No one got up and went back to the yarn boxes after church. I felt compelled to. When I opened those boxes I gasped at the glory inside. the pure beauty of color and texture. unbelievable. I came home with 2 bags full and began almost immediately. But first, yarn in hand, crochet needle in hand, I couldn't remember how to start because I had always let my mom do that for me. What now, it's midnight and she's asleep. Um, google...start a crochet chain? You Tube you are magnificent! I have taken my own pics here to document and show you how to make a chain, which is the first step in crocheting.
I have 2 crochet projects started. Yep, I'm always working on 10 things at once. I get bored and restless easily. 1 project also uses the same muscles repeatedly, causing me pain. So, I mix it up. The one thing about this yarn is that there were no 2 a like and most were small skeins. They were all different kinds of whacky made yarn made by hand mostly and very eclectic! I had no clue what I would do with them. I matched them up and decided which one would go first, etc. I began and have went through so many emotions. Emotions triggered by crocheting? What?! The way they felt in my hands.soft. The way they felt in my hands as they came together. comforting. secure. They came together wacky and I had a lot of self-doubt but convinced myself to keep going. I switched mediums (yarn textures), needle sizes, and tension. My momma was wowed, I think. Are they gonna be prayers shawls that sit in your lap...well? They are gonna be shawls for sure beyond that I do not know. I told my hubster I was listening to the yarn. It will shape it's self.
