I've finally started a [much needed] hobby - crochet! Logan, being the wonderful husband he is, stopped at the store to get me a crochet hook and yarn. Besides that, a YouTube video was all I needed!
The first couple of days were pretty frustrating, because I couldn't get the yarn to actually look like anything. But yesterday it finally "clicked", and I think it's safe to say I mastered the single crochet stitch. Yay! And as soon as I finish this small square cloth (what can I say? I'm a beginner :) ), I'm hoping to learn other stitches so I can make cute stuff that I'll actually use.
Crocheting definitely breaks up my day quite a bit, since I would go from reading to TV to writing, and back to reading again. So I'm very glad I decided to take people's advice and learn something new! It's definitely giving me an opportunity to learn both patience and humility too. ;)
A coworker came by to visit today, and she dropped off a gift for Landon - a blanket that she crocheted! It's beautiful, and I now have something to look at for motivation. Gotta love how things work out sometimes. :)
