I decided as one of my many New Year's Resolutions to learn something new every month. So for January I learned how to crochet. My mom taught me a long time ago to make a simple blanket, but I wanted to learn how to read the patterns. After many long hours of trying to figure out what sc2tog and hdc means I think I got it. Here are the results so far:
My kids have loved watching these little guys come to life. The pattern is from Vanna's Choice: Easy Crochet Critters and can be found on Amazon.
Next I am going to try making a scarf. I found this beautiful pattern at Little Slice of Life.
Wish me luck. I am going to need it for this one.
For February I am taking a Pottery Class. I have always wanted to try it. I have had one class and it is so much harder then it looks. We were supposed to be making cylinders...as you can see mine turned out more like a bowl. Hopefully by the end of this month I will be able to show some major improvement and maybe even make a piece that I am proud of.
What are you learning new?
