, watched videos and actually managed to MAKE something.
wanna see it:? its a dishcloth..... (hiphiphooray)
OH and another one :)
thanks to my friend JAMIE she turned me onto the lion brand website. they have a TON of free patterns and even how to videos.
i am trying to find a nice easy pattern for my first afghan. i have seen some really cute ones that are so much like a quilt. i found a 9patch that im dying to make. maybe ill take my dad to the yarn store with me today and have him help me get some easy to work with yarn. he is the one that taught me the double crochet :)
im going to retreat to my "mom cave" later tonight and work on some other projects i have going. but right now, its time to hit some garage sales, go buy some bushes for my yard, and take my family out to breakfast. its a beautiful weekend here in the desert southwest. its going to be around 70 all weekend.
