I learned to crochet when I was a small child, probably about 8 or 9 I think, it was my hobby of choice and probably the only thing my mother ever taught me. As I grew up and became ‘cool’ I stopped crocheting and this craft was lost to me for many many years until recently. Even then, I felt like a grandma nerd sitting down to crochet and I felt lazy. I felt like I should be up working not sitting down crocheting like an old grandma. Of course I am a grandma, I just don’t like to portray it LOL!
These days, I crochet when I have the chance which is mainly at night after dinner when hubby and I sit and watch the tele. My most favorite project is the granny square (there’s that word again!) but I also enjoy crocheting fruit. Crochet is very relaxing, I can unwind while I crochet and it keeps my hands busy so I am not in the kitchen looking for after dinner snacks! Currently I am working on this granny square blanket in blue, it will go to one of my grandsons as a keepsake. I have other projects on the go also, which is the sign of a true crafter apparently….I think its the sign of a menopausal woman that can’t make up her mind which project to finish first!
