Crocheted Scarves March 18, 2008

     It’s March, and I am already thinking ahead to Christmas.  (FlyLady would be so proud!) 


     Alex brought home a spool knitter he’d been working with at school, and I had to go get a crochet hook for him to use with it.  Being in Michael’s, surrounded by yarn, made me think of my grandma and how she taught me to do a basic crochet stitch.  One thing led to another, and $35 later, I walked out of the store with several balls of yarn and a plan to crochet not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR scarves for my kids as “Mrs. Santa” gifts.  (Am I crazy?  Don’t be so quick to answer, okay?)


     I’ve already done four inches on Alex’s, and about 2 1/2 on Kendra’s.  I can see the appeal of crochet and/or knitting.  It keeps your hands busy and frees your mind to wander, which is something I don’t get when I’m cross-stitching.  I like that there’s no counting;  no pattern to follow.  The only downfall is that my carpal tunnel is killing me. 


     If I keep working at this pace, I’ll have them done by the end of summer.  Merry Christmas in July!



UPDATE:  I finished the scarves!  You can read about them here.
