Last year I walked into a craft store and found a massive box full of beautiful yarns that were on super sale. On impulse I decided that it was time to invest in a small basket of colors, just in case I ever needed them. I feel like I always pass up sales because I am not needing the item on sale directly at the moment. And then when I do need it I have to go out and buy it at full price. Not this time. Thankfully they had a variety of colors and I was able to choose some that made me really happy inside.
Lately I've gotten the hankering to learn to crochet... again. It seems like I have to learn everything over again no matter how many times I learn the trade. This time it was because of these. I've had my eye on this pattern for a while. So, to aid in my endeavors I gritted my teeth and also purchase this book. It's really hard for me to want to pay this kind of price for a book, I wish I could have found it at a thrift store. But so far it has been helpful!
I'll have to force myself to start out practicing with something easy. Wish me luck!
Do you crochet? Leave a link, I'd love to see!
