Let's do it...
Crochet.....yes that's may latest passion these days. And when I say "latest", I really mean it. I have this habit of starting a project, and then in midway, if it starts getting too long or gets stuck somewhere, I just get bored out of it and whooosh.... it is stashed somewhere in the closet of my other unfinished projects.
But this time, I really really want this project of mine to see the end of the tunnel and not get stashed with its other fellow buddies in the closet.
Almost every weekend, we go to the public library to get some books and DVDs for my son. And every time I am in the library, I definitely make sure to checkout the magazine section. Fiction section has long been lost behind; ever since Aayush gives me just enough time just to flip pages in a magazine and not finish a complete novel/book.
So lately most of the magazines that I check out are either crocheting, quilting or beading project related books. As I was growing up, my mom did make sure to teach me every skill she wanted her daughters to learn - Knitting, crocheting, embroidery, painting, dancing, sewing, cooking - you name it. So I pretty much know the basic stitches and all. But ever since I moved to US, it seems like ages that I have even touched a crochet hook. So I was a little apprehensive about starting a project and that too based on a pattern in the book.
But then this project caught my eye and I just wanted to do it. I just loved the design so much that I immediately got the exact color yarn the very next day. And as of today I am almost 25% into it.
