As a young girl, my grandma taught me all the crochet stitches. What she did not teach me was how to read a pattern. So, while I could make a mighty nifty potholder, that was about it.
Then my dear friend and crochet tutor taught me how to read a pattern back in January, and I had been cranking out baby hats like a woman possessed. However, there are only so many baby hats a woman without babies currently in her home really needs.
On to a new project.
I started these mittens on my trip to Washington DC back in March and worked on them whenever I had "travel time". My handwork bag goes with me in every vehicle! And I get a lot of projects done that way.
Hubby tried them on and wants a pair of gloves and a matching hat.
I should count it as a huge success that he's making requests, right??
