Since I'm knitting outside my color box, I may as well stay on the outs. Before I was a knitter I was a hooker and I made everything from crochet. Sweaters, vests, granny squares, lace, afghans, slippers...baby stuff, tons of other stuff. In 1974 I learned to knit and rarely went back to the hooks. This pineapple afghan is the only piece of crochet I've made since 1974 (made in 1986), except for the most recent hooked adventure, the Larger Than Life Bag (Rav link).
It took me two days of deliberation (with myself) to decided to join in the Potholder Swap. Adrian has gone a little over the top for crochet as of late, as has Maryse. I'm always enticed, but never drawn completely in...until now. The potholders must be crocheted and that gave me pause...thus the deliberation, but in the end it sounds fun and a little different. Time to oil up my rusty crochet skills, dust off the hooks and jump in. You have until tomorrow to do the same!
I'm spending the weekend with Lily. Whatever you do have a good one!
