I have recently discovered the world of Crochet and Oh My God! What a wonderful world it is.
It all started a week ago on a lazy Friday afternoon, I was flicking from post to post on Pinterest looking at craft ideas to do with my nieces and nephew in the Easter holidays and happened upon a picture of a crochet Pikachu someone had made. Well…as you can imagine my interest was peaked.
Who was this cute little electric mouse? Who made him? Could I make him? How much more would my fiancé worship me if I could hand him his very own homemade Pikachu?
A thousand clicks later, I was hooked. I was dreaming of the day when I too would have crocheted all original 150 Pokémon. And something about that vision made me tingle all over with childlike wonder – suddenly the possibilities were endless.
Luckily, I didn’t have to wait long to get started. My mother-in-law happens to knit and had some spare yarn and a crochet hook for me to use.
Well, now all my friends and family think I’m some crazy old lady at age 28 because I get excited over the prospect of getting home so I can wrap myself in a blanket and crochet to my heart’s content while binge-watching episodes of Bones.
So far, I have been doing practice swatches but I have now moved on to crocheting a sleeve for my laptop so I’ll post again to let you guys know how I got on.
Stay Unique. Stay Creative.
