Crochet 101 here I come
Isn't this a delightful work of art that seems too good to be destined for a life of pins? My gorgeous friend Trace from here made it for me as she knows how much I admire her creations and that I am on a path to be more creative this year.
So I am extremely proud to announce that I have in fact made an actual committment to being more crafty and have enrolled in a Beginners crochet class starting in a few weeks at this wonderful place . It will be my birthday around then so Legoman looking after the kids for three Saturday afternoons in a row while I get to be frivolous and crafty will be the best present a girl could ask for.
My other source of inspiration is this beautiful cardi made by the endlessly talented Kate from here and my dream is to learn enough to be able to make one of these for Liongirl. Hopefully I'm not being overambitious.
I must mention that I'm very excited to have worked out not only how to add a link but also a photo during this one post! Apologies Kate if this is not the right way to showcase someone elses work/inspiration - is there meant to be text underneath the photo as well?
So now the pressure is on to actually produce some work of my own and follow through on my plans. I kind of like having this sense of responsibility to the blogging world to come up with the goods so to speak. Otherwise I am sure I would just float around dealing with domestic hazards of the day and have nothing to show for it for another year.......
