Skills I Wish I Had {Summer #BlogChallenge}

HTML knowledge.  I'd love to change a few things with my blog {how it looks}, but have NO clue where to start.  Instead all I see is this...


Crochet.  Yes, I can knit and sometimes sew, but when it comes to crocheting it feels like I have seven thumbs and am only able to use my left hand.  Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but I tried and was not able to.  Granted, it was my 70+ year old neighbor who kept taking the yarn and hook away from me, maybe it would be a different story if I had someone more patient.  I'd love to be able to purchase this pattern below-not that I need another tea cozy.

Picture from here.

  1. I've been trying to teach myself how to crotchet... I can make a chain stitch a mile long, but have problems when it comes to starting the next row!

  2. I tried too. Never made it far. And my sisters make such beautiful things.

  3. I find crocheting to be easier than knitting. My crochet projects work up so much faster but I find I have to concentrate harder on what I'm doing and cannot look away as much as I can while knitting.

    I'd trade you a crochet project for a knitted one.

    Just check some of the templates on blogger and see if there's one you like. However, I do like your current one. I do find, though, changing things up once in a while is nice.
