Recently I took to youtube to learn a new skill that I was curious about. Crochet.
I am already 100% addicted. I liked knitting but I am slightly too impatient for it. Crochet is so fast, it’s incredibly satisfying. I am doing it when I am down for the count with health issues as it keeps me sane and lets me continue on being creative. Having said that, because I am delving into textiles and mixed media more and more, I am thinking when I get a few more techniques under my belt, I can utilize it in my artwork as well.
Right now I am making a very typical afghan from granny squares (which I used to think was naf and now love) and working on a gorgeous round scarf with rainbow yarn I bought in Holland last year.
