Since I can no longer knit (my left thumb with arthritis won't allow it)--last evening I
watched videos from "Annie's Attic" and learned how to crochet. (I think anyway!)
I have decided to make an afghan-- all in double crochet stitch (dc) to practice gauge and tension. I have a couple skeins of hand painted blue yarn (worsted weight or so--can't recall really!!) and a few balls of that luscious Noro variegated yarn leftover from my knitting days.
And so..... I cast on 250 (!!) stitches while watching Poirot on Netflix as my DH was out playing his gig.
Here are a few shots of the colorways in my first ball of the Noro--taupes, ranging to dark
peach and lighter tones.....
I definitely like the feel of crochet...and am hoping that my wrist will cooperate.
this amaryllis that I received for Christmas has finally decided to bloom giving the impression that perhaps, SPRING is a possibility in the not too distant future!!
But, sad to say, I think Mother Nature still has some cold, snowy days ahead for us here in coastal CT....
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday
