Seriously I am. Either that or I have many talents that should not be wasted. You be the judge. My friend Katie first taught me how to crochet when we were in high school. I started a quilt, which is #1 obviously not done and #2 I cannot for the life of me find it. Maybe my mom knows where it is….
After I learned to crochet, I made a LOT of scarves. They sucked; honestly they were stiff, and ugly, bleh. But at the time I thought they were awesome and gave them to my future in-laws as Christmas gifts, why they still accepted me into the family I don’t know.
In college, I found another “old lady” friend, Brenda. Sophomore year we lived across the hall from each other and soon discovered that we were destined to be best friends. On a typical Saturday night, you would find us sitting in my dorm room, knitting, watching chick flicks (most likely crying), and eating tons of pizza. *That was living*
Over the years (seriously I am not that old), I have toyed with knitting here and there and made a few scarves.
There were some good ones, and some that were so bad I did not want to finish…
That scarf was promised to my friend Kelly in college, but I did not like the stitching so I stopped working on it, but never fear my friend, I have found a stitch I like, and will be finishing this scarf ASAP.
The scarf above was just ugly so I stopped working on it, haha. Maybe it would be good for a little girl.. hmmm… anyone have any little girls that like pink?
I also made this AWESOME Hokie scarf!
But lately, under the helpful wing of my amazing momma, I learned a new stitch.
This is my newest scarf, I love the color and I love the way it looks. I finished it last night and I am SO happy with it.. onto my next project 🙂
I went to Michael’s yesterday and bought a lot more yarn…
to add to my already ridiculous amount of yarn..
I might have a problem.
I took my purple scarf over to our friend’s house on Wednesday night, and received some very positive reviews, so I have been toying with the idea of opening an Esty.com store 🙂 I am nervous but I really want to do it.
Old lady, or just crafty?- I think a little bit of both…My friend Jenny told me she would stab me in the eye with my knitting needle if I brought it over to a football watching party…love her.
