Because I Crochet
Do you want to know why I have been spending all my free time in the past 3 months crocheting?
I got a new job!
I’m working at a yarn company developing a new secret crochet project! I can’t tell you everything yet, but if you are a crocheter too, it would help me a lot if you would pop over to take this 5 minute survey about crochet.
After you do that (and you can enter to win a $100 Visa card when you complete the survey), come back and I’ll show and tell some of the crochet projects I’ve been working on lately!
My Crochet Show & Tell
Crocheted Easter Baskets
I crocheted some quick Easter baskets for my four sons — each of these took about an hour.
Puff Stitch Beanies
I started crocheting hats to practice with different yarns and techniques, and discovered that puff stitch beanies are a lot of fun to make!
(I called my hat crocheting the Heather Hat Project and ended up making 20+ hats of various styles and yarns).
Granny Square Welcome Mat
I made a giant granny square welcome mat for my cubicle at work (it also kind of looks like a flag for Granny Square Nation).
My sons started making requests, and the 11yo asked me to make a “black and rainbow” neck warmer (aka cowl), and I loved how it turned out so much that I made the exact same design a second time but stitched the top up into a hat.
I started crocheting afghans a few years ago. I didn’t know if I would make it through ONE because it was such a big project, but I had so much fun changing colors and yarns that it kept me going.
And then I made TEN MORE. I call them my “Epic Afghans.”
So that’s where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. Do you crochet too? Let me know in the comments, and please go take my survey!
