Works in Progress

I'm really enjoying changing things up, so I decided to take things a little further by learning how to crochet.

The projects I decided to try are on the slow side.  Below are a couple of works in progress.

I needed a break from making stuff for my loved ones.  So when I saw Futuregirl's crochet beaded bracelet tutorial, I knew I had to make this for myself.

The bottom photo is my first attempt at making an amigurumi.  I'm hoping to have this done in time for my husband on father's day.

I'm learning that crochet is relaxing, but not something I want to do often.  I do love making things for my loved ones when they request it though, so you may see more projects scattered about here and there.

I have to laugh that you say crocheting is relaxing because I am so tense when I try that my hands cramp and I'm so miserable. Shame too cause I love what you can make with it. Great bracelet, what a perfect little gift to yourself, the beads are a gorgeous colour.

Hahah, B! Yes, it is relaxing once I got the hang of it. My hands and wrists were hurting too when I was trying to figure it out! I can only do it in bits here and there, which is why it's all slow going. :)
