Happy New Year!!

Did everyone ring in the New Year? I didn't. LOL! Hannah and I were sound asleep. Anyway, Happy New Year to ALL!!

As for crafting, yesterday I spent some time working on my crochet skills. hee! hee! I just can't stand not working for the babies over the next months on bedrest. I had to learn to do something that I could do in the bed.

I was frustrated and having a difficult time. I changed yarn and needles and found an online video. It made a BIG difference and I'm making some progress now.

I'm doing the chain, single crochet, slip, and double crochet. :-) Here are a few pictures. If anyone out there reading has any advice, I'd love it. Constructive criticism is always welcome. I wonder if things are a bit too tight.

Here's to 2007!!

Looks good to me, Candy! Your hands will get the right feel for things with just a little practice, and you'll be able to adjust your gauge accordingly. As you do this more, try a simple but lovely blanket pattern - ch any multiple of three, then sc, hdc and dc, over and over, on every row. Don't stress over it and enjoy!

I don't know how to crochet so I can't help, but your stitches look good to me.
