New Skill: Crochet
When I say Life List, you know what I mean, right? It's that list of all the amazing things you want to do before you, ya know, kick the bucket. Well, very near the top of my Life List was -you guessed it- learn to crochet a granny square. Big dreams, big dreams... So yesterday, I sat down with my little sister and together we worked on teaching me how to crochet. Yes, admittedly, it's not one of my crafty strengths. But I was determined to at least make one granny square before I die. And sure, the fact that I am left-handed was a stumbling block, but that didn't stop me. Hell no. I worked on that orange one for quite a while. I ripped it out... oh say... 8-ish times until I was able to (all on my own mind you) get it right.
