And The Peasants Rejoiced!

Welcome to my little crocheting corner of the 'net. I'm Christina, freshly engaged to my boyfriend of 8 years and to be honest, am freaking out over all the plans I have to make.  I've been crocheting for over 10 years but this is the first time I'm going to put myself out there with the things I make out of yarn and a hook. 

I felt empowered this morning though when I was trudging into work and some random woman got on the elevator with me and said, "Third floor please.  Oh!  I love your bag!".  I pushed the button and realized she was talking about the crocheted purse I'd made for myself several weeks ago.  ::blush::  I told her I'd made it myself and she looked shocked.  But asked me right away if it was knitted or crocheted.  :)

I just joined a group on Ravelry for bloggers and while they are at the tail end of their year long blog-a-long, I'm jumping in feet first so I hold myself accountable for the things I want to make for the wedding.

I'm going to make a page for the patterns I plan on working on now and throughout the year.  We're thinking of an October wedding so I'd better get hooking!


  1. Welcome to the land of blogging a very addictive thing. I'm glad to be your first follower so now I can keep up with all of your wonderful creations for your up coming wedding. Although a stressful time its also the most memorable so relax and go with the flow is my advice. I'm over from the Year of Projects post on ravelry and we will be doing a second year so never fear its never to late to join in lol.
