Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Snow and crochet

As PeeWee Herman said, "It's snowing, it's snowing, it's snow-ho-hoing!
That probably went over some people's heads! I love watching PeeWee!

Anyhoo, I hope everyone is safe and warm. I'm going to crochet and finish binge-watching "Shameless" on Netflix. I always wait until a show is either years old or cancelled. Go figure!
When I was in the ninth grade (1967-1968), I stayed after school to learn to knit from my Home Economics teacher, Mrs. Betty Dickson. I was hooked! Then in 1971, my ex-husband's aunt gave all the girls (except me) a granny-square vest. I was only 18 and so disappointed! So, with a Woman's Day magazine, I taught myself to crochet. I found this pattern booklet....
 .....and 45 years later, I finally made one!

I also made a poncho....

Thanks for the inspiration, Shelley Oldenburg!
That's it for now! Stay warm and crochet!
