So this left me researching other avenues to send my creativity into. I wanted something very hands on and not at all digital. I spend all day working on the computer (trust me I love it) but I want something to get me away for at least a few minutes a day. I have tossed around the possibility of exploring knitting or crocheting but always felt quite overwhelmed. After a trip to Hobby Lobby with my mom a few days ago, I decided on crocheting.
This little kit will be my guide, as well as many, many online tutorials. Yes, I know I wanted to get away from the computer, but it is nice to actually watch someone do this very tedious little craft.
I am currently just playing around with the stitches and teaching my hands how to hold the hook and yarn. I think it will take a bit of time before I am able to complete anything that I am truly happy with or that is worth showing off. But for now, it is something to occupy my time and allow me to express my creativity in a different way.
This is what I have so far. I honestly don't know what it is or what it will be, but I can already see improvement from my first row to the last.
