My hands were itching for a crochet hook. I didn’t have any yarn project going on at the moment and as the weather was slowly getting colder, my thoughts directed themselves toward a blanket. Small blanket projects are appealing because one can finish them before getting bored.
So, I went for a search into my yarn basket and selected four colors that are perfect for baby crocheting : pastel blue, pastel pink, pastel yellow and white.
I was in the mood for a new stitch and recalled an email I received from The Crochet Crowd. Mikey, the host, always has tons of projects to suggest to his subscribers. And he makes video tutorials. I viewed the video titled Learn to Crochet: Juicy Fruits Afghan and set to work.
That particular stitch is very easy to start and very easy to follow — it’s near impossible to get lost in your stiches. (Meaning you can easily watch tv while doing it, in opposition to only listen to it.) The rows are built quite fast. For me, that equals gratifying.
In fact, the stitch is somewhat addictive. Every time I finished a row, I just wanted to add an other one. I could have go on forever, but I had to stop at some point as the afghan is destined to a child. Maybe I’ll start another one…
