Crocheting can be addicting! I think I’m hooked. I like that it makes my imagination go wild and encourages me to be think better when it comes to making my crochet look good. If only I had plenty of time to crochet…hmmmm. Anyway, because I still have several skeins of yarn, I thought of something to do with it. Reading crochet blogs gives me tons of ideas. But given my yarn supplies at the moment, I can only do a few projects.
One weeknight, I watched this tutorial on You Tube about making chevron/zigzag/ripple effect on crochet and decided to make a short chevron cowl using Gantsilyo Guru Selections’ (pantone) blue and ivory milk cotton yarn and a 3.75mm (US 5) hook. The result was more than I hoped for!

I’ve always wanted to learn how to crochet. I got busy with adult life and the responsibilities that came with it but the urge to crochet was always there.

Crocheting allows me to do just that and more!

Last weekend flew by so quickly. Before I knew it, it was already time to go back to work. But it’s okay because I can’t imagine doing nothing all week. I need to be productive so I’d have a reason to relax and do fun things after. Haha.
I spent most of Saturday crocheting. I’ve finally finished my first project. It was supposed to be for me but my measurements were wrong. Very wrong! Ang liit ng nagawa ko, pang-baby na halos! Lakas nga ng tawa ni Mame, inaasar ako, hahaha. I’m going to give it to one of my godchildren who’s still a baby. I’m 100% sure it will fit her.
