We have been pretty busy doing our schooling, keeping the house, taking care of the pets, and crafting away. Buggie has taken up crocheting with me. It's been quite fun having a crafting buddy. Bear tried it and decided he was not quite ready. So, my darling girl and I get to spend time together. We have also taken up knitting, or attempted to take it up.
I have managed to knit four simple scarves for my darling family. There is something so wonderful in wrapping your loved ones up in handmade things. I just need to learn to purl and then read a pattern!
In other news, I finally sat down to learn to read a crochet pattern. It is amazing! I feel like I can do most anything now! I do think it helps that the pattern is amazing! It's on Ravelry, called the Goldberry Shawl. My husband gifted me the pattern and yarn for my birthday. I had put them on my wish list because one of my goals this year is to read a crochet pattern. I chose a Madeline Tosh yarn named Shire which is absolutely perfect for the shawl. It is all Tolkien inspired and so wonderful. I finished up row five last night. Isn't this pattern stunning?
That is all for now. Thank you for stopping by. xx
