Love of Crocheting

Oh how I love to crochet!
I am always working on a project.
I have shown you many of my
Crochet projects.
From my delicate doilies
 To the hundreds of flowers (literally)
And crocheted blossom pillows
 Not to forget the many little goody baskets I have made.
 I have made so many afghans I have lost count.
 I started this one over a year ago.
But I just now finished it. . . 
Why did it take me so long. . .?
Hmm! I made a big mistake.
I had to unravel an almost complete afghan!
 Now, believe me my projects are not perfect.
But, this mistake was one I couldn't live with.
So I started over. . .
 In the end I completed a beautiful snuggley afghan
Just in time for the Cool evenings of Fall
And soon to be Cold evenings of Winter
 I am happy with my beautiful afghan.
And I am sooooooo, grateful I know how to crochet.
Many, many years ago my Grandma Dot
"Tried" to teach me how to crochet.
It wasn't until many years later that I
Seriously picked up the "hook" and became 
"Hooked" on crocheting.
It relaxes me.
I thank God everyday for the talents He has
Blessed me with.
Not only do they bless my life
But they bless others.

I am linking with these fabulous blogs;

  1. Hi Karie,
    Me too, I love to crochet I am working on a heart blanket right now in yellow. I love your ripple afghan it turned out beautifully. I know what you mean about having to rip out a mistake. I had to do the same thing just the other night about ten inches and all the trim, I have begun to sew two panles together and found my booboo..I was not happy, but like you I could not live with it. Your doilies are so pretty I really do love them. We are so much a like!
    Sending you big hugs, Elizabeth
