Crocheting is Back

Don't let anyone tell you crocheting has to be just for old ladies and church bazaars - (even though if it weren't for these said "years experienced ladies" we wouldn't even know how to crochet! - so I say  - Thank you! to them).  Crocheting is so much fun - I was introduced to it several years ago by my mother in law. Her father had carved these crochet hooks from the limbs from a Bodock Tree.  I love them.  They are so smooth and glide just right through the yarn.  They've got all the love of handmade in them too.  She gave them to me during a visit to Mississippi and taught me a simple chain stitch in the back seat of the Tahoe.  I had one good long chain by the time we made it back to Birmingham!
 
So, my sister started a new photography business - Bellies to Babies - she's in the northern Indiana area.  A good midwestern girl!  She taking the most adorable pictures of, well, bellies and babies!  She had asked me to make her a few little hats for the little boys to wear.  I'm not sure these will be the right size for newborn heads though.  I tried cramming one on my 3 year old, but he wasn't having any of that.  Guess blood flow to the head is important even to a 3 year old, hmmm..
So, back to crocheting - it's very relaxing once you get the hang of it - gives you immediate results - and allows you to sit and still feel productive, (important if you are a crazed mother!) - and is therepeutic.  Guess that's another reason why I have been drawn to it in the last several days.  My family has been facing some really tough issues.  I don't need to say a lot about it, but I do want to say how much I admire and love my mother in law and would appreciate any prayers you send her way.
Now, go get crocheting!
