But with the little buccaneer back to his hearty self, life is returning to normal once again (of course, that's a relative term, but let's not get into that now.)
While my little pirate was feeling a bit green about the gills I was able to—finally—make an attempt at learning to crochet. And let's just say it was a little wonky at first. Perhaps starting with the thinnest thread and itsy-bitsiest hook wasn't the wisest way to begin, but what can I say, it's what spoke to me.
In any case, with microscopic hook in hand I turned to Martha first, in particular this post and this post. Both of which were very helpful. As you may recall, it was this project that I planned to start with (also from Martha):
So, in true craft-a-holic fashion, I've started looking for my next crochet project before actually finishing my first. Ah well. Here are a few things that caught my eye.
