Project: Crochet Bowl

Okay, so I’ve had so many projects lately that I haven’t even had time to blog about any of them. So, it’s time to be a tougher task master to myself! Get it done, my inner voices yells. Not later, NOW! Okay, stop nagging, I think in reply, I’m doing it. ๐Ÿ™‚

My current crochet project is a lovely bowl from a freebie pattern I picked up at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores in Texas when I was visiting earlier this summer. I made one and it turned out to be great fun and a bit of a challenge for me as novice crocheter — a mere one step up from beginner! It’s the first project that I’ve done using front and back post stitches. I really like them; I just have to pay extra attention to keep the pattern correct, especially when my pre-schooler is around “supervising”!

I gave the first one to my mother-in-law (who I think is still perplexed about what to put in it).ย  I decided to make a second one for myself. Turns out that my cat loves it, but he’s a bit too big. I kicked him out and now I have it sitting on my kitchen counter filled to the brim with Buckeyes. Maybe I’ll have to make a larger version as a cat bed? Hmmm, on to the next project, I suppose.
