I started crocheting again one day when I was stressed, and wanted to see if I still knew what my mother and grandmother had taught me when I was around age seven. So I've really only been crocheting for about a year and a half now. I have done many scarves, a few hats (one turned out to be the size of a fruit bowl :/ ), and just finished my very first granny square afghan. I'm still in the beginner phase of things, but very much want to move forward. The next project on my list is a sweater for my mother. I want it to be her first new piece of clothing after her GB surgery! Here's hoping it goes well!
