-Voila! My first ever crochet. I made the long and lovely journey into the city by train this week and a wonderful schoolfriend taught me (or at least valiantly attempted) how to crochet. I always feel bad I haven't made the kids a single solitary scarf. I started on a baby blanket when I was pregnant with the Sprocket - and it's still sitting, half finished, in a drawer in my parents house. But no more. I am determined to get crafty! I'm not aiming high, I doubt I'll ever be up to booties or bonnets, but surely a scarf or blanket can't be too hard. Can it?
-This gorgeous baby (eleven months old, I'm not sure where the time went!) was an inspiration and great help while I was learning to crochet. She was also suitably impressed with my rather gorgeous yarn.
