I have brain block!

February 26, 2008

When I was a little kid my Great Grandma Rosie taught me to crochet.  She taught me to chain, single crochet, double crochet, and how to form shells.  I only used those stiches for things with straight sides like scarfs or blankets. 

Now, I’m really starting to become interested in making differnet things so, I’ve been doing my research on the internet.  All you ladies out there with awesome crochet blogs should be very proud!! 

My biggest issue is learning to read patterns.  First of all, they’re all in code!  Dang it, I have to learn a whole new language.  Next, it is frusterating because when I look at a picture of something I’d like to make I know how to form all those stiches but, I can’t figure out the patterns!  

Why can I not wrap my brain around these things?  I’m trying people…don’t lose faith in me.  One day, I’m going to be reading patterns and creating fun things with the rest of you!

Here are some pictures of the baby blanket I made for my friend Meredith, who is having a baby at the end of April.  We don’t know if the baby will be a boy or a girl but, we do know that the blanket will be happy to warm either one!
