My 1st Crochet Project

I have finally finished my first crochet project!!

I actually have been working on it for a couple months, ok, since May, but in total it did not take too long. I just had some really long breaks.

I made this for a friend of mine who is about a month out from having her second child… woo hoo! When I started it, she didn’t know what she was having yet, but turns out its another boy! So I am glad I chose the colors I did.

Here is the project (a baby blanket), minutes after I finished.


It is in no way perfect, and I will remind my friend that is sure has a lot of me in it… including some of my hair, our dogs hair, and I can’t for get the little wine I accidentally spilt on it. (It is so hard to control your wine and crocheting on the airplane).

Here is the close up of the stitch. Being so new, I have no idea what kind of stich I used, but I did 3 rows of each color. You can find the pattern HERE.


I have more projects on my to do list, but I wanted to share this with you before it slipped away from me!

I am currently living out of friends houses since we got Hawaii. I can’t wait to get a house and get my craft room back! Don’t you just love my hotel room comforter?

Happy Crocheting!

Wow. That is super for your first try at it. Do you have lots of yarn shops in Hawaii? If not, call me, and I can send you some lovely yarns.
