Product Of My Recent Hobby

So I have been crocheting a lot lately. I bring it almost anywhere with me if I think I will have a minute to continue a project. 

I am mainly making Christmas gifts for people. I have been wanting to show some of the project I've completed, but I can't show them till after I give the gifts (Don't want to spoil any surprizes!) :)

So, here is a picture of one of the little items I have made for a gift. I gave it to my friend for her birthday.

I learned basic crochet then I have been slowly growing in my ability to read patterns. That's how I am starting to do some more unusual crochet items. I google the patterns online and  print out anything that I want to try. 

Crochet is awesome because it is so relaxing. You can be involved in conversation, traveling or watching a movie and be producing something. 

Another cool thing is that as I have been talking about it to my friends, all these secret crocheters  have been coming out of the wood works. I have been having so much fun crocheting with others. I love it.
