Mommy Monday

One of my goals for 2017 was to try new hobbies. Because, as a mom, my hobbies include balancing two children on my hips at the same time and laundry. SO. MUCH. LAUNDRY. One of the hobbies I wanted to try was crochet. My mom has been crocheting since she was about 12 years old and is super good at it. She’s tried to teach me before but I was never really able to grasp the concept.

However, a few weeks ago, she showed me again and something just clicked! I FINALLY got it!

I told Huff the Tot I’d make something for her. At first I told her I’d make her dolls a blanket. Buuuut, now I think its just going to be a scarf. I’m kind of getting tired of just doing row after row. Now that I’ve got it down, I want a bit of a challenge!

 

If you’d like to learn to crochet, here’s a link I thought gave great instructions! And here is a tutorial that’s also pretty great:

  1. I Crochet 🙂
    When I was pregnant with my second child, I crocheted a king sized Afghan for my bed. I made my son a baby blanket when I was going to hospital for stress tests during that pregnancy. I’ve made a couple scarfs and hats. My favorite stitch is a half double. It’s thick and quick.
