One New Year’s Resolution down!

One New Year’s Resolution down!

So, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to learn how to crochet and knit. It’s one of those things I’ve wanted to do for years but never seemed to have the time to sit down and learn.  That whole being a teacher and grading papers every day thing got in the way of a lot of those kinds of resolutions. 🙂

I’ve been half-heartedly getting the hang of knitting, but it definitely takes a little longer and I need to practice more before trying to really figure out some of the patterns. But crocheting seemed more doable to me.

So, I’ve been eying this website called Craftsy because they have some fun classes for all sorts of various crafts/hobbies you might have. When Jared got me crochet hooks and knitting needles for Christmas, I took the opportunity to buy a class on sale to help me with my crocheting.

So, after a hard week’s work of learning between taking care of my little Evelyn, I have created a friend for her:

(By the way, the person behind the class/cute creations can be found on this website. She posts some of her things for free and has some great patterns and instructions for beginners like me!)

I have been so happy by how quickly I made this little bird and plan on making a few more before progressing on to the next item in the class- a bear!

Don’t worry. If I make it that far, I’ll be posting pictures. I won’t be able to help myself.
