A Year In Stitches

I like to think that I’m an advanced crocheter. Wouldn’t you agree? I’ve crocheted cardigans, hats, cowls, amigurumis and so much more. But, I’m starting to realize that I don’t use that many stitches. That might be because I don’t make blankets. Blankets just take too long and I get bored. It took me 2.5 years to make my son’s blanket and it turned into an afghan. He was so happy when I told him it was finished that I was glad I didn’t make it it’s original size. I swore then that I’d never make another blanket.

I’ve decided that I’m going to learn some new stitches this year, 24 to be exact. I’m going to learn two a month. I will post them here for you all to see as I work on them. Some will be hats, some ear warmers. I’ll even be making a few snuggle blankets.
