Whew yesterday’s snowstorm was our first of the season! Definitely an evening to knit up a storm! It sure pushed me to crochet more of the tiny crochet hearts that I’ve been working on for my son’s valentine’s favors which I mention here. I still have a couple more to crochet but since I’m a perfectionist (yes I know no one is perfect but I do tend to beat myself up about it If I am not 100 percent satisfied) So most likely I will crochet a few extra to replace some. That’s a little over 30 tiny crochet hearts! Eek! So glad these are fast to crochet. I still have to finish them off by weaving in the loose ends and adding the pin backs. (Which I still have to purchased!) I hope I’ll be able to find them at my local craft store if not Etsy or Amazon will do.

Here’s a small preview…

  and to my lovely chicagoans stay warm!

One day my sister and I were at a Michaels’ store browsing; we decided to check out the knitting aisle. We were standing there feeling overwhelmed by how many hooks, needles, and various yarns with different textures and colors were available. We were discussing how much we both like to learn how to knit or crochet one day. But felt a bit timid by it. I’d had mention my sister-in-law has been knitting and crocheting for the past couple of years and so happens she was coming into town soon. She was generous enough to offer to teach me.  A second trip to Michaels’ to buy my first hook and yarn and a single crochet and purl later I’d learn how to crochet and knit. Three years later I haven’t let go of a needle or hook  ♥
