Lets’s talk Crochet…Projects So Far

Hello Everyone! My first hobby I started when I decided to branch out and try new things was crochet. I had crocheted in the past when I was maybe 10 or 11. Our house was never without what my mom endearingly called a hotspot (aka pot holder). So crochet was the first thing I came back to when I wanted to start taking up hobbies again. I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the projects I have done to date before I get into the projects that are still in progress.

The Very First

 

The very first project I completed (besides the multitudes of practice squares) was a pair of slippers. It took me a few days to complete. Now I can make a pair in a few hours.

Slippers

 

Living in Canada the next logical step… Winter ware! Next came hats, mitts and scarves. Anything to keep warm.

 

Although my works are far from perfect (the hat is too big, the scarf is too long and if you look closely every time I make a pair of mitts one is larger than the other lol) I ware them all the time with pride. One thing I have learned from crochet is it is not important if turns out perfect in the end. It really is all about the journey. Each piece is practice. I try a new stitch or technique or yarn. I get to learn with every step I take.

I will admit I don’t keep every piece I make, some get dismantled and the yarn recycled. But some times I even amaze my self. My favorite piece I have done to date is my tea cozy!

Doesn’t my tea pot look happy?

 

Well now you have seen a sampling of my projects to date. Next time I will show you what I have in progress. And please if you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you! I would love to hear about any projects you’re working on too. Hope to talk to you soon!

Let’s Try Everything

Hello, my name is Chelsea. This is my very first blog post ever. I really don’t know where to start. I want to write about everything! I guess I should start with what brought me here. I have always lived a simple life. Go to school, maybe see a movie with friends on the weekend and pretty much stay home and study the rest of my time. After school ended a large chunk of my routine was suddenly gone. I was feeling unfulfilled. But it isn’t until recently that I have been actually trying new things. As for the why I am writing this I guess I just wanted to share a piece of me with the world. So…with that being said… I guess what this blog will be all about is the new things I try. Most of the stuff I do is quite crafty. I love to crochet and have just taken up knitting but I also love to bake and paint and color lol. I do have a tendency to start projects and not finish them so I am hoping this blog will also help me finish things I start. I will document my journey while I work on new projects (and maybe while I struggle to finish old ones). I will also try to take pictures along the way or at least of the finish project. Proof that I did it!
