Weekend Cardigan

I just finished my first real cardigan, sleeves and all!  I found this great little pattern with the sleeves done as one piece with the body.  No real shaping involved.  It was super quick. Started on Thursday evening and finished on Sunday.

Be Creative! 💙 Jeanne

Back to the Beginning

Someone recently asked about a simple blog to use and I suggested Blogger.  They then requested a link to mine and I was pretty shocked to see I had not wrote anything in over 3 years.

I have to say I really regret not keeping up with this journal as the past 3 years have been an amazing journey to say the least.  The biggest part was becoming part of The Crochet Crowd.  What an ride it's been!

It all began in February 2015 when I went on my first Crochet Cruise.  I went alone, but came help with friendship and memories that will last a lifetime.  But the best was becoming friends with Michael Sellick.  He is a great person, who is genuine, smart and just fun to be around.  We continued to chat through messenger after the trip, and by September he offered me a spot on his team.  He has pushed and inspired me to do things that I never thought I could.  He has helped me live out some of the dreams that I never even knew I had inside me.  He has become my best friend.

Since then, I can't even begin to count the crochet projects I have done.  I think in 2016, there might be about 5 days where I never touched a hook.  It has become a healthy obsession and an important part of my day.

Here are some of my favorite projects from 2016.

And the one I'm most proud of... 

The Glacier Cowl.  I get such a thrill every time I see another crocheter making this cowl.
