Before I had an online store, or even a computer for that matter, I used to love to crochet. I still do but haven’t found the time to go back to it. Making jewelry for my shop, taking photos, editing, listing, marketing and being online in general suck up all my time.
I still have the sweaters, hats and blankets I made for my daughter when she was a child. She’s all grown up now but I can’t seem to part with some of the crocheted things I made. There are so many items that I sometimes thought of donating them to a church or some other worthwhile organization, but I can’t. They’re precious momentos for me now. I also made childrens’ sweaters and hats for sale at craft shows and even some of these, I’m holding on to. I don’t really know why except that I still like the the way they turned out.
Here are two of the sweaters I made a long, long time ago. I never did like to count stitches or follow patterns so I made them up as I went along.
