We all know what happened this year. It was a challenging year for everyone and we all had a lot of extra time on our hands that we really never had before! My husband and I went through our own heartache, and through that, I needed something to keep my mind busy. I always remember how my granny crocheted us blankets and they were absolutely beautiful. You could see the love and patience she put into it, and I really wanted to know how she did it!
My mom lives in a different state where not as much was closed as where we were at, so she was able to send me my beginner crochet kit. After that I was hooked!!!! (Pun intended haha)
Me being the person I am, I jumped right into it and decided to try to make a blanket! Well that did not go exactly as I planned. So I started off much smaller. After try and error, I don't know how many times, it just suddenly clicked! Then I would have another click, and before i knew it, I was learning all I could about this form and I was in love. Not only was it a way to express myself but it made me feel so close to my granny. I have been able to share the love and joy that crocheting brings with my family and friends.
