Saturday a friend from church hosted a "Craft & Chat" night. Several of us ladies got together to eat and chat, and my friend taught some of us to crochet. When I was a little girl, I learned to do a chain stitch (just a long line of crochet stitches, not good for anything unless your Barbie needs a scarf!) Saturday I re-learned the chain stitch and also learned to do a single stitch and a double stitch.
My stitches are very loose, but that made it easier to learn. It was really fun! Yesterday I picked out some pretty yarn and let Chickie pick some out too. I think I will start out by making scarves for us, and if I'm still interested in this craft, I may branch out from there. It's an inexpensive craft, so I feel "safe" trying it out without any obligation to continue if I end up getting bored!
