I finally did something :)

Hi all!  It is a dreary, rainy day here in Ohio. It's one of those days that call for warm quilts, hot chocolate, and a good book.  So besides the never ending job of laundry and 2 little kids I'm taking a slow, cozy day.  Right after Christmas a brand new skein of blue yarn and a brand new crochet needle appeared in our house and I decided it was my chance to once again try my hand at crocheting.  I'm a girl who has never liked the "Susie Homemaker" type of crafting.  I'd rather apply paint to something.  But lately I've gotten the hankering to do something simple with my hands in the evening when the hubs is hogging the computer :)

And here is proof that I can actually do this girlie stuff after all.  Maybe motherhood has toned down the tom-boy in me or is it the gray hair that seems to be taking over my head causing me to feel like an old lady. LOL

Here is my 1st scarf that I finished up last week. While I was making it this little guy claimed it as his. Now all  the other 2 boys are wanting one.  So I looked over at Girlie and asked her if she wanted me to make her one, she shook her head no.  It was the perfect response and cracked me up because that is the same answer I would have given my mom back in the day.  The green one above is Sam's. He was with me at Wal*Mart and I asked him which color he wanted :)  Such a nice mommy I am :P  I'm trying to do this right.  I don't want to be too old lady-ish by making stuff out of weird colors!!

The proud owner wanted me to snap this picture. He is acting like "Scrooge" where Marley meets him at his front door. LOL Crazy kid!!

Have a great day!!


  1. I am in the middle of my first scarf as well. Love how well this one turned out. I'm your newest member, would love to have you stop by when you get the chance :)

  2. How very nice!! I've finally decided to try to LEARN how to crochet! (After my two teenage daughters have learned and have talked me into it!) My grandmother failed to teach me and so did my husband's aunt. I just couldn't figure it out. But I looked at Homestead Acres's blog and she has a tutorial...non threatening!!!
    Blessings! Beth

  3. Your scarves turned out great. They looks so warm and cozy. I love to crochet!

  4. Beautiful scarf and so handsome on your little guy. Love the color and the stitch is pretty.
    Hope you warm up there. Have a nice weekend. Thank you for stopping by and becoming a new follower.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie
