a little bit o’ crochet

good afternoon! hopefully you are enjoying this last little bit of above zero weather until it turns tundra-esque.

our chunky thread by Lori Holt arrived yesterday, so i set to work on getting the display up and everything marked. then last night after the last episode of the Ted Bundy Tapes i set to work on crocheting up a granny square.

i haven’t crocheted in i bet 5 years…so i pulled up lori holt’s video and i pulled up some other videos and once i got started it didn’t take long to do a couple rounds.

i’m planning on a granny square afghan eventually but for now i’m going to make a little pincushion and maybe a pillow or 2 down the road.

we’ve got the basic grey, white, and brown bigger skeins and then sampler packs 1, 2, and 3 and 4 is on order. we’ll be filling in with more colors as we get more projects done.
