It’s my birthday!!

Woohoo!! I always like to spend today working on something for myself because well, it’s my birthday. But also because I don’t normally make things for myself. And with it being right after the holidays and having spent what seems like forever making things for everyone else, it’s a nice change to make something for me 🙂

What I forgot about and remembered yesterday is that I’m celebrating my 10 year crochet-iversary!! It was 10 years ago during my winter break somewhere in the end of December / beginning of January that my mom taught me to crochet! I picked out a pretty pink yarn (Lion Brand Homespun) and a pretty colored hook (Boye 5.0mm). I learned how to chain and do double crochets and tried to make a scarf. Believe it or not, I wasn’t very good. I kept dropping the last stitch of the row because I couldn’t tell it was there thanks to the yarn. So my scarf edges were super wobbly and it ended in a point 😐 yaaaaay I eventually went back, frogged it, and redid it. It came out a perfect rectangle. I did what I still do now, I gifted it to a really good friend. So I don’t have it or any pictures.

But guess what I do have??! Some of that exact yarn!!! This is what I’m going to use for my birthday project 🙂 I’m so excited! And this time I’m going to keep it!! I’m not sure what I’m going to make because I only have the one skein. So I’m going to look through my stitch books and pick something out I like and make another scarf, most likely. I’m not sure what else to make with one skein besides a hat and I just made myself another one of those (first project of 2017 but it’s a test so I can’t show you yet!)

I use Ravelry to help keep track of my projects but I haven’t always used it. I joined in 2011 and as of right now I have 208 projects! I know that’s not even all of them since 2011. Some of those I grouped together and some I never added. And then there’s everything I did before then! Countless items. Can’t wait to see what I make today and in the next 10 years!

On the Hook:

  • Birthday Item
  • Baby G’s things
  • Bacon and Eggs Scarf
