Even though we are still several days away from St. Patrick's Day I wanted to share some "green" photos this week. (and wait until you see what I have planned for St. Patrick's Day itself. You'll never guess!)
I've been crocheting for some 40 years now. I don't do as much as I used to, for various reasons, (mainly FarmVille and blogging!) but I still crochet a gift or two a year, and I also work on crochet projects when I am on the road, since my loving spouse does the driving.
I haven't really blogged much about it (well, maybe not at all) until now but crochet has been a treasured part of my life. My Mom wanted to teach me to crochet but rheumatoid arthritis robbed her of her ability to do any needlework by the time I was old enough. Instead, a high school friend taught me, and I've never looked back. But although she didn't teach me, I still feel a link to my Mom whenever I pick up that hook.
I wanted to share a couple of the projects so I can also get them up on Pinterest. These are both projects I worked on 20 or more years ago. I got the afghan pattern from a magazine that no longer exists, I believe.
I have no idea where I got the pattern for the Christmas stocking. But there is a special reason why the stocking has shamrocks on it...I'll let you guess why.
Do you have a favorite time or place to crochet? Have you found your online life interferes with your needlework hobbies?
