It's cold in the south
It's just plain chilly Possum's! Yep! I'd say it's cold. Both yesterday and today have been cold out. Kind of early for this kind of weather. Had to turn the heat on to take the chill out of the air! And we also got more rain this weekend. The plants are lovin it! So I wonder off to the kitchen for a hot cup of JO! Warm up my Sock insides. Now that I'm warm and cuddly we can get down to blog business.
Went to the thrift store last week and found a bag full of yarn. Thought I'd take it home for craft projects. When I got home and opened the bag,I found granny squares completed inside. Well...I've never crocheted in my life. So I thought I'd give it a try. See if I could crochet them together. The crochet hook came with it all. So I started a simple chain stitch and put them all together. Somehow I figured it out and they are all together now. So then I got interested in tryin to further carry on. I went back to the thrift store and found other scraps of yarn so I could pratice and teach myself how to crochet. It got bigger and bigger! Looks like I might have an afgan to keep me warm on the sofa this winter. It can now cover me while I work on it. It's not a pretty afgan,but a good one to practice on.
It's been a crafty week indeed. Created another Sock creature. Not a Sock Monkey mind ya,but a creature. Twas a fun adventure. Mr. Spiderwick would be proud.
I hope you guys have a wonderful week! Bubba
