A new phase begins! I was searching around on Pinterest and found a photo of a lovely crocheted blanket via Ohdeedoh and was instantly inspired to start crocheting. I loved that the blanket incorporated all kinds of left over yarn, in all colors, that would surely keep any short-attention-spanned crafter [like myself] occupied for days.
And what's even better is that I flew home to find that my mother was gifted with several boxes of FREE yarn from our church! Jackpot! So yesterday evening, I sat down and looked up some tutorials on how to crochet. So different from knitting but not so different...do you know what I mean? Since then, I've been playing around and practicing with different size crochet hooks and getting a feel for how to create the granny squares. It seems that I've traded my knits and purls for double crochet's and shells.
Here's my initial inspiration that I found on Pinterest [Via Ohdeedoh]:

Any crochet-ers out there? Tips or hints for a beginner like me? I'll have to keep you all posted on my progress!
