10. Learn to Crochet

I won't lie; I've already written out and typed up my '21 before 22' list to post on Thursday. I am so thrilled about this list! As it turns out, I'm already able to cross something off (is that allowed?!). I've been knitting for years and have always been interested in crocheting, but I have just not been able to fully wrap my head around it each time I've attempted to learn. This weekend I stumbled upon these YouTube videos and gave it another shot. Beth, who guides the tutorials explains every move very simply and I was surprised at how easy it was to pick up on once I got into the rhythm of it. I have been crocheting up a storm ever since! It is so fun! I'm not sure exactly what I'll do with all these little "granny squares" I have floating around now, but I'm thinking of sewing them together to make an afghan at some point.

Do you do any yarn or needlework? If so, I'm curious as to how you were taught! What projects are you working on now?


  1. your granny squares look great! isn't youtube awesome? :) it's how i learned, too.
