Whenever the weather gets cold (did I mention that we had frozen precipitation? can't really call it snow...), my mind turns to all manner of yarn-related crafting.
Bring on the needles and hooks!
I've started my very first afghan. I've never crocheted anything larger than a hat, but I was feeling ambitious, I guess.
I'm about 25% finished with the "blocks" and then I'll have to seam them all together, which I am imagining is going to take just as long as making the blocks themselves. But gosh darnit, I'm making an afghan!
