On friday I told you about all the firsts I would be involved in last weekend…
My friend Bonnie and I went into Toronto for the DKC Knit Frolic!
Lots of people and potential treasures
Some friends from home
and hi Debbie D! (wish I took your picture too)
Treasures that came home with me :0)
First Communion of my Cousins little girl.
First Birthday of their little boy.
and I actually learned to Crochet a strip of Mile a minute afghan
well more like a foot in and hour… Cool, my only crochet accomplishment has been granny squares to this point!
Really good video instruction!
Background for this success story: Crochet has never really appealed to me, I had a brush with brain tumors, a few years ago. Stuck in bed with mobility issues, and knitting being a little too much to wrap my head around, my darling mother brought me a crochet hook and a Ball (a round ball) of yarn, and a book… needless to say the book and hook went into beside table drawer and ball is still on vacation with the dust bunnies somewhere! Totally frustrated…who wants to crochet anyway (this was probably a really bad time to start a new skill) DH brought me a spindle and a hand full of fibre, tranquility was restored :0)
and the Scrap Jar for April
Oh and Jack is famous, he’s in the Guardian Uk news
And after all this I am Zonked!
