Okay, well, technically crochet happens. At least, it does in my casa. But “Knit Happens” is a way more compelling title than “Crochet Happens” or, its rival, “Hey! Crochet!” So “Knit Happens” it is.
What in the heck am I babbling on about? Well, I’ve re-ignited my love of crocheting. And by “re-ignited,” I actually mean “ignited”, since, though I’ve tried my hand at crocheting numerous times since I was a wee munchkin, I never actually SUCCEEDED at crocheting until this past month. The impetus was seeing the gorgeous afghans a friend made and deciding that, yes, it was worth trying to learn to crochet one more time.
So, behold my first project: a stripe-y scarf for my little sis in her school colors (Go Herd!). I found the pattern in a book that is clearly for young girls circa 1997 (which, in fact, I was in 1997). Along with this scarf, there are pattens for making your very own floppy hat a la Blossom and cases for your CDs. Jackpot!
