After three years and two months, I FINALLY finished the knit blanket I promised Boogs. In my defense, it was supposed to only be a small throw blanket. But, Boogs asked if I could make it big enough to go on his future college dorm bed. This is a picture of the blanket in November 2017.
Boogs was very happy to have it finally finished!
I like to make and create things, so I started trying to figure out my next craft. I tried watching a few youtube videos on how to draw. That is not an area of talent for me. I did draw a halfway decent turtle.
And, I found an amazing step-by-step VIDEO by RapidFireArt on how to draw a hyper realistic eye. I was amazed at how well this turned out when I followed along exactly with the video. I was unable to duplicate it without the video.
A friend gave me this gigantic ball of yarn for Christmas. I knew I wanted to use it in some way but I was not up for knitting another blanket. My sister makes beautiful crochet pieces so I thought I would try crocheting.
I knew I needed help learning how to crochet and magically (I know they are listening) an ad for Woobles appeared in my Facebook feed. Justine, the co-founder of Woobles, puts together adorable crochet beginner kits. Everything you need to get started comes in the kit. I ordered the penguin kit.
I used the pattern and videos and tried again. My second penguin was ADORABLE!
