Yesterday’s post was about why I knit. Today’s is about my picking up crocheting a year ago.
For all the same reasons as wanting to learn to knit, such are the ones for learning to crochet with one additional reason.
It seems that crocheting goes faster, especially when it concerns a hat.
While waiting at two appointments on Monday, I completed a simple hat out of bulky yarn that reminded me of the color of straw, but is way more comfortable for a scalp that has lost hair due to chemotherapy. I just need to add a flower to finish it.
It was convenient to tote along and once the increases were done, I didn’t have to look at the pattern again. Single crochet stitch is the only stitch required for this one.
I didn’t stress about the wait, and I got something done while I waited.
My sister Louann taught me how to crochet last summer at our annual Sister Retreat, and I have enjoyed it ever since.
Other projects I’ve completed since then are a plethora of hats for cancer patients, some baby blankets, sachet pouches, coasters, and flowers for embellishing the gray baby hat below.
For pictures of most of my completed projects (knitted and crocheted) join Ravelry and you can see them all. My Ravelry link is in the sidebar.
