I’d begun the year writing about fake games and apps for my Friday posts. The games, the majority of them, were scams, and I had to spend way too much time just trying to get the minimum amount required to request a payout. It became too time consuming, and I have too much to do to waste time. So, my final word on the matter is a small piece of advice: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
So, what will I be writing about on Fridays from now on?? My second favorite thing to do by myself:
I happen to enjoy crocheting a great deal. I was taught at the tender age of 10 by a nice old lady who volunteered her time at the children’s home I was living in at the time. The Rio Grande Valley Children’s Home was the name of it, and I lived there for a few years in the late 70s and early 80s.
Ever since I learned how to crochet, I’ve never wanted to stop. I could keep my hands busy while watching television and even focus better on conversations – Attention Deficit Disorder was unheard of back then. My mother thought I was mentally deficient because of the issues I had, and she never missed a chance to tell me – it was a difficult time.
Now, a million years later, I want to share my love for crochet with you, my readers, better than just showing you things I’ve made. I’m not a designer, but I am a researcher. I tend to lose myself for hours looking at patterns. I have nearly three pages full of bookmarks on my computer, I kid you not! I’m thinking about going through my bookmarks and finally doing the projects I’ve got earmarked. They’re all free patterns so you won’t have to buy any. With this is mind, I’m going to share with you a lovely pattern I found just in time for Valentine’s Day!! It’s called the Sweetheart Spike Scarf, and the pattern was created by Whitney at Pine Tree Crochet. Go to the link below for the pattern:
If you decide to make the scarf please, let me and Whitney know – especially Whitney, and I’m sure we’d both love to see what you made as well!! Have fun!
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
