Thanks to Youtube and my Mama I have become obsessed with Crochet. My Mama taught me the chain stitch and the single stitch when I was about twelve years old. I wasn’t patient enough to actually make anything other than a barbie blanket and friendship bracelets back then, so I didn’t get too far with it.
Fast forward about twenty years later I was watching Youtube (which is another obsession of mine) and It automatically played a video on how to make a granny square. Instead of cutting it off I decided to watch it. Next thing I know I am looking at yarn and buying a beginner’s crochet kit.
I know you can learn just about anything from Youtube. I never thought about looking up crochet. Youtube has been a HUGE help! There are lots of great videos to learn from on there.
So, at the moment I have 3 projects that I am working on. Two of them are blankets and one is placemats for my table. It’s really hard not to start new projects all the time. The internet has all kinds of awesome ideas for me!
Now I find that I have the patience and that crocheting actually calms my nerves. Everytime I feel stressed out, I pull out my projects and work on them.
