Wednesday inspiration

I've been trying to teach myself to crochet. I need to make some granny squares for the next RVA project but I just can't seem to figure it out. I did make much progress, however, after reading Silje's advice on her little bird crafts blog. Definitely check out her post if you're trying to learn. She's got some amazing scrapbooking photos there too.

Then today, I was referred to do you mind if i knit by Danielle Thompson (another amazing blog, btw). Isn't this scarf the most beautiful thing you've ever seen???

I think I just may have to sign myself up for a crochet class. In other news, I've been busy cleaning, cooking, nesting, and drinking pumpkin spice lattes. The whether is a tad more Fall-like this week and I'm taking full advantage. I'm hoping for a date night with Darryl this weekend to see this movie. And I just might dig out the Halloween decorations tomorrow.

I just realized it will officially be October 1st in 26 minutes. Happy October everyone!

That scarf is so cute! I have also tried to learn to crochet and if I don't practice I forget in about 5 minutes. I've found the best resource are the crochet books written for children--the only ones with useful directions!

The scarf is great I can crochet but haven't been able to figure out the granny squares yet but I am still trying!

That scarf is awesome! I've been knitting for years, but I haven't quite figured out crochet. Sigh. I hope to learn one day. I'm obsessed with the Babette blanket that was floating around a few years ago: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=babette%20blanket&w=all

I took a crochet class this past spring. I am so glad I did! I learned the basic stitches then went on youtube and watched tooons of videos. Now I crochet ALL the time! This last weekend I tried granny squares. So much fun!
