Remember this pathetic post? I have been wanting to learn how to crochet for so long! I tried teaching myself using books, YouTube videos, tutorials, etc., but I just could not get it. Enter the Crochet Along at Maybe Matilda. I was determined to get it this time. I bought the materials (the fun part) and prepared myself for a night of tears and throwing things as I sat down to - once and for all - learn crochet.
Guess what? No tears, no throwing things. I got it, thanks to this post and this post and this post where Rachel walks through the different kinds of crochet stitches and then the specific stitches used in the pattern she chose for the crochet along. Victory!
So anyways, I am crocheting away and even made a couple granny squares. Eeep! I am about to do this to my whole house:
Kidding. kind of.
It's been a couple of weeks since I had a five things friday, so I thought I would share five crochet projects I am crushing on right now.
(just in case you don't want to actually crochet)
Sigh. So pretty.
If you like, you can find more crochet inspiration on my crochet pinterest board.
I just love the vibe that you get from a good granny square project. It's all homey and cozy and comforting. What? You didn't know that granny squares gave off vibes. Well, now you do.
Hope you all have a great weekend full of crocheting or knitting or whatever else gives you some good vibes.
