I think I can...

The Internet is amazing!!! Every time I log onto my computer I am blown away by the information that is at our finger tips. In fact today a friend of mine posted these sweet videos on her blog about the exponential times we live in.

Since Christmas I have been on a crochet-kick because Chuck bought me new hooks and yarn. I have been working on a baby blanket for our little girl. I wanted to have something to remind her of how excited we were for her arrival and that I anticipated each day... a few stitches at a time. It takes me longer than normal on a project because of my carpal tunnel but I feel an extra sense of accomplishment when I finish something.

Earlier this week I saw a picture of a friend's little girl in the cutest crochet hat with a little flower on it. Turns out her sister-in law makes them and sells them online. I really wanted to buy one, yet finding out that someone made something themselves leaves me asking the question... can I do that?

So I searched online for patterns... I found one that was similar (however her pattern is way cuter, and so is the little girl in the photo!) I made the hat and am still on the look out for the perfect flower to add to it. I even found out how to make little crochet butterflies, I think when I make one for baby girl I will put a little butterfly on it.


Yea for craftiness!!! I wonder what else I can make?

Oh no... I can feel it happening. I am transforming already, pretty soon this blog will be pasted with craft project updates and baby photos galore!!! Oh well I suppose life would be boring if we didn't transform and get to wander through all of it's different phases.

I must say, i'm impressed! That hat turned out way cute, way to go! I'm really sorry about your carpal tunnel. It's the pits. I have it too but i don't think it's quite as bad as yours :( Hang in there!

All of my crafiness got put in the back of the closet when James was born. Now it's buried by all the snow in the front yard
