Completed: My first crocheted anything

So, I know I started that Hetty Cardi, and am itching like a crazy person to finish it. BUT, I got super stuck at the underarm lace, so I put it aside for a bit. My mom always told me, that if I get frustrated and stuck, I need to set it down, walk away, and relax. I did just that. I may or may not have ended up on Pinterest.

I found this pattern for an ADORABLE fox face basket for my yarn stash. (Some of, it’s quite small). Anyway, I just had to have it! Unfortunately, it’s a *crocheted* basket for your knitting things……yeah. Thought about knitting it…..but nah. Thought I’d just teach myself how to crochet! It only took about an hour or so to learn, thanks YouTube! I started the basket, and it’s coming together really quickly. I am waiting to receive the Sugar N’ Cream Country Red yarn in the mail, because apparently, no one in this town carries that color. So, I have a half finished basket mocking me from my end table.

Decided to keep going with my crocheting mojo, so I made a flower coaster! Constantly inspired by Mollie Makes, I absolutely had to!

It’s super cute, and I plan to make a million more.

Hetty Hetty Bo Betty…..

So after about TEN different attempts, I have finally found my groove for this beautiful pattern. I have had it sitting my queue since I decided that I was going to learn how to knit a cardigan.

The lacework is so beautiful, and I can’t get over this color. I found it at this new place not too far from home called Sip n’ Knit. That’s right, wine and knitting. Yep.

Ending the night with knitting and the League on my couch.
