My new obsession ~ Crochet

By Terri Huntley

February 12, 2016

I have a new obsession ~ Crochet!!  I still love Kumihimo Braiding, however, Crochet is fast becoming an equal competitor.  We began carrying yarn at the store in the summer of 2015.  We started having crochet classes and of course I had to learn and take them all.  It has been a blast!

My first project was a small Granny Square (1 skein) blanket my dog has loved.  My next project was a headband.  I made several of these.  By now I had learned Double Crochet (dc), Single Crochet (sc) and Half Double Crochet (hdc).  My biggest challenge has been learning the codes and reading the patterns.  My new best friends are Ravelry and You Tube.  There are countless resources on the internet!

My first project on my own was from Ravelry.  It is a beanie that my husband wears constantly.  He LOVES it!  Isn't he a great model!  Here is the link to this cool Crochet pattern!  Brain Waves Beanie

We are also adding knitting classes this spring.  All of the classes are on our web site under the events calendar.  You can also like our Facebook page and look at the events.  We have scheduled classes up through April at this time.

You may also be interested in our Crochet Club which meets the 4th Thursday of every month at 6:00 PM.  We just had our first meeting in January and there were 14 of us there!  Come share in my new obsession and take a class.  It is so much fun!!!
