Wordless (almost) Wednesday - Look what I can crochet!

So it's been about a month since I took up crocheting. I made two "scarves" - which weren't really scarves, more or less, they were shit. I then met up with my girl Lydia over at NoDayWithoutYarn and everything has been getting better since then!

Here are some photos of the things I've been making:

Cell phone cozy for me.
(Totally not perfect, but this was the first project I made and finished!)

Cell phone cozy for Husband.
(He requested his team colors. This was my first time using two colors at once!)


Valentine's Day project: Hearts for...

A Heart Garland!

So I've totally learned how to slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, and triple crochet. I'm so proud of myself! :))

    1. Thank you! I have a lot of time on my hands while I wait for this baby, and I like to keep my hands busy. Crocheting is, so far, fun! :)

      I'm doing great, actually. No health problems and baby is due in about a week! I hope he comes out on time. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Love the heart garland. I learned to crochet from my grandma way back when in Germany. But with 3 kids underfoot I don't get to it too often. By the way I used to live not too far from were you are now. Well, at least with the Autobahn it's not too far. (Near Leipzig.)

    1. haha, No kidding! I'm sure 3 kids would keep any mom busy!
      And of course I know where Leipzig is. I'm pretty sure we've gone over this before, too. haha :)

    1. Thank you! And all I did was watch a YouTube video on learning to crochet, and then I just had at it! I also use the website www.Ravelry.com to find new patterns, ideas, and chat with other crocheters. :)
