Start Something New with Help from @DKCanada

It’s a new year and with the new year comes all kinds of goals and resolutions. Last week, I shared my health goals and today I would like to share how I plan on starting something new, just for me.

My Mom taught me how to crochet when I was a kid, but it is not something that I continued. I love crafts, but I have not made time for them in quite a while. Now is the time to do just that, make time for crafts.

Knitting and crocheting seem to be rather trendy right now. There are all kinds of tutorials for beautiful scarves out there, so over the holidays, I decided to tackle one of them.

I made this:


Sorry about the poor quality image.


Since making that scarf, I have been on the look out for more easy crochet patterns and I also came across this book:


Get Started: Crochet teaches beginners basic stitches and shows how to start crocheting with 20 easy projects, including hats, blankets, and baby clothes.
